This definition raises some questions:
What would constitute a result suitable of a warrior?
And exactly what capabilites does the warrior require?
once the fight start, the result that allows the warrior to walk away instead of being carry away. and if the warrior cannot walk away then the other bugger won't either. walk away when he/she/it can, fight when must, kill when necessary, sacrifice when demand, eat when hungry, sleep when tire, party when hot chicks around.
as far as capabilities goes, i kinda like the marine approach. bomb you from the distance, then shell you, then shoot you with riffle, then pistol and grenade, then knife, then bite your ears off.
effective indicates goal(s) and result(s).
