Sometimes these dynamic battle strategies get out of control. That's expected. See, if you act stupid, they'll ignore you. It's in Shakespeare. No, that's acting crazy. But King-Lear crazy, not Henry V crazy. Acting stupid is covered by the general concept of playing dumb, which is the traditional way of dealing with tyrants. Break the typewriter so they relieve you of your secretarial duties, like that. De Blasio is trying to say, "Hey, whatever you say, man." That in turn makes you think he doesn't mean it, while he's actually ready to flood the middle east with beat cops fully prepared to ticket vehicles without limit and shame the NY Times into reporting favorably on settlement expansion. Now that's shaping up into a nice strategy. Am I right?
