遠交近攻/Yuan Jiao Jin Gong – Befriend the Far, Attack the Near

原文:形禁勢格,利從近取,害以遠隔。上火下澤。

Original Text: If your formation is restricted & momentum hindered, it is advantageous to take what is near, thereby keeping harm at a distance. Fire above, a pool below. 

解析:當作戰目標受地理條件所限時,攻打近敵有利,攻打遠敵有害。對遠隔的敵人,如有利於已,也可以暫時聯合。

Analysis: When your combat objectives are limited by geographical conditions, attacking a nearby enemy is advantageous while attacking a distant enemy is harmful. Oppose a distant enemy later can be advantageous, as it is possible to form a temporary alliance
