The Moscow Rules a la the wiki:Assume nothing.Murphy is right.Never go against your gut; it is your operational antenna.Don't look back; you are never completely alone.Everyone is potentially under opposition control.Go with the flow, blend in.Vary your pattern and stay within your cover.Any operation can be aborted. If it feels wrong, it is wrong.Maintain a natural pace.Lull them into a sense of complacency.Build in opportunity, but use it sparingly.Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. (borrowed from Muhammad Ali, aka Cassius Clay.)Don't harass the opposition.There is no limit to a human being's ability to rationalize the truth.Technology will always let you down.Pick the time and place for action.Keep your options open.Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is an enemy action. (taken from Ian Fleming's novel Goldfinger)
