From tanks to toys 1/1/2
« on: September 15, 2014, 12:41:51 PM »
Putin sat back. “Maybe you should put me in the picture from the start.”

The Secretary for Peace stood up. “The war was very necessary. We found the oil. It is ours. The evil kingdoms of United Europe and America joined forces to deprive us of it.”

The people around the table responded with a round of “Here. Here.”

The man went on. “As the land was unclaimed we were going to build a fortress town over the oil then claim the land in the name of Mother Russia. To stop the EU and USA from stopping us we sent in an armed battalion to protect the engineers.”

Putin scowled so those stinking capitalists are behind all this?”

The minister for peace shrugged. “Who knows? How do you fight a war against an enemy you never see?”

A voice came from the end of the table. “Have they invented the cloak of invisibility?”

Putin purpled. “ Nonsense. Trash like that comes from those decadent books the west is fond of. Harry potter is a good example.”

The man in charge of war shook his head. “Maybe it is magic. To many weird thing seem to happen.”

Again the voice from the end of the table cut in. “Ghosts?”

Putin's shout could be heard in Heaven. “No such thing.”

The war minister looked stern. “I agree. But by putting all the injured in hospital all over Russia the rumours from them are we are fighting ghosts and the unintelligent are becoming to believe them.”

Another man picked up a list from in front of him. “Amazing. 8 thousand injured needing hospital but no recorded deaths. What sort of war is this? How man injured or dead do you estimate for the opponents?”

The war ministered blushed. “None. We have never sighted the aggressors. ”

The room was silent for a moment. Putin's eyes burnt fire down the table. “Have the great brains in Intelligence worked out where our trucks and tanks disappeared too?”

The war lord shrugged. “All they say is they were there disabled one day and gone the next.”

Putin slammed the table. “How can a whole division of tanks disappear over night

Lol!  Ghosts and cloaks?  The Russians are fighting with windmills.

Good piece of satire here:    The Secretary for Peace stood up. “The war was very necessary.

Actually, in a way this is pretty scary.  Just read where Russian fighter jets approached the coast of Alaska.  I get a cold fighting reading this story, Ian.
