(Part one) Killing with a borrowed knife

Wiseman: "If you want to do something,
                  make your opponent do it for you".

Borrowing a knife to kill means making use of others' resources for one's own gain--meaning that, if you can cause someone else to do a difficult job for you, it will certainly save yourself a great deal of trouble.

The king of Zhen (722 - 481 B.C) employed the "Killing with a borrowed knife" strategy to pave the way for an invasion of state of *Kuai.

King of Zhen first prepared a list of names of wise officials and brave generals of *Kuai with description of rewards they would receive should *Kuai fall.

The king of Zhen then secretly made sure that the spies from the king of *Kuai got to know of the hidden list.

The king *Kuai manage to obtain the list and suspect those on it of plotting against him and executed every one of them. Shortly thereafter, the king of Zhen conquered *Kuai.
