Christopher Hitchens and the strange case of the inflatable tanks!
Thanks to the English Tabloid Daily Mail.
"' fulminator-in-chief. . . visceral wit. . . a decent, kind and deeply compassionate man with the air of a prophet about him . . . disreputable or foaming at the mouth . . . bonkers'"
"fulminator - - n. One who fulminates, or criticizes intensely"
"bonkers - - adj. Informal crazy"
See first items # 1 and # 2 as linked below. Then read further # 3 the acerbic response.of Christopher Hitchens. Thanks again in all cases to the English Daily Mail.
GREAT BRITAIN NOT EVEN ANYMORE A MEDIUM-SIZED WORLD POWER? FAKE AND OVERBLOWN?
Without further ado:
1. "British Army could introduce blow-up tanks to swell the size of armed forces in the eyes of the enemy"
2. "It's the enemy - blow 'em up! British army could deploy INFLATABLE tanks in bid to confuse enemies on the battlefield"
3. "PETER HITCHENS: Inflatable tanks? Perfect for our fake, overblown nation"
