Throne I.

This is coolbert:

"Most eloquent object".

Never even such a genre' of art ever existed

"Throne of Weapons"

"objet d'art: n. An object of artistic merit. n. A work of art with some artistic merit. n. An artwork exhibited for the purposes of decoration or the reflection of social status."

FURNITURE MADE FROM DISCARDED WEAPONRY AS AN ARTISTIC ENDEAVOR?

"The Throne of Weapons is a 2002 sculpture created by Cristóvão Canhavato out of disused weapons. It is owned by the British Museum and has been called the Museum's most "eloquent object" and has been shown in a wide variety of ways."

As usual click on image to see an enlarged view.

"The sculpture was created by Cristóvão Estevão Canhavato . . . Canhavato works under the name Kester as part of a co-operative called Associação Núcleo de Arte. Kester's artistic education took place at the artist's collective . . . The artists collective was supported by Christian Aid and another Christian group led by Bishop Dinis Sengulane as part of an organisation called 'Transformação de Armas em Enxadas' or 'Transforming Arms into Tools'".

That throne consisting of parts of discarded weapons of war. To include parts of:

* AK-47.

* H&K G3.

* AKM.

* PPSh-43.

" . . . Then He will judge between the nations and arbitrate for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will no longer take up the sword against nation, nor train anymore for war." - - Isaiah 2:4

Mozambique for over two and one-half decades a theater of war, awash with all sorts sof small arms, mines, etc.

Swords into plowshares? You decide.

LSD II.


This is coolbert:

Semper fi dude, you are melting!

"EXCLUSIVE: BOOT MARINES DIVULGE ILLICIT DETAILS OF BATTALION-WIDE LSD TRIP"

UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS PERSONNEL DURING A BATTALION LEVEL FIELD EXERCISE THEIR DRINKING WATER SPIKED WITH THE HALLUCINOGENCE DRUG LSD!!

"Marine officials have denied that the events Leary and Fitzgerald allege ever took place, and the two Marines, who happen to be the most junior members of the battalion, claim they’ve been made to take the fall for whoever spiked the battalion’s water supply with the drug that day."

American Marines battalion while on field exercise their drinking water spiked with LSD. Evidently done knowingly and maliciously so. A serious crime! That entire battalion rendered ineffective. 

"spiked: 5. Informal a. To add alcoholic liquor to: spiked the punch with rum. b. To add a poison or other chemical to: a drink spiked with barbiturates."

DEVOTED READERS TO THE BLOG READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE. ESPECIALLY THE EDITOR'S NOTE IN CONCLUSION

LSD I.

This is coolbert:

Experimentation British style. From a number of decades ago but still relevant.

Once more thanks for the tip the "Coffee or Die" webzine and the article by Matt Fratus.


"The British Royal Marines that made up the 41 Royal Marine Commando unit were battle-hardened warriors . . . There was simply no opponent that was tough enough or smart enough to outwit these badass commandos. Unless, of course, their enemy secretly infused their water bottles with LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), the psychedelic drug."


Just about the best light-infantry in the world reduced to level of children and done so with a medical experiment [surreptitious infusion of drugs in the drinking water] for which informed consent was not received or even asked for. I imagine this "experiment" possibly legal within the context of "medical care or treatment" if understood in a very broad and general sense. Royal Marines too their confidence in leadership diminished?

Shaman.

This is coolbert:

Courtesy to the "Coffee or Die" webzine of the "Black Rifle Coffee" Internet web site and the article by Ethan E. Rocke so apropos especially when taken within the context of the previous blog entry.

Jacob Anthony Chansley/Jake Angeli major idiot, moron and rioter at the USA Capital building 6 January 2021.

MILITARTY VETETAN AND DISCHARGED [PROBABLY UNDER LESS THAN FAVORABLE AND HONORABLE CIRCUMSTANCES] FOR REFUSAL OF MEDICAL CARE AND TREATMENT!

VACCINATION THE ANTHAX VACCINE.

"‘QANON SHAMAN’ ARRESTED AFTER CAPITOL SIEGE IS A NAVY VETERAN DISCHARGED FOR REFUSING VACCINE"

"Arizona resident Jacob Anthony Chansley, who goes by Jake Angeli and calls himself the 'QAnon Shaman,' surrendered to the FBI field office in Phoenix on Saturday and was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, the Department of Justice announced. He was also charged with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds."

DISCHARGE I AM ASSUMING UNDER LESS THAN HONORABLE  CIRCUMSTANCES, GENERAL DISCHARGE PERHAPS!

By law it is impermissible to refuse medical treatment in the military. Again, treatment so broadly defined as to include any sort of prophylactic medicine. As would be an injection of the vaccine for anthrax.

One-third.


This is coolbert:

"prophylactic- - defending or protecting from disease or infection, as a drug, preventive or protective."

Here with an item that gets my interest instantly and without fail.

As reported and seen at the New York Post thanks to the tip from Miguel.

"One-third of US military members are declining COVID-19 vaccinations"

"Roughly one-third of US military members have declined to get vaccinated for COVID-19, a Pentagon official said in a report Wednesday."

Strange indeed! Uniformed military personnel of the armed forces USA BY LAW cannot refuse medical treatment. Medical treatment so broadly defined as to mean ANY SORT of prophylactic care. If the military orders you to take an inoculation YOU CANNOT REFUSE.    

AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

Failure to comply with such an order and you are subject to discharge with less than an honorable record!!

ADDITIONALLY ACCORDING TO MY UNDERSTANDING THE CURRENT VACCINES AS BEING USED IN RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC HAVE NOT BEEN FULLY TESTED FOR EFFICACY OR  NEGATIVE REACTION AS WOULD BE A NORMAL VACCINE! FAST-TRACKING IS THE NORM FOR THE COVID-19 VACCINES.

Flawed.

This is coolbert:

From Strategy Page a beginning paragraph of an article shamelessly extracted and for your perusal.

"Murphy's Law: Iranian Submarine Crises"

SOMETHING VERY SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH THE IRANIAN NAVY KILO CLASS SUBMARINES.

"February 16, 2021: In January 2021 satellite photos revealed that all three of Iran's Russian built Kilo class submarines were still out of the water, apparently undergoing repairs or refurbishment. Previous photos indicated the three subs had been out of the water since late 2020. It is not normal practice to have all of a warship class out of action at the same time. These three subs are not only out of action in a shipyard, but they are out of the water in a drydock situation. That means some serious work is being done, work that cannot wait. This usually means a common flaw with all the ships. Since no other Kilo users report or indicate a similar problem, this situation is unique. The major difference between Iranian Kilos and those of other export customers is that Iran refuses to send their Kilos back to Russia for major maintenance and insisted on doing it themselves. This is risky if you have no experience building similar subs or maintaining them with local parts rather than original parts from Russia. Iran is not commenting on their Kilo crisis."

See my previous blog entry thanks to You Tube the most recent movement of one such Kilo class Iranian submarine to drydock.

Kilo class quite a popular Russian military export item. NO ONE else has encountered such a problem of apparently vital importance? Strange indeed.

Irish.


This is coolbert:

American military men acting badly?

Apology made. If you apologize and freely admit you made a honest mistake all should be forgiven.

From the Russian media outlet Russian Times [RT].

"US officials have apologized to the Irish government after more than 50 military personnel broke Irish Covid-19 rules by spending a night at a Limerick hotel without supplying negative tests or filling in contact-tracing forms"

"Negative coronavirus tests and fully completed passenger locator forms are mandated under strict Irish government rules to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Failing to fill out the locator form carries a six-month prison term and a fine of €2,500 ($3,000). Failing to provide a valid Covid-19 test also carries a €2,500 fine."

Trans-Atlantic flights of military personnel and war munitions what is involved here. 

Ireland not a DECLARED neutral nation but rather ADOPTING a position of neutrality in international affairs.

The Irish rather touchy and sensitive with regard to these chartered flights. In most instances NOT military warplanes but merely the movement of military personnel and munitions through Irish airspace and territory creating an interest and even worry..

See thanks to the Irish Times some articles indicative of Irish concerns in this area:
