According to Sun Tzu author of "Art Of War" 
Attack by Strategem in regards to "Ethical Hacking" Training

"The general, unable to control his irritation, will launch his men to
the assault like swarming ants, with the result that one-third of his
men are slain, while the town still remains untaken.  Such are the
disastrous effects of a siege"
