I respectfully suggest that we first need to resolve our basic strategy. Just on this page, we have one suggestion to land in the immediate vicinity of Singapore and another to not land much south of Kota Bharu. If we confine our landings to the Kota Bharu-Singora area, we already have a viable plan to accomplish that and the conquest of Malaya without using the carrier force. Indeed that plan becomes more certain when reinforced by forces made available by not assaulting the Philippines. Discuss it, take a vote, whatever, but we need to make a decision and stick to it as the basis for further planning.
