"What If We Win?"

There is a amusing story about a state that failed to achieve its development plans. This state was unable to fulfill its promises to the people, in terms of offering them prosperity, unique education, fascinating cities, and other shiny slogans. As a result, the leadership of this state held an extremely urgent meeting to discuss the repercussions of the situation.

The president asked for his ministers' opinion and advice in addressing this crisis. The defense minister responded by saying: "Let us declare war against the West and attack them. The West will retaliate, and, of course, destroy us. Accordingly, they will feel very guilty and announce a reform plan to fix the situation."

"This plan will be similar to the Marshall Plan implemented in Germany after its defeat in World War II. As a result, giant projects will be launched and major banks will set up operations. The country will prosper and the people will feel satisfied and happy, thus making us heroes and saviors in the people's eyes."

After a few moments of silence, the minister of agriculture gave a deep sigh and said: "But what if we win the war and defeat the West?"

Interesting parable - it explains how messed up our foreign policy really is and why we shouldn't feel the necessities to rebuild.
