They’re The Enemy
Even I have to admit that Colonel Haulley’s line on this page is pretty harsh. But there you have it. And oddly enough, it comes on the 95th anniversary of Armistice Day, when the First World War finally ended. Here in the U.S. we’ve had so many wars since then that now we call it “Veterans’ Day,” but it’s well to remember the Great War, which was the first modern conflict that really took Nation-State warfare to a whole new and mass-industrialized level, which we now have to live with. And of course, in the world of 6-Commando, the Great War was the only World War they ever had, and was even worse than ours. We haven’t yet found our way out of that rabbit hole, but I live in hope that one day we’ll manage to do so. As I’ve said before, I can think of many wars that were worth winning, but none that were worth starting.
At any rate, this week is (after a fashion) a two-for-one, as I took the opportunity to make some “tweaks” to the last page, as well. There were one or two things that just weren’t sitting right with me, so I fixed them. And now I’m happy.
For the time being, though, I have to get to sleep. I’m on the verge of getting some kind of a cold or something – I can feel it. And me and respiratory ailments do not get along too well. So it’s off to bed for me. Until next week, folks – all the best!
