Breaking the ice


between Russia, China and the USA


is surely a good thing for all of us.



A very symbolic situation, indeed.




I hope it is a good omen for 2014.

It really is not clever to be sailing through thick icy sea,
They are just asking for trouble.

I suggest that place as a training area for the new Chinese aircraft carrier,

instead of dumpling around in the West Philippine Sea.

The American Icebreaker can cut through 6 meter thick ice. Good thing the Americans are coming.
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

Success or Failure Depends on the Heavens!

While the trajectory of an icebreaker is determined by its position and that of the ship it wishes to free, or the nearest open sea, nature makes it easier or harder to achieve depending on how it changes the wind's direction.  If the crosswinds are strong, they move the ice toward the side of the icebreaker vessel, which itself is pushed toward the leeside of ship against the ice sheet on the other side of the boat, this results in a vise-like grip of the icesheets on the two sides of vessel, effectively grounding it.  Avoiding and navigating to minimize the effects of crosswinds is key to success.

This analogy serves to remind the three world powers that diminishing the effect of the crosswinds of Japanese revanchism and militarism is the only way for all three of them to break through the geopolitical icesheet into the open sea of peace.

We wish the best for the US Coast Guard vessel coming to the rescue of the Chinese and Russian ships!
