So I turn on the computer tonight and I get greeted by all sorts of crazy news on my screen. It sort of makes the Cold War kid in me look for a desk to hide under. I’m guessing my usual reaction of growing a larger garden will have to wait a few more weeks, maybe I can freeze some more stock, or get a crock of ‘kraut going.
Today’s scary headines in no particular scary order:
South Korea begins drill despite NKorea threat– Nothing like a little drama on the worlds most heavily militarized border. Lets, not forget the NK’s have a couple of nukes and a new crazy leader with a bad hairdo. Maybe the “Great Successor” needs a little conflict to settle things down.
Israel urged against ‘destabilizing’ Iran attack– A nuclear armed nation and a nation yearning to join the “nuclear club”, sort of maybe sworn to destroy each other. That makes me sleep easier tonight. Throw in the fact that one of the would-be-nuke-throwers also sits on the little itty bitty stretch of water through which a good chunk of the World’s dino-juice flows and I feel the need to go and split more wood.
Greeks protest cuts on eve of bailout decision– Oh, Wow!!! A broke nation that can’t borrow anymore money and the people start burning stuff down. Makes me worry about another nation that might have maxed out it’s credit cards to the tune of $15,000,000,000,000.
Cars circle central Moscow in Anti-Putin protest– This one was the least scary to me. I’ve got to give the Russian people props for standing up to Putin. Hasn’t he killed people and wrestled bears or some other crazy stuff like that? I figure the spiritual succesor to Stalin will come out on top and the mass graves out in Siberia will get dug again…
Sorry to be Debbie Downer tonight. I’m guessing the one two punch of The Walking Dead and Shameless is a bit much for me on a Sunday night.
