"An idea no longer shrouded in mist, through wave or ether comes to me, like a star from high up in the skies, or a pearl from the bottom of the sea." - Victor Hugo (Les rayons et les ombres)
And almost all of it so pointless Gwil.
It's a booming industry. France didn't have any trouble selling that ship they were building for Russia but couldn't sell it to them because of the sanctions. Leaders queue up to buy this stuff, they can't get enough of it. Fear is the key salesman here.
Gwil do you suppose these wars would lessen if the politicians had to lead their troops as per in ancient times ?
Never will happen. Too much at stake. On TV once I saw Junior Bush wearing a flying jacket. He supposedly prayed together with Holy Tony before bombing the crap out of Iraq. Two men alone before God.
Of political thrones we are the legs; we must step away with our votes.
There's a saying that each country gets the government it deserves. I think there's a grain of truth in that.
