And another clever use of windows by Torgny.

Your little grabs of realty so often come through glass not once, but twice, lens and window.

Very nice, and surprisingly thought-provoking.

The Barbarian,

As a young boy I had a friend who knew all the data about the war ships in the Navy Base KA4. The threat was then supposed to come from the east.

There was never such a threat. It was a fabrication of the other super power during the so called cold war

Then the base was closed, when the generals couldn't justify the high costs any longer.

We are quite happy with the old buildings. Nowadays theyare used for other purposes, such as a Health University and othe enterprises.

The "terror balance" of the "cold war" is but a faint memory. Now there is just one superpower, that can do what it wants

Tulips in stead of missiles. Lighthouse in stead of heavy searchlight

Torgny

Dear Torgny upon reading your words concerning the fabrication of threat above I remembered an anectode about fabrication of prejudices which was related to me in a bitter sarcasm bymy father in lawwho'sfromTrabzonin the Black Sea region of Turkey, aged 71 now. He said all the children of the town rushed to the shore with curiosity to see the 'pig headed' humans!!upon hearinga Russian ship had landed there!! Actually those were the times followingthe adoptionof the financial aids according to the Marshall planand signing of the bilateral agreements accordingly by thepoliticians in power with many a justification to the public supported by an underlying fear and lots of BS of course...
