One of the approaches which can be used in military conflicts is to engage one’s enemy on so many different fronts that the enemy is simply overwhelmed with information and the corresponding need to make decisions and act upon all that information. This works better as a tactic than a strategy because it tends to break down over time (that is, one cannot keep up the pace), but can be used to completely change the nature of the conflict.
