The Russians have spoken.
You may remember a fortnight ago I mentioned how they were threatening to drown us and the UK in a radioactive lake? Well, our Teashop was a little miffed by this and told the Russians that they could do what they liked with the UK but to leave us alone as we’re neutral. I think that was a fair response?
Well, they have responded to his response, and this is where my understanding of things comes off the rails.
First of all they say that “the whole British archipelago is basically a sinkable island“. I suppose technically these islands could be considered to be an archipelago in that we are a group of islands but that is beside the point. The point is their complete and utter ignorance of geology. Do they seriously think we are just sitting here bobbing up and down on the Atlantic waves while fish swim beneath us? Are we anchored by gigantic cables to prevent us floating away?
Ireland is indeed surrounded by water and therefore someone of astoundingly limited intelligence might think we are floating and therefore sinkable. Not so. We are just a bit of the Eurasian Tectonic Plate which happens to poke up above sea level though technically the plate is floating on a sea of magma. To actually sink Ireland would require a shift in the tectonic plates that would be beyond cataclysmic and definitely be the end of the entire planet.
Saying that “Ireland literally flew into a rage” is a little steep? Personally I just had a good laugh and then forgot about it as did most people. And I should point out that to literally fly, we would all have to take to the air. I do however take exception to their assertion that “as a neutral country it wasn’t nice for Ireland to become collateral damage” It wouldn’t be nice? So in one sentence they admit we are neutral but will blow us up anyway? I shall die happy in the knowledge that I am officially collateral damage.
Then things get complicated.
Somehow their video was in response to something Johnson said and therefore he was the one who should apologise. There is a bit of twisted logic there? I don’t even remember Johnson threatening to sink Russia though he may have done. Maybe he made the threat while drunk at a party somewhere?
Russia is not intimidating anyone, Kiselyov said, adding that “talking about our capabilities has an anti-war modality”.
I don’t even know what the fuck that means. Not a clue.
