Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

The Chinese Puzzle

The question of the day, is North Korea the surraget provocatur for China? If China remains so bold as to wage cyber warfare against our banks, technology firms and government, would they not strategically seek to destroy us by provoking us into a no win conflict with Korea? I was around during the first Korean War. When we pushed North Korea well to the north, China came to their aid massively. North Korean rhetoric makes sense if egged on by China with a promise of backup. Such a promise might be disingenuous as well as China sits back and pleads innosence -- while we drain our resources pleading for their help. China and Korea both follow Sun Tzu's Art of War. We should think long and hard before committing any moves in a no win scenario.
