The War Dictum

Politics is war with no Blood
I'll be bringt you to The two most important definition about war:

  1. War is merely a continuation of politics with other means - [Clausewitz's]
  2. Peace is a continuation of war by other means - [Vo Nguyen Giap]

Both Dictum is not a statement of fact as we read it; It is the antithesis in a dialectical argument whose thesis is the point. The time difference about 150 years, and it have changes almost everithings so some said it was mutation meaning of war.
Bei combining both dictum with dictum "Politics is war with no Blood", we will came in kinds of new-dimension-of-war which we introducted for Absolut Destructive Weapon like Nuke and called it latter as detterence or detente.

Giap these made the difference of War or Peace becoming meaningless/absurds; probably he said it because he was on time to lose the war and have no more supply logistic from Russian or China; it was happened on 1973.
For rememberance:
1954 - Dien Bien Phu fifty-six days
1968 - Tets Offensive 15,000 tons of bombs were dropped on the two cities.
1971 - Lao war
1972 - falls war
Actually he never have Victory after Dien Bien Phu and Rand Computer have calculated he juat have armor only for 2 months; but he have decided to go to "peace table" and he act there as Hero and it made Nixon become very ashame.

War could be winning not only by Blood And Steel, but it could also made by kind of Metaphisic War not Phisical War.

There is also what we know as "ripening the Aple" which actually works perfectly in NAZI time as they take over Austria and Checkoslovakia, no single bullets is used. Other cases is the India-Pakistani war which India made Pakistan became angry and waiting for their attack then they got sympathy from the World for their counter attackt.
What we want to fighting the terrorism could be indanger, if we do like The Three Musketeers did in Iraq and afghan.

The Three Musketeers have forget the ground principla of making War :"Cause; Reason and Chance"; the invation reason is to premature and have also not exit strategy, thought they allready have Sadam and Bagdad, they have forget it Just War Ethic.
The readable same old story about Premature Ejaculation of the Three Musketeers could be read in NY times.
