A New Computer For The Army

 

Taiwan has succeeded in building a computer able to solve any strategic or tactical problem.

Military leaders are assembled in front of the new machine and instructed to feed a difficult tactical problem into it.

They describe a hypothetical situation to the computer and then ask the pivotal question: Attack or Retreat?

The computer hums away for an hour and then comes up with the answer:

YES.

The Taiwanese generals look at each other, somewhat stupefied.

Finally one of them submits a second request to the computer:

YES WHAT?

Instantly the computer responded:

YES SIR.
