Long Way Up Short Way Down


A foreign Captain's been roving around the Specialist's area, provoking a snappy salute and, "Sir, I'm sorry, I thought you were a Three Star!" let the reader understand, whilst beholding the brazen impudence of youth. "Far too young, mate,"  came the commissioned reply. Well said that Captain.

As I pondered this curious tale of military life in the candlelit glow of the DLC Mess and a delicious late night curry, it seemed right to up the ante, "Tell you what, fella, next time you see your new friend offer a different kind of salute. Long way up, short way down, you know the form," which he does, from Canada, "Make the Captain feel at home, what?"

The Specialist seemed impressed by this line of reasoning and fell upon his curry like an ME 262 on a bomber formation. Boom.

In related news, what's with the war drums beating on Ukraine and Russia? Serious question, what's it all about and we know it's been about for quite some time, starting, perhaps, with the risible PR stunt lie that Trump's a Russian spy.

There's just something about Ukraine and Russia which makes our overlords get all warlike. What, we have to ask, are they afraid of and what opportunity do they sense. Or are they simply driven by demonically insane greed and hubris? Like beasts. You'll note a senior German naval officer's resigned over it all.

But as always, you, the reader, be the judge.

Secret Treaties,

Could it be the biden just wants to protect Ukraine to keep his and skippy's checks coming in?

We can rule out American or (Guffaw) Nato interests.

Well Germany and the rest of Europe gets about a third of their natural gas from Russia. I'm no military genius, but they're probably not interested in poking the Bear too hard this time of year. Just sayin'.

Little coming out of the Xiden administration makes any sense whatsoever. With no steady hand on the helm, the slubbordegullions are out to get theirs and the hell with anyone else. My only forecast is it will not end well for the rest of us.

I think, Kid, that there's personal financial interests at stake. Don't say gas.

LSP said...

Now that, Wild, is a very good point.

I can't disagree, WSF. What. A. Clownshow.

Speaking of which, Russia's Siberian shock army's deployed to the Ukraine border. We've sent a ready alert for 8.5k troops to be ready to mobilize.
