Of course you figure the odds, perhaps not to the second decimal point but you spend time to see if you have "enough" to be successful. The bible even says it is a good thing so not unethical-

"Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace." from Luke 14

I've always thought that its somehow unethical to work out the odds before committing to an attack. Of course one has a vague idea, eg the veterans will likely beat the raw unit, but to calculate the percentages seems dreary.
Do you agree?
