Scott Sulivan: Obama's five steps to global security
A Five-step plan for Obama for achieving Global Security is explained in detail below. Obama can realize four major economic and security gains from implementing this plan.
First, President Obama can use the Asia-Pacific Security Forum (an annual meeting) to deter a likely Japanese attack on North Korea and possibly on South Korea as well.
Second, President Obama can organize an Asia-Pacific Security Forum to deter a possible Pakistani nuclear attack on India or Afghanistan.
Third, once President Obama has begun to implement his Asia Pacific Security initiative, he can then accelerate his diplomatic efforts in the Middle East to support the Palestinians, Syrians, Iraqis, Saudis, Libyans, Algerians, Egyptians, and Sudanese. Obama's efforts in these states will consist of damage control and recovery from his own previous economic initiatives, while restraining the Iranians and the Kurds.
Fourth, Obama is also likely to see this initiative restore investor confidence in his leadership, which will accelerate Obama's economic recovery at home and abroad.
Here are the details of President Obama's plan to for Asian-Pacific and global security.
Step One. Obama will ask Russia and China to join the US investigation into Japanese accidents with its nuclear energy program, or possible Japanese nuclear accidents during the course of Japan's confrontations with North Korea. Obama will use these Japanese accidents as the basis for his call for the US, Russia and China to review and, if necessary, revise the post-WW II agreements on Japanese nuclear security.
Step Two. Obama can deter Japan from attacking North and South Korea by encouraging Korean unification and by opening North Korean enterprise zones to foreign investors. North Korea would accelerate projects that would boost investment in both Koreas from Japan, China, the US, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia, and New Zealand. No longer would the threat of Japanese nuclear attack hang over their heads. With this threat gone, North Korea should return to normal status.
Step Three, Obama can deter war between China and Taiwan by reaffirming Nixon's formulation committing Taiwan and Beijing to the acceptance of a single China -- an arrangement that appears to be the only basis for Chinese unification.
Step Four. Obama can use the Asia-Pacific forum to deter the Pakistan/Iran Axis. In alignment with Obama in a Pakistan/Iran containment policy will be Russia, India, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and most Arab states. The good news on Afghanistan is that President Karzai – bless his soul – has already set the stage for a surprise Obama win in Afghanistan over Pakistan. Karzai set the stage three weeks ago by calling on Pakistan, China, and the US to pursue joint policies on Afghanistan. You are thinking, so what, another victory for Pakistan. Wait. What happens when Russia tells Karzai that both Russia and India now want to join the Pakistan-US-Afghanistan coalition? Who has a majority of votes then on Afghanistan policy? Karzai!
Step Five. Obama, Russia and China can quietly use the Asia-Pacific forum to convince Kazakhstan to sideline Iran. In a little noticed but hugel important boost for Islamic leadership in Central Asia, Russia and China have recently appointed Islamic Kazakhstan as Russia's voice on Central Asia's energy and border issues. Kazakhstan must be as bold as brass to do this for Russia, because it will find itself in continuous conflict with Nazi Iran and Pakistan who will both try to curb Russia's relations with the Central Asian and Middle Eastern states, especially with Iraq and Syria. In short, Nazi Iran and Paskiostan want to become so powerful that they can eradicate the French and Russian presence from the Mediterranean, so that a revanchist Germany, newly armed with Iranian tactical nukes, can move in to dominate the Middle East.
President Obama – go for it!
