Our seventh principle is leave a vulnerability unprotected. The strategy is to expose an obvious target to your adversary to make it appear your camp is undefended. Why: who wouldn’t walk into an unguarded camp? Now, as it has been with some of the earlier lessons, this too may seem a little counterintuitive at first; after all, Sun Tzu said, “You can ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked” (VI.7). If you leave a vulnerability unprotected, how can you possibly ensure the safety of your defense? Wouldn’t you be handing your opponent a victory? Well, not necessarily. The first half of what Sun Tzu says about this, missing from the above quote, is this: “You can ensure the success of your attacks only if you attack undefended places” (VI.7).
