New Security Alerts
The British are feeling the pinch in relation to recent bombings, the
level has just been raised from 'miffed' to "peeved'! Soon though, the
levels may be raised yet again to "irritated' or even "a bit cross".
Londoners have not been a "bit cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea
supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorised from
"tiresome" to "a bloody nuisance", The last time a "bloody nuisance"
warning level was issued was during the great fire in 1666.
Be aware that the French government announced yesterday that it has
raised its terror alert level from RUN to HIDE. The only two higher
levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate". The rise was
precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag
factory, effectively paralysing their military capability.
It's not only the French that are on a heightened level of alert, the
Italians have increased their alert level from ! "shout loudly and
excitedly" to "elaborate military posturing". Two more levels remain,
"ineffective combat operations" and "change sides".
The Germans also increased their alert state from "disdainful arrogance"
to "dress in uniform and sing marching songs". They have two higher
levels, "invade a neighbour" and "lose".
Seeing this reaction in continental Europe the Americans have gone from
"isolationism" to "find another oil-rich nation in the middle east ripe
for regime change". Their remaining higher alert states are "attack the
world" and "beg the British for help".
Finally over there in Britain they've gone from "pretend nothing's
happening", to "make another cup of tea". Their higher levels are
"remain resolutely cheerful" and "win".
