a thought, to be continued... but for the time being, i'll say that
at this point it seems they have embarked on a strategy of trying to co-opt me as an excuse to increase the presence of the foreign security establishment, etc. ('if you can't beat 'em join 'em?')
but once the yakuza have been eliminated, there will be no need for a presence of the foreign security establishment.
perhaps that presents the CIA with a bit of a strategic conundrum?
that is to say, "how do we infiltrate and covertly colonize other countries when there is no internal enemy or disequilibrium to justify our presence?"
