M: The only thing I can say in answer to that question is not going to be very helpful: if you'll look at military historians from Theucidides and the Peloponnesian wars, down through von Clausiwitz to modern day military historians, the one thing they say is, once you initiate a military action like this, with some vision of what you want to happen, you have not the vaguest idea of what in fact is going to happen.
