THE WOLF PACK
Looking below - the first 3 are the old or sick, they dictate the pace to the entire pack. If it was the other way round, they would be left behind, vulnerable and losing contact with the pack. In case of an ambush they would be sacrificed for the rest. Then come 5 strong ones, the front line to protect the old or the sick. In the center are the rest of the pack members - consisting of the young and she-wolves - then the 5 strongest following right behind for full protection. Last is alone, the alpha male. He controls everything from the rear. In that vantage position he can see everything, decide the direction of movement. He also sees all of the pack. The pack moves according to the elders pace and help each other, watch each other."

Moral lesson : Mankind must endeavour to adapt to "a wolf pack " strategy if it is to succeed in addressing its peculiar security problems in this 21st century. The strong must protect the weak and vulnerable.
