“Let the other dumb sumbitch spend hisself into the dirt, and then tear his throat out, or just buy him."

And that´s the story of our whole military shebang: gaudy but mostly irrelevant.

North Korea does something that upsets Washington´s digestion, so we send the aircraft carriers. These float fiercely offshore, doing nothing, because there is nothing they can do. They either (a) attack, risking all-out war on the Peninsula, not a particularly bright idea since Pyongyang has all the artillery in the world within range of Seoul, or (b) float in puzzlement and circles while North Korea ignores them. See? Wrong tool. Washington hasn´t figured this out, so it always sends the bathtub toys. China, he no fight. Sell stuff. Fred On Everything

Your Say

I'm skeptical of the North Korean army's vaunted artillery power. Maybe a third of those things are aimed right and of them how many will shoot straight, or at all? Every time one goes off, they can be dealt with, too.

Let the games begin. Time to cull the herds. Oh, and in the Mid-East too. Let the Israelis off the leash and get 'er done.

Tu blog es fantástico visualmente, me refiero a la gente no se aburran. Pero otros que pueden ver más allá de los vídeos y la disposición no será tan impresionados con su comprensión genérica de este tema.
