Cloud earth in space

Just when you thought the elementary school-yard back and forth was over, a New Cold War has broken out.

Cold wars are good for the military-industrial complex, the national-security-consulting-complex, and the careers of professional politicians.

However, the inconvenient thing about cold wars is that they have every potential to go hot. I was of a generation that sweated through the last Cold War and the era of Dr. Strangelove.

That thought crossed my mind as I walked past the Russian Trade mission in Washington this morning and saw that it was occupied by … United States Secret Service uniformed police officers. Poo-tee-wheet, poo-tee-wheet, as Kurt Vonnegut wrote.

So, I made a little video to commemorate the occasion.

 

Enjoy.
