A reader wanted to know how my fictional Unelected President “Mike Medlock” would handled the Russian buzzing of US Navy ships. He would give every topside sailor in the Navy a laser pointer.
“President Medlock” does not hesitate to use maximum super power force when appropriate, but he prefers to use the cheapest, cleverest, lowest casualties on both sides, finesse means to eliminate enemy capability to hurt Americans whenever possible. And he does.
He’s trying to get the US military out of the mindset that every military situation requires a billion-dollar, macho firepower response. For example, can you wipe out 48% of the Iranian economy without firing a shot or dropping a bomb? See my forthcoming novel.
