The Major is taking some down time to meditate on the events of the last 48 hours and plan his future campaigns and overall strategy, and to also refresh his precious bodily fluids. In the meantime, with the recent events of the last 24 hours searing into his consciousness, The Major recommends a classic movie based on the late Tom Clancy novel of the same name: “The Hunt For Red October“, starring Sean Connery and a very young Alec Baldwin in what The Major believes is his finest performance as an actor, even when you take into account his infamous rant from the movie “Glengarry Glen Moss”. And when you take into account notorious fake news merchant and rabid batshit-whackjob Alex Jones, who seems quite a few fries short of a Happy Meal threatened Baldwin on his fake news site–well, that’s The Major’s kind of guy….
Now, you’re probably wondering (especially you millensials): “Why should I watch a movie that glorifies statecraft and disaster scenarios?” That’s precisely WHY, young padawan. Watch this movie and get some real-world insight-even if it was a novel.
This movie also shows the use of Legacy Weapons by nation-states wishing to wield the sphere of infleunce and power. Of course, Legacy Weapons can still inflict a lot of physical damage-but today’s conventional weapons are far more powerful, cheaper to use, easier to use, and cause significant destabilization if used by actors with questionable motives. That’s why they’re so dangerous in the wrong hands or willing to be used by other nation-states to cause mischief and mayhem against their intended target.
