The Sun-Tzu Also Rises
How hard has the US been Sun-Tzu’d on Syria?
We’ve blundered our way into a precarious situation through no fault but that of the people who are supposed to prevent such things. We now have no easy way out, all choices at this point lead to pain.
If a fool leads into the woods and gets lost what makes you think he can get you out? He doesn’t even know he’s lost until well after its been a pretty well determined fact.
It seems the only way out of a bad situation is for it to get worse. At that point the matter is simplified and even a fool should be able to see that a cornered animal only has one choice. If we make the wrong choice now we’ll be making that only choice later.
