I see Russia is threatening to drown Ireland.
All they have to do is detonate their new not-so-secret weapon – the nuclear tsunami torpedo. One 100 Megaton big bang underwater off Donegal and a massive wave of radioactive water will reduce us and our neighbours to a glowing swamp.
I suppose I can understand their desire to eradicate the UK [what country in the past hasn’t wished for that?] but I’m not quite sure what us Paddys have done to annoy Moscow. It seems a little unfair. Maybe we should inform Russia that we ain’t British, part of Great Britain or even the United Kingdom? We’re supposed to be neutral but I grant that neutrality is a little vague – we won’t supply weapons but we send Ukraine our best wishes. It’s like supporting a particular football team without actually being on the team?
I can imagine their tsunami would make quite a mess all right but I can’t see it eradicating these islands totally like they seem to dream? There are mountains in Donegal after all and while the tsunami may top them, they will still impede progress somewhat. And by the time the wave has scoured Ireland it’s not likely to cross the Welsh Mountains without slowing down a lot and I can’t see it actually reaching the east coast. They would be better off just using a smaller nuke and dropping it on London?
Maybe I’ll drop a line to old Vlad and suggest that?
