A March Madness GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, it is BEGINNING! Another tournament is upon us. Get your brackets filled out people and fake like you are a basketball mastermind! Newbie did!
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s THURSDAY! Time to THINK!
So, Russia knocked one of our drones out of the sky.
The way it appears is that Good Ol’ ‘Murica was flying a drone over the Black Sea. Checking things out, doing it’s thing, minding it’s business. Then, couple of Russian planes show up and start harassing like drunk frat boys hitting on the only female in a bar at “Last Call.”
Sharp turns, close “rub ups”, showing off their “guns.” I’m sure we’ve all seen it in the bars and clubs. You get the picture.
Well, that’s what was going on between the drone and the Russians.
Then, the Russians start flying by and dumping fuel on it. Super sexy! Staying in the bar scene, it’s like when the boys have too much and start sloshing their drink all over everyone. Same thing only now, they are sloshing on the target of desire.
Then, one of the pilots gets a little too close and clips the drone, knocking it out of the sky. So much for taking the girl home.
Now, as the news feeds go off the handle on this and the “Armchair Warriors” start rattling their mouths about going to war, let’s see if we can Think About This.
Is this an act of war? Technically, yes. Our doctrine, by the letter would view an act of hostility against this drone as an act of war. Why? It’s just easier to have a clear line set out on stuff like this.
Will we go to war over this? Nope. Why? Well, it was a drone. Nobody was hurt. The pilot controlling the thing was probably in Las Vegas so they should be fine.
Russian pilots are shit pilots. Seriously. I mean they should have air superiority over Ukraine but they don’t because they keep getting shot down by farmers with sling shots.
The ONLY thing Russian pilots are good at shooting down are unarmed commercial airlines.
See, some may not remember, but back in September of 1983, we came really, REALLY close to going to all out war with Russia. One of their drunk ass pilots shot down, LITERALLY, with a missile, a Korean Airlines (flight 007). He killed 269 innocent people, 62 of which were ‘Muricans.
Russia tried to deny they did it. Just like they try to deny they invaded Ukraine.
Nope, we did not go to war over that. We won’t go to war over this drone thing. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ensuing Basketball Madness coming up. You will have much more fun!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Be the person a stranger will do CPR on. Check in on each other and remember the last body part to die are your pupils. They…DI-ALATE! HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAA! Oh that’s good!
