I see several critical shortcomings in their strategy, if you can call it that. To restate that strategy, it’s two fold: leave our country, or get killed.
I’ll start out by making some analogies. If you’re building a house, you start with a… building blueprint. If you’re starting a business, you start with a… business plan. If you’re conducting an operation, you start with the… planning phase of the mission. (And mission analysis soon follows.) Call me crazy but I like to measure twice and cut once. I don’t like to get halfway through a project, and realize that I have to go back to a previous step because I failed to plan (proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance), or realize that I have to start all over because I screwed it up royally. I’d like to enjoy the cake I bake the first go around.
I really feel like I’m pointing out the obvious here. Here are my objections, in summary.

Having no plan is a plan to fail.
