The Importance of Game of Thrones

In politics, strategy and foreign policy - there are a lot of things to be learned from GameOfThrones.

Soon. Via TheInterpreter;
Here are my ten strategic lessons from Game of Thrones:
  1. Trust no-one. 
  2. Women who hold political power know how to use it. 
  3. Make sure you have spies everywhere — your rivals will. 
  4. Policy is not rational — all politics is court politics. 
  5. In strategy, timing is everything. 
  6. If you want a friend, get a dog, better still a wolf. 
  7. When it comes to defence, don't put faith in a wall.
  8. Debt is decay.
  9. Keep your head'
  10. And don't get complacent — winter is coming.
#8 is germane. Oh, while we're at it.
