三十六計/ San Shi Liu Ji – The Thirty six Stratagems Number 32

空城計/Kong Cheng Ji – Empty City Stratagem

原文:虛者虛之,疑中生疑;剛柔之際,奇而復奇。

Original Text: The weak displays his weakness, doubt within gives birth to doubt; along the border of Hard & Soft, strangeness gives rise to the wonderful.

解析:兵力虛弱卻更顯示出虛弱的樣子,使敵人加重疑惑;在敵強我弱的情況下,巧妙地運用這一策略就更加奇妙莫測。

Analysis: When your military strength is weak, to retreat put forth an appearance of even more weakness to cause the enemy serious doubt; in circumstances where the enemy is strong & I am weak, cleverly using this tactic can accomplish something more wonderful than you can imagine.
