you have a good point, but i think the religious, apocalyptic, end of
fucking civilization dystopia is the relevant one for this bunch of
head cases, not just a piddling wwiii.  they are seriously nuts.  it's
like they took the raving racism of 12th century, richard the bloody
lion heart, crusader chic and mixed it in with the snooty bad taste of
the nineteenth century british raj.   post-modern kipling is what they
need.  rummy just talks like a fascist cat in the hat.
