Now that there are at least 6 parties to the Korean denuclearization and peace talks, and no consensus is forthcoming, while on the other hand, war seems ever more likely to occur any day, the complexity of the dynamics of such a multi-player game can be disorienting. But the end result is really simple. If one wishes to win, he must remain intact up to the second to the last round. By the same logic, to win the place in the second to the last round, he must remain intact up to the third to the last round. And so forth, resulting in the obvious conclusion that he must remain intact now, and in the next round, and in the next, next round, et cetera. |
In short, avoidance of being in a position where one has to be at war, except in the last round, is the only winning strategy.
To achieve this result, however, requires a degree of humility and self-discipline that may prove to be the Achilles Heel of all but the last two contestants. This Gordian Knot, therefore, can only be solved by a determination to be at peace with every power, and to remain capable of defeating any other power at the same time. Blessed are the meek, indeed, for they shall inherit the earth. This is not just an exhortation. It is the key to survival.
