On Obliging Local Powers To Fight their Own Corner
by B “H Kissinger” Wook
This piece is about the possible management (NB) of regional conflict — by obliging local powers to fight their own corner.
The writer, too, is pretty thorough about setting forth the different ways “balance of powers” in regional terms can be achieved by superintending (NB) so-called “great powers”.
The writer also alludes Turkey’s possible role in the present ME situation in terms of Turkish interests; this is interesting to me as the late Edward, Baron Rom, & I often discussed the sotadic predisposition of “those Toorks,” their enduring need for tributary lands & peoples to supply the necessary yearly drafts of catamites & the possibility, therefore, of a renewed Turkish caliphate ALSO to sit hard on ALL of these fool Semites!
In any case, I’ve signed on for this outfit’s weekly reports as this example certainly is interesting & in it the writer shows a sure grasp of the question above all of the DIFFERENT means by which to realize any “great power” strategy.
(There IS a larger issue, too, namely of ANY state’s ‘total strategy’, not only for military success, but for financial as well; English historian Correlli Barnett as far as I know is the first scholar to define & discuss ‘total strategy’, and, Barnett likewise has dissected the collapse of ‘British’ power because of the English post-WW II lack of anything like a perception of THE need to think, plan & act in a THOROUGHLY strategic manner.
(Barnett conducts his analysis with devastating salience in his four [!] books on the subject.
(And these, in fact, ARE a must-read series for anyone interested in seeing how close America may be today to the edge of the cliff of History — paradoxically enough because of 20th century American historical success & OUR consequent political loss of any meaningful longterm perspective over the course of an entire frivolous & pampered, idiot generation!)
