China pleased after watching U.S. wargames

 

 

As with The Soviet Union before, our primary goal in contact with China, from a military standpoint, is to prevent an armed conflict, not attempt to gain an advantage. I believe that the thought process is that in an armed conflict between two superpowers, win, lose or draw, nobody is going to be better off after the conflict, than before the conflict.

 

International diplomacy between two superpowers is a delicate balance between openness and secrecy, you try to convince the other side that you do not want to fight, and will be reasonable in your efforts to avoid conflict, while at the same time, making sure that they understand, that push comes to shove, you will defend yourself, and make sure that any gain they might obtain from military aggression, will be outweighed by the pain they will receive.

 

Complete secrecy leads to paranoia, last thing you want is paranoia leading a superpower.

 

The difference between this and the big game, it is pretty rare in the big game, for either side to suffer any deaths.
