Time to Erase a Pest from the Face of God's Green Earth

"Widely acknowledged as the two most important works on strategy and war, The Art of War by Sun Tzu and On War by Carl von Clausewitz have long been studied on a discrete basis, with the assumption that the theses they advanced were fundamentally at odds."

Indeed. One advocated force as a last resort, the other as a "last resort of diplomacy." I'll let you, dear reader, decide which is which.


Jebbus christie. Has it not long since been time to destroy the next long-range missile, "the Dongers" or whatever they call it, right there on the launch pad? Say nothing to anyone, ally or enemy: simply blow it away via B2 Stealth Bomber cruise missile or other non-obvious means. That would take about 36 hours, direct flight from the jet's base in Whiteman, Missouri.

(There was talk, a few years ago, about a U.S. hypersonic military vehicle that could project non-nuclear force globally in hours, not days, but I don't follow skunkworks projects closely enough to know if that's deployed as-yet, or even off the drawing board.)

I'd love to see what the fat little freak in North Korea said or did about it, to the UN or otherwise, en route to the "Glorious People's Revolution against Revisionists" or similar gibberish. Answer, of course, is "nothing" other than bomb a few more islands or sink more ROK patrol boats. Then, should he try it again, destroy the next missile as-well but escalate: reduce the entire launch complex to smoldering rubble. Etc.

If there is "anxiety," RE comments in the quoted article, note that military force and action, or credible threat of-same, are sometimes the best and only way to deal with psychopaths and barbarians. Not unlike the Soviet Union and China of old, something Presidents Eisenhower through George Herbert Walker Bush understood well. After that, we lost our vision, will, and ability to long-range plan.
