What’s It all about, Alfie?

As I was conducting my Memorial Day read-a-thon* this weekend, a blockade breaking drama halfway around the world led to an outcome no one wanted, and no one can take back. Such is the wearing way of the world, always has been, always will be when warriors of different stripes meet. 

I want to have a word with whoever is in charge of those in charge.

* I finished Russel Miller's Behind the Llines: the oral history of Special Operations in World War II and am now mourning over The Book of Honor: the Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives by Ted Gup.
