> nice guys always lose.

Nice guys are boring. All they want to do is treat a girl right and
give her the world. (and become obsessive control freaks because they
can't stand the idea of losing the only girl that was ever nice to them.)

Not until someone noticed that "targets of opportunity" missions, i.e.,
ones that came up at the last minute, before they could brief the ARVN
general who was part of the planning cell, seemed to go without any
problems. A secretary assigned to the ARVN side of the joint staff was
passing on the information to the VC and NVA.
