but from where could come so much confusion in the sentiment..i feel
specialy bad when i see a colonel or any erzats of that on tv trying to
explain me some militarian&war status, what is perfectly new since gulf war,
cause the fuck at each time we saw such clown at tv befor it was for
throwing them tomato & rotten salad, even for the army 'la grande muette'
'the great dumb' it was dishonoring to arse around on tv in front of some
tacky civilian, the thing seem at their historical & odd place then,  but
since i feel myself as some ridiculous magical realist garcia marquez
general bumping his belly at the bar of some barnumesque mess officier,
bloody democratie, & the barman is kubrick who laugh at me in saying 'no we
dont serve beer in usan macdonald, go oafy degaulle asking to josé bové in
your french ones then we the sober brit & usan put french condom at our gun,
to each its cultural exception'
