As 'The Donald' will learn - er, he will learn, will he not? - this political lark is a damn sight more complicated than a really complicated thing! Poor Mr. Xi, the latter-day emperor of China, has two nutters to deal with as a matter of urgency. First there is 'Fat Boy Kim' who is hell bent on wrecking his toy cupboard as well as his country and, if necessary, the world. Then there is 'The Donald' who does totally unpredictable better than anyone. Of course, if Mr. Xi was as clever as he likes to pretend he is behind his inscrutable mask, he would have arranged a quiet assassination of 'Fat Boy' years ago and saved himself and his country and everyone else a lot of bother.
Alas, I suspect that Mr. Xi is not quite as secure in his presidential office as he might hope. His anti-American militarism no doubt pleases his General Staff who are almost certainly as stupid as most General Staffs throughout the ages, but letting a loon like 'Fat Boy' lead him by the nose is really dumb, and now that America is run by a man whose strategic decision-making is decided by which side of the bed he gets out from each morning leaves him in an all too real example of an 'unknown-unknown' situation! The Chinese are tremendous businessmen and so it is certain that Mr. Xi understands that the Chinese economy is balanced on one leg and any sort of major global explosion will bring it crashing down. If that happens, not only will the Generals be displeased but the 'People' (dread word!) will be incensed.
Er, have a nice day, y'all!
