    What lunacy! /obvious joke

    This particular operation has been well known for some time, so there's not all that much to "reveal" here. Plus, this is right from the Cold War; insane-sounding games of one-upmanship were pretty much the norm. So, you know...

    Don't be so British. People here cite from Fox News. Daily Mail wins.

    But you have a choice in the US. A bad choice but a choice nevertheless.

    Not the choice to make a brand new party that fits better your beliefs apparently. Just saying... :P

    There are other parties, but the voting method used makes it pretty much impossible for anyone else to rise above the two large parties. At least so far, but I don't see a dramatic change in the future either.

    The main difference between fiction and real life is that fiction has to make some kind of sense.


    And just because we're also talking about The Daily Mail....
