Several articles today on war in the Pacific. The first covers China’s strategic moves inside the US of A. American campuses are particularly vulnerable due to the Leftist Authoritarianism (but I repeat myself) of the college and university administrivialists; and the cultural, pseudo-intellectual Marxism of the Professariat. The problem for students starts sooner, but what has me scratching my head is the lack of intellectual curiosity. But hey, Google, which totes ain’t evil, is a thumb swipe away.
China’s strategic maneuvers focus on the economy and operational maneuvers in space. Recall what the US Navy did to the Confederacy. Everything after 1861 was just the South’s death-twitching. To have a manufacturing base, one needs raw materials, and China figured that out and is acting accordingly. It’s a race to see who’s vision controls the future, but fortunately for the Chinese, America is focused on white trucks blocking the cameras at Mar-a-lago, and whether or not the POTUS described Haiti in the most aromatic of terms.
What is a bona fide crapper is DoD’s finances. One strategic move that I expect will get tossed away in political chess is an overdue audit of DoD.
The last article discusses the tactics that North Korea could use against America and South Korea. These are not new tactics by any means. In WWI the Germans called these Stormtrooper tactics, and America saw similar in its many wars with the Indian nations. Still, the enemy has a vote. And so do those students mentioned above. Would our 17 Intelligence Agencies even know there’s a war? Education – our first strategic resource to win the Pacific.
