Politics: What Would Sun Tzu Say About America Current Politics, if He Were Alive Today….

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

” Strange things can happen, but America current politics is out of whack in terms of country future”……..Sun Tzu.

Try to read over his contents of The Art of War and find out what he means.

The Iraq and Afghan wars are absolutely against his military operation concepts such as long time war,… can’t withdraw fast…..underestimate the enemy …..most of all, the war was based ambiguous information…….However, stopping the terrorist activity is a significant operation, but the cost is huge.

The consequence of these wars has exhausted America resources and creates thousand of broken families. Many wounded soldiers and dead hero are on daily news.

It has been four years, the gridlock of Congress and incumbent continues…..It is beyond imagination.

The Banghazi hearing continues.  It is sad to see few Americans lost their life. The risk of the job is well understood…..If Congress really care American life, the ambiguous war should be reviewed. Don’t attack another country without thoroughly understanding the circumstance and consequence.

The confirmation hearing: The Secretary of Defense is delayed to confirm, because of his past statement about one of the Ally and his opinion about how to deal with Iran….Congress can give their advise and opinion to the President, but President has the right to choose his Cabin to run for the country. It is political obstruction.

Sun Tzu: Know nothing about the military and interfere the military policy, it will lead to get defeated…

The gun control: Gun is the tools to kill people. The incivility of society is due to the economy downturn and the frustration of civilians about current America politics. look at the history !!

The drug war is the most important factor. The drugs screw human brains. Used to be drugs were imported, now they are even home grown. It has been 30 years to fight drug war…Well,  what is the result? Look at the Mexican border, drugs and guns are identical brother and sister.

Immigration reform: Reform the immigration law is correct. Because America is a immigrant country. However, if the purpose is for the future voters and votes instead of building the future of America, it will create a divided country…….It is for sure.

Education: Spend B of B dollars on education system, but don’t pay quality teachers, political people expect high quality students coming out…. Go to buy the lottery ticket!  It is political agenda problem.

Military wasted weapon: America has huge debts, but still keeps building the wasted weapons. America should use this money to take care the vet and wounded soldiers…..Navy Seal is echoing.

Health expense:  Check the hospital bills. Even the blinds can see the over charge. Insurance companies raise the premium, because they lose money. Look at their assets, they grow like ‘Fungus’ each year. That means they don’t lose money.

Sun Tzu: The image.

America has the image problem from inside out. It is not the time of WWll and cold war period…..People in power should seriously review the current global situation.

Sun Tzu: Know the Circumstance.

America has most deadly weapons, but only the weapons can’t lead the world…..The positive IMAGE,  ‘Fairness, Justice, Mutual Respect ‘  combines with the powerful weapons and build up the true ally then the world will be peaceful and prosperous………

It is a mistake to push another issue instead of working with Congress. Without the cooperation of Congress, this country will go nowhere. Incumbent should friendly use his winning situation and approach to Congress…..Easy the tension. It is The  Country, not just The Party…….Don’t stretch the power too thin.

Sun Tzu: Don’t force the defeated adversary to fight, show your mercy and make them humble. They are in your backyard…….

Sun Tzu: War is the last resource to stop the disaster conflict…

It means that the variables should try anything and mean of ways to solve the conflict. When all possibilities of peaceful conditions are exhausted.  The war plan then takes place.

As Sun Tzu has said, WAR is a serious business, it can’t take lightly in every possible situation.

CNN: US will talk to Iran directly. It is a significant move in terms of political game. If the purpose is for Peace, then this direct negotiation should take place.  Before it happens, all information are through the third party, US never has first hand information. That may yield a serious mistake and the collateral damage will be heavy.

America is a global leader, it should maintain the attitude of fairness and justice . The right of ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ should be granted.

Sun Tzu: Let your adversary recognizes the advantage and disadvantage of the treaty, what will be the consequence, if they don’t cooperate. Then show the military power… The fear will make them humble….

Iran doesn’t want to war with America. The short statement of its leader few months ago was very clear.  However, America negotiator has to put their culture as a conditional element…..

It is no doubt that Iran has the intention to build Nuclear Weapons in the near future. US may grant them to make an explanation during the meeting. It is the proper way to handle the international affair. Restore America’s Image.

America has the most Mighty Weapons on earth, but it can’t fight every conflict of the world. Even it can, America and Americans will be deadly exhausted in the unknown future. The Libya and Turkey attacks are the beginning. It is the IMAGE to stop all the Devil.

Sun Tzu: You want to stop  the problem of bandits, take their leader away.

The sanction is making progress, it will succeed, if the time is allowed. However,Iran has two key players behind them. There is no telling how long it will take.

If the purpose is for peace, the ego should be off from the table. Mutual  respect is a must. Put America benefit as a priority.

America is facing an internal war.

If the purpose is for the prosperity of this country. Negotiation and cooperation are a good idea. The incumbent just wins a fiscal battle. A new approach to Congress should take place.

Don’t stretch your power too thin. Take care the economy first. Don’t forget that the success of your second term, it is because of the citizens are on your side. If they are continuously suffering, once they are back away from you, your planning glorious record of America history will be changed…..

Sun Tzu: Wise people not only see the Sun and Moon……they see the things, most of people don’t see…
