Getting Out Sun Tzu’s Way

August 25, 2010

I have a suggestion for ending the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. 

Let Sun Tzu fight both wars his way.

That can be accomplished by telling China they may have all the oil in Iraq and the rare minerals recently discovered in Afghanistan.

Then the US pulls its troops out of both countries within six months leaving the door open for China to move in.

Why would China do this?  China needs oil and these rare minerals to keep its economy growing.

Why would it work?  Sun Tzu was Chinese. Who better to understand his rules for winning wars. China might even be able to pull it off without firing a shot.

This would work because China is not burdened with America’s affliction–Political Correctness, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, the Tea Bag People, liberal bleeding hearts and hawkish neoconservatives who scare American politicians so much that America’s generals are not allowed to fight as a war should be fought.
