S Korea US Raise Alert Level
So it begins the dangerous posturing of the cat and mouse game. The alert level of surveillance is raised, then the raised level of readiness, leaves canceled, bases fill with our soldiers, then they fill theirs, troops amassing on both sides of the boarders, who will flinch first? It does not matter, powder meet match. Everyone looses.
Obama states that we as a country are broke, the last thing we need is another war to fight. I am not saying that we would not be justified if N Korea moves first, but with our given economic position we may have no choice but to avoid conventional warfare and fight in a way that will not win approval from the world community. This is a big deal. We may have to strike first, hard, and fast. We will have to end this thing almost before it starts, the toll will be heavy on their military and civilians.
We loose either way. To save face we will have to make amends. How do we do that? As we have in the past, rebuild them, so either way conventional, or unconventional, we will take a hard economic hit. This is “The Mouse that Roared” scenario. We are weakened and they are strengthened economically. We might even see a similar situation like we have with Japan.
We have invented many things, many of which we no longer manufacture and Japan does. We will further upset the delicate balance of import, export, causing an ever widening gap in our GNP viability. We loose no matter how you cut it. I would not want to be in Obama’s shoes right now. I did not vote for him but I have compassion for his current situation. I also have a lot of advice for him, unfortunately right now it is making a lesser of evils decision but he must make a decision, because not taking action is making a decision that would be the most detrimental to the US and him. He cannot win as it stands right now, pre-damage control is his only option.
If you think I am wrong about “The Mouse that Roared” take a good hard look at the night satellite map. If we rebuild them there will be a whole lot more dots on that map, we will bring out of the third world like we did S Korea.
