The two bottles of Pooters Porter Politics Club

My own world view is rather simple, some would say alarmingly so. You see, if there was this country that did stuff the rest of the world didn't like, let me see, for instance murdering people in hotels whilst using false passports but also managing to be caught on the CCTV of said hotel, well the rest of the world might be a bit leery of letting them get close to finger-on-the-button-games in the tree hut at the White House.
I mean, particularly if that country's main claim to fame recently was sending highly trained naval types onto a boat, that may have been full of antagonistic types, armed with paintball guns. Then when some of said antagonistic types, turned out to be a tad antagonistic, there was a shoot out that could only end badly.
I'm just saying that you don't entrust your porno magazines to one of the bully kids when you know he's got the reasoning power and abilities of an enraged tree sloth.
But today one reads that the happiest kingdom of them all, Saudi Arabia, has got into a Secret Squirrel deal with the Israelis to allow passage of Israeli bombers across SA to blow up Iranian nuculah facilities and devil worship shrines. Now, of course, no one likes Mr A. badoodling on about the terrible things he would like to do to Israel and it would be a bad thing if his car should get vapourised with him in it but do we want the fate of the Middle east to be dependent on  Ralph Wiggim with nukes???
Side note: what is it about proximity to oil that negatively affects IQ? Sulphur compounds?  Dinosaur viruses that we have lost the ability to resist? Perhaps the spirits of the dinosaurs possesses the finders so that when an oil rig blows up, their arse doesn't get hot for a week???

It was the asloths, Ai-asloths, a very unstable agrgumentative breed.
It was, I repeat, them.

Thought you were about to go on about some country w/ which I might have a relationship of sorts.

Fortunately, you didn't. The place I'm thinking of has all our pirates under control.

AK is talking politics and is not allowed any more porter until he sobers up.
I do not trust the current leaderships of Israel and Iran with nukular weapons any further than I would trust Mrs Cat. No-one consulted me.

In my day, and in my previous profession, "secret squirrel" was not a general phrase for all-around sub-rosa convos and black-bag operations; it applied very specifically to the people tasked with tapping phone lines (dating back to the time when phone-taps still required someone to climb up the telephone pole and attach jumper leads to the appropriate lines). We looked down on them, though I am sure they were craftsmen in their way. Just saying.

Hey, what could possibly go wrong?

P.S. I don't trust OUR leadership with nukes. Or much else.

Nobody's cheered up by the thought of Arab and Israeli united by the project of dealing out death?

That Saudis (Wahabi Sunni Arabs) and Iranians (Shiite Persians) do not get along is not news. Check out all the high end military hardware the Saudis buy - who do you think they're deterring? I've been saying for over a decade that when the middle east truly blows up, that's the conflict at the core of it. The rest is just flung feces.

Now, to the important stuff.

"Tree Hut".

Oh my. Is this generally accepted NZ usage? Because I really like it. We had "Tree Houses", or if we were less family oriented and more militarized we had "Tree Forts". But nary a Tree Hut to be found. And, somehow? I feel like I missed out a little...

Better the porno magazines than the ammunition magazines!

The large hadrosaur collider will eventually unlock the secret, allowing us to fight those viruses.

Well, in my day, it referred to a hidden treasure that we knew lurked in the garments of all the young lasses who formed the unwitting subjects of our lies concerning our amatory prowess.

In my day, secret squirrel was morocco mole's buddy.

Did these aspirations also include finger-on-the-button games in the tree hut?

My Dad's got a garage and he said we can use it as a hut.

Tree huts are from the far off days of non parental guidance when we weren't constrained by PC rubbish and kids were free to plummet from trees surrounded by planks with rusty nails in them.
fish is indeed correct about Secret Squirrel and his friend and one does not wish to know any more about the fevered dreams of adolescent boys and imaginary rodents.
And, since all politics is local, I am not going to buy any nuculah weapons from anyone. No, not even in a raffle, Mr S. Clyde!!
