    I can’t see Mr Biden attacking Iran. After all he is an old man who has never had any military training as far as I know, and therefore would be no match for the Iranian army. Besides a man of his age would look ridiculous tripping about like the sugar-plum fairy in military fatigues.
    I fancy his chances against Russia tho’.

    Some big capitalists are so unconcerned about a world nuclear war that they are buying “trophy homes” in prime locations in big cities like London (which are surely likely to be annihilated in any nuclear war) rather than having bunkers built for them.

    And what about all the Russian capitalists who own expensive properties in London? They wont want them knocked about by Russian atom bombs. Blistered paintwork, the odd cracked window pane and what have you. Would be a bit of an own goal there.
    So if nothing else Greater London ought to be all right. Well, the swankier parts.

    Scary headline but if you read what he is saying it is that, if ever there would be a war between NATO and Russia, there is no prospect of this being a war with conventional weapons and so all the talk in Europe about needing to build up conventional forces there to meet a supposed threat of a Russian invasion is meaningless as this would be pointless.

    I don’t think his explanation of why European politicians and militarists are talking up the possibility of a Russian invasion holds up. It is probably more to do with the military-industrial complex lobbying for more business for the merchants of death.

    Certainly does speak for itself – there’s one born every minute.

    Seems to be The Telegraph pushing all this war fear, more than the tabloids.
