    1. Thanks Anon – foreboding is exactly the word to describe how I feel. Seeing the world’s 2nd and 6th biggest military spenders bumping chests like this unsettles me.

      I sometimes wonder if despite concerns about a combustible Middle East, the Arch Duck Ferdinand of World War III may turn out to be an ill-fated fisherman hauling nets near a far-flung rock in the Pacific.

    1. Thanks for the comment Anna – doubly thanks, in fact, because if you hadn’t made it, I might not have come back and seen I’d turned a duke into a duck. *^ – ^*

      I don’t know any ducks called Ferdinand, or anything else for that matter, but can’t help wondering now what an arch duck might be like...
