More Woes for the DUK Nations

This Post comes to you in recognition of and with compliments to my Friend Nimrod of NOLA who emailed me the link.  When I first saw the Gmail headline I gasped momentarily, wondering what might have happened to the great Hunter of NOLA.

 The link is actually about the scrapping of the Nimrod Spy Plane Fiasco.  Read: The sad story of Nimrod, UK version

 It is an utter shame to see this beleaguered and divided little country wracked by more scandal.  The piece is well written by a person in high places and it is good to see two references of humor that the British were once known for in two points that he mention.

 “The MRA4 might have played a big role in counter-piracy operations, but the truth about piracy is that the rich world – and in particular the maritime industry – really doesn’t care very much about the problem. It would be easy to control piracy if there were a genuine will to address it, but there isn’t; so the argument is a hollow one in the case of Nimrod.

 “Of course, there is always the Olympics and the role that aerial reconnaissance will play in the security around that. ‘But a three-week festival of sport is hardly a key argument for a major defence system.’“

 It reminds me of an American who came out with this gem recently “The biggest problems in America are not Obama, socialism or communism, Wall Street with the greed and corruption, or the Unions or China.  No” he said, “the biggest problem in our Country is the Voter who voted the fools in that we have in Congress and the entire Government.”

 It’s good point for Britannia to consider.  Who are the fools who voted the fools in that decided to have the Nimrod Defense System in the first place.  What on earth did they aim to do with it in the first place?

 But the fiasco graphically explains why China and Russia are now the undisputed World Leaders.

    Cheech

    May I ask you to come in here please? I need some pics from you and will tell you what they are as soon as I see you here.

    Thanks.

  2. Cheech Says:

    Hello Ike, I hope I don’t dash your hopes for pictures. I only pass pictures along and save very few of them.

    What kind were you looking for?

    • Ike Jakson Says:

      Thanks for coming in, Cheech.

      You remember that you once sent nice pictures of the three aircraft carrier vessels. There was one for Centum, one for Reagan or Bush [I think] and one for Obama. It was very funny. Have a look and see whether you can find them.

      Are you keeping well?

  3. Cheech Says:

    Ike, I only have one set of old pictures saved and it the set I sent you recently, the ones taken in Washington D.C.

    The one you are refering to is a joke and I promise you, it will come around again and, I’ll send it then.

    I’m not keeping as well as I would like, but doing great for 66 years old.

    How about you?

    • Ike Jakson Says:

      Thanks Cheech

      When you find them, do let me know.

      Take care of number One. We are getting on but I am fine except for the eye and I remind him every day that we have quite a ways of road left to go before we part.
