What can we do in this deadly moment ?

*Leechard

Only a few  have noticed that the moment right now is deadly. If nuclear wars burst out in Asia, all will face a tremendous change. Many will die, and more will have to face a difficult social and environment pressure. 

Human is a very curious animal. Human can hardly change anything without a big pressure presents. All the books and theories and ideas are useless in peaceful moment. Until one day the explosion happens, then people will start to think, and only by that time, people will  read. 
 
What can we do in this deadly moment?

Nothing.

What is the most important line Trump has said today (2017.4.27)?

*Leechard

According to BBC :

In a wide-ranging interview inside the Oval Office, Mr. Trump praised China's President Xi Jinping for his handling of North Korea, calling him "A very good man" who loved his country. 

He said Mr. Xi "certainly doesn't want to see turmoil and death."

"He is a very good man and I got to know him very well, " he said.

"He loves China and he loves the people of China. I know he would like to be able to do something, perhaps it's possible that he can't." 

The most important line is the last line. Trump had said, "it's possible that he can't."

President Xi wants to accomplish something. But it's possible that he can't. It's the idea of Mr. Trump. And it is the leaking of his thoughts; one can always enter from here to reach his inner setup. 

We hope Mr. Trump could tell us why. Why did he think that is impossible.

What is wrong with a mixed signal?

                             *Leechard

Only external people use signals to judge, and guide their action.

If you see a mixed signal on the street, both the green and red lights were on. You can judge them by the actual traffic situation. 

In cases of politics and foreign affairs, signal could only be a not important reference. 

The important things are always internal. 

For example, North Korea is external. It's the external reflection of China. If you wish to study the Korean Situation, you ought to see into the internal affairs. Before you can see deeply into the internal conflicts in China, any study about North Korea is in vain. 

Before an external war, there is always an internal war pending.

Will the US use nuclear against North Korea ?

                           *Leechard

It is very unlikely for the US to use nuclear bomb against North Korea, even if it was bombed with some nuclear device by the North Korea.

Point One:

Is it possible for North Koreans use nuclear weapon against the US?

There is always a possibility. To deny it is not wise. If they are not using it today, they will use it tomorrow, or next year. So to snub the cigarette end is priority. 

Point Two:

Will the US retaliate with nuclear weapon?

May be not this time. The enemies may throw one or two nuclear weapons, but it will not be like gunfire exchange. The US needs to think of the next step. If they can eliminate the enemy leaders they will do it. If the leaders are not located, then they will use other means to locate him. They will not burn the whole country into radioactive ashes but not finding their leader.

Point Three:

Are ground forces needed? 

The best choice is to use the Chinese army as ground force. North Korea is not like Middle East. There is no rebel army. And the South Korean is reluctant to fight, or simply too weak in their will to fight. There will be an endless nightmare if the South Korean were fighting against the North. They will keep losing and retreating, same as the South Vietnam situation. 

To bring in the Chinese needed wisdom. The US has had so many talented people in the Government; they knew how to do it.

What is the most difficult part in the Korea Situation ?

                             *Leechard


It is a burning cigarette end near the gas station. Any one nearby would like to snub it off before it ignites something.

Here come two guys who want to handle it. 

One said snub it off.

The other said don't. 

China was giving a mixed signal. It seemed doing two things. It protected the North  while kicked the South.   

And it tells the US to stop.

What if the US takes any action? 

It is almost sure China will not action. 

China will only use rhetoric to handle the case, unless it was also bombed by the North Korea. 

Its signal was clear.

Why dont China let the US beat North Korea ?

                       *Leechard

What the Chinese have been doing is very different from their traditional wisdom. 

The traditional way is using one stone to kill two birds. 

If China let the US beat North Korea, both of them will get hurt. And China could come amid the turmoil and have a good harvest. 

But China had chosen not to do that. 

Why?

If Trump could one day understood all this, he will be great.

What is wrong to underestimate something ?

                       *Leechard


Another ancient Chinese wisdom:  You should never underestimate the very young though you can always bully the very old.

And we can change that:  You should never underestimate science and technology though you can always neglect literature and history. 

This is a rather subtle subject. As for me, I will never neglect literature and history, as these are the real causes of politics. 

However, science and technology can be very dangerous. Do not underestimate them. 

Is it possible to hide a nuclear device somewhere in New York or Boston or Washington? The North Koreans would detonate them whenever they feel like to do so?

Or hide some war chemical devices and ignite them? 

The scientists in US should have done their homework long ago. And their opinions are very unlikely.   

But what if it was underestimated? 

The Koreans had links to Malaysia long ago. And Malaysia is a place to link up US.  They must have used that connection to send things and people into the US. Is it possible? 

All of the above sound absurd. But is it possible that one day, the absurd will become reality?  

And the rest is the North Korean Army. It was said that they have reached 1 million. And this figure is not to be neglected. Is there an absolute way to stop them entering South Korea? Have the Americans produced enough robots to combat them?  

Xi and Trump must have known all of the above. They must have discussed them.

Why can't you keep a tiger at home?

                             *Leechard

Tiger cannot be raised at home like pets. It's the ancient wisdom of China. If you keep a tiger at home, the tiger will be a disaster to you. 

Now, North Korea seems to be a pet tiger for China. No one understands why. As time goes by, disaster is bound to happen. But the Chinese seems not aware of it. They had determined to keep the tiger. 

There must be a reason behind, if you believe the Chinese is smart and believe that they must have other considerations. Or else they are foolish.

What could be that very reason? 

Is the American threat real? 

Do the Chinese really afraid to have America as a neighbor?

I do not think it is a good reason to keep a pet tiger.

How did a fairy tale of Princess Diana turn ugly?

                          *Leechard


Fairy Tales are of utmost importance in human life. They give us wisdom and beauty and hope. 

At a certain day in July 1981, I happened to be in London and witnessed the grand marriage of the Prince and the Princess. I was very excited by that time. 

And time is somewhat similar to space. 

Distance makes differences. The longer the time, the farther the space, keep you away from the gossip, and you are a step nearer to the true facts.

I was in Hong Kong several decades after the marriage. I heard little about the gossips. May be I had avoided them. All that happened in my mind was a good fairy tale .The Prince and the Princess finally got married and they were living happily ever after.

And fairy tales are very important. They were real hopes.  

If by one day, even the fairy tales cannot exist anymore, you wonder, what had actually happened in our ugly life. 

By the year 1997, the Princess was dead.

And the fairy tale was broken. It cannot exit in the hearts of modern people. 
Truth was disappeared.

All sorts of grief and all sorts of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to cover from every angle.  

So the fairy tale is dead. 

And this is the modern world. It is just like that.  All are realities and no fairy tales.

Can I do away sad feelings in a song?

  *Leechard


Some times I feel sad. I can never shake off my sad feelings. I started to write songs a couple of years ago. But it only brought in more sad feelings. As I am a poor songwriter and I cannot afford to hire good singers to sing the songs. 

Here is one of my song



Sad Sad Maria

(1)
Whatever I saw in the dark evening
It must be something coming inside my heart
Whenever I try to see
Darkness covers all
I couldn't see any light

You are the only power in my mind
Without you I couldn't go anywhere

Oh my dear Maria
There must be some more light

Light
So bright

Run over countries countries somewhere somewhere
It could be too long to wait
 

(2)
Whatever I saw in the dark evening

Oh my dear Maria
There must be some more light

Run over books and books somewhere somewhere

What is the nature of a nuclear crisis?

                          *Leechard


It happens in the gaps of powers.

If there are no gaps, then there will be no crisis. 

The world is composed by powers. The major powers to day are that of the US, Russia, and China.

These powers are like huge plates of earth. They are crushing each other every day.

And that produces gaps. 

And the gaps let the unwanted items grow, like the extreme religion and now, the nuclear crisis.

Why are they crushing each other? 

Because they have different aims. 

They are not moving in the same direction.

From this understanding, one could find the solution to the nuclear crisis. 

One is to have a similar direction for all the powers. 

Two is to get together to work out a plan.

Three is to take the steps slowly. 

Put the poisonous frog into some warm water. Do not boil it.

Why can't the Chinese make more money in the business of Chinese Medicine?

                             *Leechard


Chinese culture is very much not the same as American culture. Chinese culture had been trapped into a paradigm that the Chinese themselves may not be well aware of. 

I have explained the matter in detail in my Chinese book: "Who will be rich tomorrow". However, book stores are not willing to sell that book, it is not known among the Chinese readers, though the issue is extremely important that the Chinese can get rich quickly if they can adopt themselves into a new paradigm. 

America is a nation of invention. Almost all important items were invented by the Americans. From self-drive cars to mobiles, all the inventions are now commercially salable products. 

China had their own advantage points. They are a nation of right brains. They can see things in a whole picture that the Western scholars can seldom see the same. Medicine is a good example. The Chinese Medicine can treat a patient from an angle that their Western counterparts can never think of. 

However, Chinese medicine is having a very slow progress. They had not been able to fully discover the theory of the Chinese medicine. If they can put in more effort, the Chinese medicine will be salable to the whole world. Because it is effective, and it is cheap. If the American Government can choose Chinese medicine, the Obama care will be a lot easier to manage. 

The Chinese put every thing in the frame of moral to consider. Even today, when they discover the Western method is so important, such as the ability to seek knowledge or the ability to communicate etc., they just write it down as a moral doctrine and make pupils to memorize it. 

They have not been able to discover the inner beauty of the Chinese medicine or the real nature of the Chinese medicine. Why do such and such an acupuncture point can heal such and such a disease? There is no answer always. 

The frame of morality has been the major obstruction. But they don't know it.

Who is a good learner in politics?

Many are just bureaucrats.

 Bureaucrats need not learning. They have a steady path to walk on.  Obama was one. He seemed to have known all. He never needed learning anything new.  

There was one very good learner in history. He was Peter the Great. He had disguise as a workman to work in a European ship company to learn the Western skills. But he was not a really good learner. Because he did not like abstract thoughts. He never liked theories and may be he did not  like reading. If he had read more, Russia will be number one  today. 

Donald Trump is another good learner. It is too early yet to say he is really good or not. But he is surely not a bureaucrat.  He learns and he changes. 

I do hope he is more then a learner. If he had learned something and suited himself into the old path, then he would be a successor to the bureaucrats only. 

I hope he can be an achiever. He can bring the United States and the world into a better place.

Why cant the Chinese make more money in the business of Chinese Medicine

Until now, Chinese Medicine cannot replace western medicine. Only a small part ot the Chinese medicine is useful to some people.

However, the study of Chinese Medicine is too slow to develop............

Can Bombs kill terrorism ?

Please note that the title of todays article is "Can Bombs kill terrorism". 

And the vital point is "terrorism" not "terrorist". 

If the reader of this article is smart enough, we don't have to write on. The message is already clear.

Every one with some senses should know, bombs can kill terrorist but not terrorism. 

You need to pay a price in order to get every thing done.  

If you only wish to finish the job from the high air, smart people can know quickly:

The job is never done. 

Can bombs kill terrorism? 

The answer is no.  And you don't have to wait for that answer from me. You knew it already.

Who would take care of cultural matters ?

First is that you must know what is going on. 

For example, terrorism or moneyism is the two most important issues in the world. Most of the politicians use much of their time and money to handle these two issues. 

How to make money and how to keep yourself safe? 

John is a toilet cleaner. He works hard. He enjoys his job. He cleans and cleans and cleans. But the toilet is never clean. 

Good politicians are the same. They try to make the country rich, and they try to keep the country safe. He works and works and works. Until one day he retires, and he found he had done nothing. 

He had never been aware of the culture matters. 

He had never known that culture is such a big thing that it can mold the nations, or, keep the toilets uncleanable. 

Of all the good politicians, Helmut Schmidt is one of them. He was a German statesman. He died at 2015.

What should be done to eliminate hatred?


Terrorism is the fruit of hatred. People love that fruit. When people cannot understand why things happened in a manner they do not like, they choose hate. 

Many politicians knew deeply the usage of hate. People will listen to blaming and condemning more then reasoning. You raise a fist and people follow.

Hatred doesn't come from nowhere. There must be some reason for hatred.  

You have to settle the disputes first.

That is why there must be a 1:10 arrangement. Each dollar spent on the military, 10 times of other effort should be done.

A peaceful world would make every one happy. 

And now the next question is:  Where do we have the money? 

Is there a way to make money first? 

Yes there is.

How much money should be used on the Middle East?

Each of the Tomahawk missile costs about 1 million. The total operation of the bombing at the Syria target would cost more than 59 million dollars. 

But the point is the purpose. What is the purpose of the military action?

Should it be to the final defeat of the so-called IS?

And there might be other considerations. What if IS is defeated?  Will there be new form of terrorists? 

Will there be other organizations arose and replaced the defeated IS?

The purpose of the action in Middle East should be two-dimensional:  one is to eliminate hatred; other is to settle disputes in different paradigms.

Each dollar used on battlefield, should be backup 10 times in other field, such as medicine, education, economy, and even entertainment. That is a very   basic global cost. 

The ultimate goal should not be defeating terrorists only. It should be eliminating hatred. 

Can the Americans defeat IS? Maybe. Will there be other forms of terrorist after the IS?

The answer is positive.  

How much money should be used on the Middle East?  The answer is 1 to 10. For each dollar used on the military, 10 times should be on other field.

Are the Russians 'complicit' or 'incompetent' ?

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on a CBS program Face the Nation, Russia was either complicit or incompetent to prevent the Syrian Government use chemical weapons on a rebel-held town in Syria.  

Were the Russians incompetent to control the Syrian Government? Or they were part of the plot to use chemical weapons? 

Mr. Tillerson said, or they got outwitted. That meant he did not believe the Russian was the one to choose chemical weapons. He thought the Russians were just incompetent. 

But it might also be a problem of different paradigms. 

The Russians were not in the same mindset with the Americans.

If they are in the same mindset, the problem must have been solved already.

And there will not be problems of the IS either. 

Different mindset brought in the different approach. Why did the Syrian Government choose to use the deadly gas? Do they have other options? 

Many terrorists prefer to die to throw out a bomb. And the Syrians prefer to use gas. It is completely different thoughts and paradigms. If the Russians and Americans do wish to solve the problem in the Middle East, they have to think from the inner side of the whole problem. They were not tough enough to handle the issues. If they were tough enough, they will dig deeper into it.

A genius is like a child. He would act like a child. And a child is someone who could use his mind. 

A child is quick. A child is always quicker then any politician. A politician has too much worry, too much pride, and too many considerations.

Are wars controllable?

Are wars controllable? People always doubt it.

Only the best war genius knows how to control a war. They knew it deeply that if something happens and the war has become uncontrollable, there will be the time of final defeat, or eternal ruin.

The secret is in the mind. 

Or how the average people judge you.

In the past, human hands controlled war. Now, it seems that human is not so important. They have lots of war tools. So people had forgotten the mind.

What is the nature of the Syria War?

No matter people admit it or not, it is the war between United States and Russia. 

It is funny yet it is true.

If the world has truly evolved into the time of softness, then the struggle for hard interest is absurd.

Does America need the hard interest from Syria? It is very difficult to conceive the inner scenario. How can people be involved in wars but cannot produce a reason? 

There are no real conflict of interest between Russia and America. Yet it happens to have a war.

why should China and America be friendly?


It is because the issue they are fighting each other is gone. It had become not important.

The issue is the hard interests.

The so-called hard interests are land, resources, markets, etc. 

But this is a time of softness.

Soft interest is far more important. 

Almost all important inventions were by America. From early Thomas Edison electricity to the new electric car, it seems that the newly invented American products will occupy the markets automatically. It needs no promotion and political interference. It would keep growing. 

It is a time of Softness. It is not a time of Hardness. 

It makes the core of the US-China friendship.

It is because that hard interest is not so important now.

How much they felt it necessary to make the talk successful.

If the wish is strong , then one thing is necessary. Without it, the talk will not be successful. 

That is honest.

If both parties can be honest to each other, there will  be success.

But honest is very difficult. It is not easy to be honest.

It sounds true and it brings resentment. However, it is wrong. 

Yes we can change the world. Just switch the mindset into 'we'. If we cannot change the world, we will be destroyed. Like if we cannot defeat terrorism, terrorism will destroy us, or make every one their slave.

what is culture complex?

A complex is NOT when every body is thinking the same. I said yesterday that a complex is when every one shares the same thought, but it needs more elaboration.

There might be individual thoughts in every culture. Some agree and some disagree. A complex is when a major issue becomes the only concern, than there will be no other issue. 

Moral in China is an example.

When the issue of moral arises, all other issue was forgotten. Moral had become the dominant issue. Every other issue served the main issue, though the people living under such dominant thought might choose to be immoral as the opposite of thought was bound to happen simultaneously. 

However, no matter one is moral or not moral, there will be the only horizontal plain for him to rest his mind. He is supposed to think only in the plain. He may choose to be different, but it will be painful and lonely. He can hardly change anything, though sometimes he is the only hope.

What is wrong with culture complex?

There are different culture complexes. 

A complex is when every body is thinking the same. 

If every one thinks commerce is the only means to save Europe, there will not be other means. 

The same is desire in India, moral in China. 

Moral, Desire and Commerce are not wrong. But if all thoughts are trapped inside, there will be big problem.
