YESTERDAY

I POSTED

and used a book I’m finishing (and shall promptly re-read, now I know what it’s all about~!) as reference; the source for the below pic-and-comment which as always leads to an inevitable conclusion, namely—

                          WARS ARE NEITHER WON

                          NOR LOST

                          BY HEROIC PAWNS* … BUT

                          BY INDUSTRIAL CAPACITY AND CAPABILITIES

—which explains why such emphasis is placed on either a “lightning strike” war (aka blitzkrieg) or successful total economic mobilisation whilst the pawns hold the line.

HERE’S A THOUGHT:

The wee damsel above is a heroic pawn.

The “real arrogant etc etc prick” referred to was also a heroic prawn … but wotif his success rate outnumbered production rates of ‘heroes’ and their tools (you know, dive bombers and tanks and battleships and other ‘boy’s toys’*)?

Short of enough nukes … we’d have lost and his ilk (brilliant theatricals, though~!) would have won.

CAN WE DRAW

any lessons from the History?

Any conclusions?

DON’T GO

asking me. I’m a bit busy right now—

Moi

go ask a politician. They got all the answers … zzzzznorp
