I love strategy. it’s something I’m genuinely good at.
looking at a map, North Korea finds itself framed by China and South Korea.
if Teddy Roosevelt were looking at the same map and faced with the choices we are today, I’m thinking he would essentially bitch-slap North Korea’s little sissy of a leader, Kim Jong Un.
that’s a tactical move. but, it sets-the-stage for a reasonable strategy.
and, it’s a bit contrary to my earlier post today, a Purposeful RESULT of Random Love. but, that just brings us back to Roosevelt and how some historical lessons are always relevant, as is my reference to my Dad below.
I’m thinking that China is massing on North Korea’s border (…wait… did you know that is what’s happening? it sure is) because they can’t take the chance that North Korea pisses off the United States enough to elicit a preëmptive strike that casts nuclear fall-out into China and South Korea. think about what Israel did with the Yom Kippur War in 1973. that would make for a Chinese interesting” forty-year anniversary.
more importantly, China takes Korea and ultimately puts them in the hands of South Korea making for a terrific and powerful trade-partner.
here’s an interesting angle… by reputation, some of the finest hackers hail from China, itself. so, if I’m a shadowy Chinese Central Communist Party member (for the record I’m not. I am in-fact, a Prudent and Optimistic Gentleman – look it up in this blogs archives), and I want to stir-the-pot and instigate change, I give the order to attack North Korea at its bitter black heart - their ridiculous parody of a leader, Kim Jong Un, himself. he apparently drives everything rampant through a run-away ego.
everything about the little sissy makes you want to bitch-slap him.
“…a picture posted Thursday on the North’s Flickr site shows Kim’s face with a pig-like snout and a drawing of Mickey Mouse on his chest. Underneath, the text reads: “Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons/Wasting money while his people starve to death.”
My Dad served in the United States Air Force under the Strategic Air Command (“Peace is our Profession”). he took détente seriously, and reasonably expected everyone else to do so as well. “Big planes with big bombs make other people think small”.
maybe the Chinese are gonna go “Roosevelt” on North Korea by speaking softly and use a big electronic stick.
is that poetic and justified irony?
they could call it the “Roosevelt Plan”. that would define irony.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
