In the Course

of research

I HAPPEN

across a lot of (dare I say it?) codswallop (aka utter poop—only more so).

To illustrate, I offer this rather pathetic would-be attempt at humour. (It has to be humour—no genuine viewer could be quite that thick~!) (But judging by the ‘comments’ … quite a few of them actually are. Thats’ moddin edyakashun fore yew!)

buitre16You really don’t want to go there: it’s a tad worse than pathetic (believe me, I suffer for my research).

I read somewhere that Admiral Byrd’s expedition to Antarctica soon after WW2 was sent scampering home with its tail between its legs after getting beaten up by Nazi and Space Alien flying saucers (’nuff said). I liked the idea so thought I’d check it out—you know, brainless Conspiracy Theorist and stuff. But ye gods, way out of my league …

IN ALL THAT

blurry stuff with US gobs running around in RN hats I thought I recognised a few snippets from other sites and vids, one of which I’d found interesting but under a heading similar to “Kamikaze” (and referring to some Sons Of Heaven hot-footing to their heaven).

I’M MORE THAN WILLING TO

apologise if anyone can show me where I’m wrong?

WHO IS THIS

UNAMERICAN DWEEB?

They used to have a name for folks like this—pc

“Short of using nuclear weapons, the US would be faced with mounting a major invasion of mountainous North Korea, something for which it is today unprepared.  It took the US six months to assemble a land force in Saudi Arabia just to attack feeble Iraq.  Taking on the tough North Korean army and militia in their mountain redoubts will prove a daunting challenge.

US analysts have in the past estimated a US invasion of North Korea would cost some 250,000 American casualties and at least $10 billion, though I believe such a war would cost four times that much today.  The Army, Air Force and Marines would have to mobilize reserves to wage a war in Korea.  Already overstretched US forces would have to be withdrawn from Europe and the Mideast.  Military conscription might have to be re-introduced …”

—and in times of emergency they could be rounded up and slammed away somewhere very unpleasant, without trial.

Hah~! They should send him to Gitmo, specially rendit him (no-one need ever know) and all would be sweetness and light—are you listening, Mister Trump?

“Mr Argus! Sir!”

“Yes, Little Virginia?”

“Sir—Donald is doing the best he can—”

“—to stay alive, Kid?”

“… … … … ooooooh … … Sir, you’re impossible!”

“Daft, I call it …”

 

 

EVEN THE

RUSSIANS

with all their history of modern warfare do it too. buitre16

Do what?

Don’t ask … just read this snippet for a clue:

The tank crews who participated in the first Chechen war insistently demanded that the tanks were equipped with closed machine-gun installations, such as is present on the T-90. But officials in cosy offices did not understand the risk to the tank commander if they were to climb out of the hatch, under the crossfire of bullets and shrapnel, and open fire from the mounted heavy machine gun …

—then go think that perhaps the differences aren’t really all that great. They too (the damn’ Russkies) have guys who ‘make fortunes selling inferior bootlaces to the armed forces’ ~ no?

THE BRITISH

had the answer to such criticisms in World War One when the damned pilots were asking (out loud, for Gawd’s sake~!) (in public, even!) why it was that if The Hun had his plane shot out from underneath him, or set on fire, he could simply get out and walk; but they …

The Brits in their time-honoured way stated that it was far better if their pilots didn’t have parachutes—’cos without them they’d bring the planes back and wouldn’t be tempted to abandon still serviceable aircraft. Now we know …

AND NOW

not to make any form of comment here: it is claimed that the US Navy recently fired off fifty-nine Tomahawk missiles at … lots … of dollars each, and some twenty-three of them actually hit Syria. Wow!

I THINK

there’d be a few fewer wars and other unpleasantries if the guys who sell the stuff to the forces are made to go along with their masterpieces and use ’em. Or at least if we did still have wars we could guarantee that the tools would be the very best the makers could produce …

I SUPPOSE

that insisting that anyone voting for a war have his own flesh-and-blood serving in the front lines—not as officers, but as basic grunts at the front—would be a dream too far? (Donald—are you copying all this?)

BUGGER …

WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE

tell us the truth? pc

Dumb question.

Easy answer: no.

THE SIMPLE REASON BEING

that in war the first casualty always is truth. (Cliché, but true …)

SO:

whom do we believe—

  • those typically perfidious Russians
  • the nice duly-elected (ergo God) President of the United Sates*?
  • any of the many truth propaganda outlets …

… all claiming (blatantly or subtly) to be good honest reporting? (Other than me, do any such exist?) (And I have my doubts even about him).

NOT GOOD

but wait, believe now and you get a Free Pass to eternity, complete with all the wine, women, men, infants (if Islamic) and song you could want for all eternity. (Actually, believe now and you may just get it even sooner … boom boom~!)

PEOPLE

disgustipated with the ‘truths’ they are fed sometimes set themselves up as alternate dispensers thereof. It’s all very confusing … a bit like poking through all the various brands and franchises of ‘holy’ books looking for the One True God/s. Pays yer money, take ya chances. Brrrr.

FOR EXAMPLE

this new (to me) outlet. Got a wee article titled “Houthi’s Destroy 11 Saudi Warships in 6 Months” which for all I know might even be true. I have no way of proving/disproving, so like any ‘news’ outlet we have to either accept on faith or worry and fret.

But if you go there I think you are intended to accept the shattered ship image as being of a Saudi ship so clobbered. To which I respond with a cynical “Oh. Really?”

TRUTH

is not only the First Casualty, Truth is always grabbed, stripped, raped, and tucked away out of sight.

But Truth will eventually out, despite the best efforts of the nice folks you have duly elected to safely run your life for you—

Her mirror, there? It’s the Mirror Of Truth. Let’s hope that YOU never have to look into it, but sadly there is no evading it in the long run.

The gamble that our politicians and beloved Leaders always take is purely one of time …

“Mr Argus … Sir?”

“Hic? Oh, Little Virginia; please, not now, Sweetie …”

I FOUND THIS

just now, in my ‘Drafts’

pcbut never posted. I’ve since lost the source and can’t be bothered looking it up, but it’s just as valid today.

Actually more so, Snowflake—but you wouldn’t understand that. For the rest of us: the future is what we allow it to be. Ideas …

Prime Minister Rutte recently issued a warning to migrants who refuse to assimilate into Dutch society. Of course, Rutte was not referring to the thousands of migrants from former Dutch colonies in the Dutch East and West Indies who had no problem adopting Dutch culture, religion, and social manners. Rutte, who faces a 9-point lead by Wilders’s PVV, had some pointed words for the Muslim migrants in the Netherlands. In an interview with «Algemeen Dagblad», Rutte, in what could have been a speech by Wilders, said:

«I tell everyone. If you don’t like it here in this country, get out, get out! That’s the choice you have. If you live in a country where the ways of dealing with others annoy you, you have a choice, go away. You do not need to be here.» Rutte had a particular disdain for those who «don’t want to adapt… who attack gay people, shout at women in short skirts, or call ordinary Dutch people racist». Rutte left very little doubt about to whom he was referring, the recently-arrived Muslim migrants, «There have always been people who exhibited deviant behavior. But something has come to pass in the last year where we, as a society, should have an answer. With the arrival of large groups of refugees, the question arises: will the Netherlands still be the Netherlands?»

Perhaps the above cartoon might be more apt if the word ‘Islam’ were to be deleted, and ‘Snowflake’ put in its place?

A cameraman for the Swedish equivalent of the BBC asked me why this had to be politicised at all; why couldn’t it just be that someone put an explosive device in a bin?

SOMETIMES

pcTHE OBVIOUS

can be seen, but is it—can it ever be—enough?

IF YOU LOOK BACK

through my posts (poor you, if you do) you’ll see how often I state that the United States of America isn’t a country, nor even a nation—it is an Empire. Complete with all the trimmings, too.

Take it or leave it we’ll move on, to a parallel universe person’s perspective on Mr Trump and his Establishment—

He has threatened to cut the F-35, a huge blow to Lockheed-Martin and hundreds of subcontractors; to pull US troops out of South Korea, a blow to the Empire; to end the wars, a blow both to the Empire and the military industry getting rich from them; to pull troops out of Okinawa, crippling the Empire in the Pacific; to start a trade war with China with a forty-five percent tariff of Chinese goods, threatening American corporations with factories there; and to chase out illegal immigrants, an important source of cheap labor to businesses.  He has called NATO “obsolete,” when leaving it would be the death knell of the Empire; and threatened to establish good relations with Russia, when the lack of a European enemy would leave NATO even more obviously unnecessary …

What sense does this make–apart from money and power? Russia is an economically challenged nation of 145 million, less than half of Europe’s population and much less than half of America’s. Its economy is a small fraction of the combined economies of Europe and America. It is not on a war footing. It is not moving forces into position for an invasion. It is not mobilizing. To satellite photography, to NSA these things would be as obvious as leprosy on a prom queen. The Establishment would be screaming to high heaven if there were the slightest trace of preparation for war. The whole business is manufactured …

So I am not the only loose cog in the clock.

He uses the word ’empire’, too. How dare he!

In 1964 the CIA was running various kinds of attacks against North Vietnam, without admitting it. Two intelligence vessels, the Maddox and the Turner Joy, claimed that they had been fired upon by the North. They had not, and if they had been it would not have been unreasonable since the United States was inserting teams of saboteurs into the north. The result, and intention, was to chivy America into wars which devastated three countries and lead to millions of deaths. It worked.

But in retrospect — who the hell cares? Only what’s left of the players and their descendants—the rest is entertainment* and agonised philosophising**.

It’s all history now—ancient waters under rapidly forgotten bridges and brief entries in yellowed log-books/reports (Custer who?).

TO FINISH WITH A QUERY:

On the topic of History … is it really exactly a hundred years since that great ‘War to End All War’?***
