When you are down to your last two army men — the radio guy vs. the fixed-bayonet guy — who wins? Does the bayonet guy rush forward and take out the seemingly defenseless radio guy? Or does the radio guy get a call in for mortar or air cover before bayonet guy does his worst to him?
This is not a metaphor for our current real-world situation. I’m just wondering how you would play it out — or turn it into a metaphor, go ahead.
