Circle girl to the rescue!

Financial Times headline:
Asia defence spending to overtake Europe
Fortunately, the European Empire has women who sit in circles with disapproving looks to defend it.

Wow, it's a perfect storm of bien-pensant peacenik idiocy PLUS not-very-subtle racism!

Hmmm . . . okay sitting in a circle until the problem disappears does seem to be, for certain politicians anyway, the preferred method for dealing with a crisis.

OTOH being defended by an army of women with shapely bottoms dressed in tight lycra does have a certain appeal.

On the whole, I subscribe to the Indiana Jones method of handling strangely-screaming and grimacing people who wave sharp objects and/or their extremities around.

The EU, of course, believes they can impress everyone else to death with their incredible degree of enlightenment and self-actualization.

It didn't work the last time they tried it, namely at Munich in 1938. They're probably fortunate that nobody who's actually organized wants to invade them this time round.

Still, the girl was definitely cute in that outfit.
