Would you like to play a game?!
"It's risky, yes, but it could avoid a war!"
"And it could cause one!"
"I think that's in the cards already, Sir. "
Bergin was exasperated.
"You do not have a lot of options here, Mr. President!"
"I sure don't see any!"
The President paused, staring at his desk for a moment.
"Okay. If we go with this, are you sure the Chinese will play along?"
"Yes." - Bergin almost rolled his eyes. - "It's a boil on their backside they'l be glad to get rid of, Sir.
And this way there will be minimal collateral damage. It'll be over in a day or two."
The President leaned on his desk, then spoke.
"Okay, go for it."
Bergin reached for the phone, dialled a number, then spoke:
" Send the invitations. The party is about to begin."
