So whats the difference between that and the realization that you screwed up in your initial deployment and now need more troops? Seems to me that both are learning from your mistakes, right?

I personally dont think either of them are flip floppers, I think it is more dangerous to stubbornly hold to an idea and not look at all the data available to you.
