To all my friends working abroad at various embassies and consulates. Tomorrow is Take Your Guns and All Your Ammo to Work day. Don't leave home without them. Bring some spares in case your friends run out of ammo or shoot the lands out of the barrel. Hopefully you've already put the kids on the plane for a brief vacation with the other responsible parent.
Excellent illustration you've chosen Cap'n. Chinese Gordon I presume. I just read a few things about those days. Certain cultures were born a threat to Western Civilization and remain a threat.ReplyDelete
There are none so blind as those who will not see.
When you consider how many centuries the Barbary Pirates raided and slaved as far north as Scotland and Ireland and the way in which they got a pass from all the Mediterranean Powers and England it is no surprise that even today they get away with murder there. It is indeed Gordon at Khartoum.Delete
Sarge beat me to it. The number of today's youth who have ever heard of Chinese Gordon? Less than zero? Hell most of todays college grads were four yrs-old when the Towers went down. Saw a you tube vid recently where they had NO CLUE as to the reason for the attack. The lessons of history? GOOD LUCK with that..ReplyDelete
I saw the same video or one just like it. I've noticed that the progressive darlings make the most vigorously obtuse idiots. I've never known one to hesitate to accuse others not of their ilk of lying or making stuff up but I always wonder, how can they tell? They don't actually know anything.Delete
