Professor Edward Luttwak, USA:

Senior Associate, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington; Chairman of the Board, AP Fleet; President, Servicios Amazonas. Author: Strategy: the Logic of War and Peace (1987/2002), The Grand Strategy of the Roman Empire (1976); The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire (2009).
 
Thinking Strategically
No, it is not common sense, because strategy is governed by the paradoxical logic of conflict, which prohibits linear solutions. The famous phrase "if you want peace prepare war" is only one example of the paradoxical logic that pervades every aspect of war and peace, from the lowest level  of tactics to grand strategy.
