Applied analogues idea to Idaho, Boise.
The US has been surrounded and completed dominated by Communist economics. So much so we have made a huge error in allowing them to horde and control the worlds rare earth resources. In which we have not allowed the proper spread of wealth to more than one country. As such causing a massive world reliance on the Communists. So when the Idaho leader went to China, he also was not properly prepared by intelligence units for his basket of exports or abilities to create US companies in Idaho to then seek export contracts with other countries besides the Communists. Same principle to me. When the Alamo folks went out and told the surrounding army what they had and that they would like to leave. Then they where slaughtered due to bad intelligence and seeking white flag help.
Economic Warfare based on Karl's Marxist very specific view of how to destroy free markets and military physical war are very analogous to me, in strategic purposes.
