Making use of epistemic logic it is provable that whenever the
smallest uncertainty of message delivery is present, common knowledge
via communication is impossible. This implies that a coordinated
attack, which demands common knowledge, really can never take
place. But there might be possibilities for a coordinated attack when
you drop the demand of common knowledge and have a look at the
probabilities of proper message delivery. A tentative start is made to
develop a theory to explore this.
