Countries of Asia; an alternative view

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

16th October 2022

I have done something similar on Europe and it is high time I completed this. Asia is a big continent, the largest in the world; hence this is quite a long post.

However, as it is attached to Europe and Africa I don’t quite understand why it is separated in the name, except perhaps its people do vary from the other two continents.

Apparently I’m in good company as Wikipedia says

Herodotus comments that he is puzzled as to why three women’s names were “given to a tract which is in reality one” (Europa, Asia, and Libya, referring to Africa)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia

China and India dominate it in terms of area and population. But don’t forget Russia which straddles Europe and Asia and is very large in terms of land mass.

As regards why it is called Asia there seems some debate. As a girl’s name it means “sunrise” I gather.

http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Asia

Phonetically it is ‘a shah’, and a shah is in essence a monarch such as the once shah of Iran.

Asia could be broken down into ‘As I a’. ‘As I a what’ you might say. But it sounds rather like ‘as ‘igher’, i.e. ‘as higher’.

As Asia contains the Himalayas which has the highest mountain in the land masses of the world, this substantiates the meaning of Asia. 

Anyway, I may well look more broadly at the continents in due course, but here is my sideways look at the individual countries of Asia. There may be some truth in what I say, see what you think. Comments welcome of course.

A

  • Afghanistan – ‘Afghan is tan.’ One of seven ‘stans’, one of eight ending in ‘tan’ where the people have tans, i.e. have a brown colour to their skin.

It lies in a mainly mountainous region with valleys and its capital is Kabul. This is a ‘head bull’ of course, K as in king.

It is currently run by the Taliban. There are a lot of things you cannot do under the Taliban. But then it is an Islamic state and anyway it’s in the name, Tali-ban, no you can’t do that, it is banned.

A ‘tal’ is valley in German, so maybe it is things banned in the valley. Mind you the Germans like their rules to excess and lots of things are banned and regulated.

Afghanistan is said to be the heart of Asia. It has been fought over for a long time which is very sad. Perhaps this is why Asia suffers various problems.

But then an anagram of Afghanistan is ‘Hi fang Satan’. This explains an awful lot.

  • Armenia – the country is also considered part of Europe. Please see E is for…..Europe      
  • Azerbaijan – the country is also considered part of Europe. Please see E is for…..Europe

B

  • Bahrain – The people sneer at rain, ‘Bah! Rain!’ Not sure why, as rain very useful. Perhaps they are saying rain is barred or forbidden instead as it is very dry in the country.  

It is an island country, an archipelago. I have not met Archie Galop who might live here as this is an anagram of archipelago.

Another anagram is “ape oligarch”. Considering there is oil in the country this is quite interesting. Although all archipelagos would have the same anagram.

  • Bangladesh – ‘Bang la desh’. If you are a school pupil, then try banging the desk.

There are a lot of school pupils in Bangladesh. It must be very noisy if the all bang their desks. No doubt it would be so loud it would cause an avalanche in the Himalayas to the north.

And this might cause problems for those ‘aving a lunch at the time.

Its capital is Dhaka. Why they want a car as a capital I don’t know.

https://newrepublic.com/article/118416/what-dhaka-bangladesh-traffic-capital-world-can-teach-us

Looks like it’s not just cars, but coaches too. So it’s not just desk banging, but traffic horns honking I imagine.

  • Bhutan – this is where Asia gets its bhuttons to do up its shirt-ans of course. One of 8 ‘tan’ countries in Asia. The landscape might be rather tan or brown but only in part, so somewhat confusing.

Bhutan should not be confused with butane according to Wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butane

Apparently butane can cause “Sudden sniffer’s death” syndrome. Perhaps this was the cause of the deaths in Bhutan referred to here.

https://www.bmj.com/rapid-response/2011/11/02/sudden-deaths-after-pentavalent-vaccination-vaccine-really-safe

Apparently some so-called experts blamed ‘Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)’. They always blame Sid when it is really their fault. SIDS is an unexplained death.

Duh, it’s the vaccines stupid.

  • Brunei – Where the brown eyed come from. In the Wikipedia entry it says

According to legend, upon landing he exclaimed, Baru nah (loosely translated as “that’s it!” or “there”), from which the name “Brunei” was derived.

Well, as most of its inhabitants are brown eyed this explanation seems rather farfetched to me. Mind you, most of the population of Asia has brown eyes. This gives some interesting information. Whether it’s all correct is another matter.

  • Burma – This is the ‘beurre ma’ or ‘butter mother’. Although you might think butter would melt in the heat there, perhaps it is normally in the form of ghee, clarified butter.

And if you are from the States, I guess you might ‘gee, shucks, well what do you know!’ You learn something every day, don’t you?

Also referred to as Republic of the Union of Myanmar or RUM for short. If you fancy a short drink or wearing shorts that’s up to you.

Myanmar sounds rather like ‘My own mother’. However, Wikipedia says ‘Both names derive from the earlier Burmese Mranma or Mramma’. Now, it seems obvious to me that this is ‘Mr am ma’ or ‘Mr and Ma’.

That is Mr and Mrs or maybe Mr is a mother. Sounds transgender to me and rather confusing. I’ll stick with Mr and Mrs as this makes good sense.

But then we do talk about fatherland or motherland. All very interesting.

C

  • Cambodia – the Cam body, or body of the Cam. Or possibly the ‘Cam body here’. Perhaps Cambridge has some influence.

It has suffered dreadfully over the years, including from interference by the USA. It is currently struggling in many ways from its turmoil.

It is also known as Kampuchea. An anagram of this is ‘a muck heap’. This explains a lot.

But it has great potential and has come on in more recent years.

Angkor Wat is a main tourist destination. ‘a grot wank’ is an anagram. I wonder how many people knew that.

  • China – this is the place of the foot lady, hence Chi-na. Chi meaning ‘foot’ and ‘na’ being lady (ladies say ‘Na’ or ‘No’ quite a lot you see).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_units_of_measurement#Length

Chinese ladies tend to be small or petite. They therefore have small feet.

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Chi

Of course it might alternatively be ‘Chin a’ as in chin on the face. There are a lot of Chins in china.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chin_%28surname%29

Chi also means energy or force. A foot can be forceful when applied to someone’s backside. Especially when you are a mother and your son will not get out of bed.

Or if you are a wife and your husband will not get out of bed.

China’s capital in Beijing, formerly Peking. I assume the capital is beige in colour. Having had look at some photos this might be partly the case. But then a lot of cities can be beige and boring in parts.

Of course pollution is bad and this makes everything look beige, if not dull and lifeless.

It also makes people very ill, or even kills them.

The same thing happened in Wuhan in 2020. Which is why Wuhan ‘Flu came along. Only it wasn’t a lab escape or bat, just pollution causing SARS or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.

Why it has to be me to point out the blindingly obvious I don’t know?

Or maybe I do, and I’m not telling.

The country is also known as the People’s Republic of China. It is run by elites in the communist party who know best what is good for the people.

The people can disagree with this, but may have to spend time in a secure place afterwards to reflect upon their words and realise their mistake. When they do they can be let out.

But China is an amazing country with many varied landscapes. And its peoples do some things wonderfully well, like tea, silk, china (of course) and medicine.

Indeed, they have understood much more than western medicine with all its poisonous Nazi drugs.

But I am not sure about its engineering.

See what I mean?

  • Cyprus – the country is also considered part of Europe. Please see E is for…..Europe

G

  • Georgia – the country is also considered part of Europe. Please see E is for…..Europe

I          

  • India – This lies underneath the Himalayas on an atlas or map. It looks rather diamond like in shape with a bit attached to the east.

I gather Bharat is also used as a name. Sounds like a ‘bar rat’.  I dare say there are quite a lot of bar rats in India. Some may say they run the country. But not everyone will like them saying that, especially those who run the country.

Hindustan is also used but strictly applies to the northern parts and Pakistan which is separate. Who Hindu Stan was is not known. But I assume he is a cousin of Paki Stan and Afghani Stan.

It’s capital in New Delhi. This replaced the old one which is called Old Delhi of course. The Old Delhi was selling lots of good things to eat in its emporiums and markets, and these were known as delhis or delis.

We have them in the UK as well. We call them in full delicatessens, or delicate eatings, as in ‘essen’ from the German.

In French essence means petrol or gasoline. You wouldn’t want to eat that. But then they do use crude oil products in all sorts of foodstuffs.

https://www.petro-online.com/news/fuel-for-thought/13/breaking-news/what-foods-contain-petroleum/37415

They say you are what you eat. Perhaps this explains spontaneous combustion. And why funeral pyres on the banks of the Ganges, a major river of India, can be exciting.

  • Indonesia – This consists of a lot, and I mean a lot, of islands. It is ‘In don is here’.

Jakarta is its capital. Sounds like they may use a lot of carts to take things round.

https://factsofindonesia.com/facts-about-traffic-jam-in-jakarta

But it looks as though they use cars and lorries nowadays.

https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2016/nov/23/world-worst-traffic-jakarta-alternative

I like bicycles. You can carry a lot on a bicycle with a bit of imagination and common sense, or perhaps uncommon sense.

https://matadornetwork.com/abroad/the-crazy-shit-people-carry-on-bikes-in-vietnam-pics/

However, sometimes people are basket cases.

  • Iran – ‘I ran’. I ran what precisely? This is not clear. As it used to be known as ‘Purr sher’, perhaps it was cats.

            Try declining ‘I ran’. Very difficult as they may issue a fat wa, (as opposed     to a fin, or thin, wa). Also known as Islamic Republic of Iran.

            Or ‘Is lamic re public of Iran’. Not sure how much the public are allowed        to be involved in running the country, as the ‘Higher Toller’, or the ‘One            who rings the bells loudest’, seems to run the show.

It is quite a country with varied, but much mountainous, landscape. It has been the source of many peoples who have come out of the area and occupied the Mesopotamian area.

Its language is Persian also known as Farsi. It is considered to be a beautiful language according to Wikipedia. There have been many prophets from the area but then it is in the word Farsi. Sounds like ‘far see’.

As I said, Persia sounds like ‘purr sher’. It seems cats are considered typically feminine in character.

https://www.fluther.com/201866/why-are-cats-considered-feminine-and-dogs-considered-masculine/

I like cats and perhaps their purring is beautiful. It is certainly comforting.

The country has been ruled by shahs over many years. This may explain why they have a strategic relationship with Rushah which is currently lead by Putin.

  • Iraq – ‘I Raq’. Seems meaningless to me. However, it could be ‘I Ra q’, that is I Ra’s q or tail (a ‘q’ sounds like queue meaning tail in French).     

It might be ‘I wrack’ as in wrack and ruin. The country has been fought over for millennia, civilizations have come and gone. The region has been known as Mesopotamia or Me so pot am I a.

In other words, I am so potty and the whole world has gone mad as a consequence.

The UK used to control the area because of the oil. The USA has sought to do this for the same reason and invaded Iraq, wrecking the country again.

Madeleine Albright was U.N. ambassador in 1996 for the USA. She said this apparently.

The show’s correspondent Lesley Stahl asked Albright about the effect that U.N. sanctions were having on Iraqi society, saying, “We have heard that a half-million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?”

Albright responded with chilling equanimity: “I think this is a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it.”

From

I gather she was Jewish but raised a catholic. And in Czechoslovakia during WW2. Perhaps this explains things.

  • Israel – ‘Is ra el’, or ‘Is ra el’, i.e. ‘Is Ra’s or God’s angel’. Many people consider the nation special. Many people consider the nation especially annoying. Indeed, the Arab nations have tended to want to destroy Israel

https://www.danielpipes.org/113/arabs-still-want-to-destroy-israel

But it seems not all Arabs in Israel may feel that way.

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/15516/arab-israelis-peace-plan

There are lots of people who equate Israel with the Jews, forgetting that Israel had 12 tribes, only one of which was Judah from which the name Jew derives.

There are lots of people who say that attacking the Jews is anti-Semitic, forgetting that the Semites descend from Shem and are one third approximately of the world’s population. So please, use the word anti-Jewish if you must.

There are lots of people who also forget that there are Jews who say they are Jews but are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan. Many of these are running the USA at the moment and in charge of much of the world’s media, banking and financial institutions etc. etc.

This is why the world is in a teensy, weensy bit of a problem at the moment.

There are many people who blame the Jews for everything forgetting that there are two types of Jews; those who obey God’s laws from the heart and those who don’t.

Discerning this is rather important if you care about the truth.

J

  • Japan – this is Ja pan as in ‘God pan’ from Ja or Ya as in Yahweh. A pan is used for cooking so perhaps a wok, although woks originated in China.

It is called ‘Nippon’ phonetically by the Japanese. This is because you can nip on a bus or train very easily.

It is a beautiful country judging by the online pictures, and consists not just of the main island but thousands of other islands although most are very small.

It has had a rather militaristic history, being run by Sam You Are I. Sadly, because of being isolated from the world for so long and its militaristic society, Japan had a disagreement with the world for a while.

Things seem to have settled down now although the two atomic bombs dropped left a painful legacy.

Despite this, Japan has nuclear reactors. There was an earthquake and Tsunami which damaged the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Whilst the Japanese are very polite, it is rumoured they were not very happy about this and were saying Fuk-u-shima about nuclear power.

Mount Fuji is the second highest mountain in Japan and much photographed. There is some dispute over the meaning of Fuji. Personally, I think it was named after the photographic company as it is much photographed.

  • Jordan – not to be confused with Katie Price in the UK who has a large chest. What she keeps in her chest I wouldn’t know. Precious jewels I suppose. 

However, the King of Jordan probably has lots of chests to keep his wealth in. Although he only has one wife.

The River Jordan flows though Jordan which is why Jordan is called Jordan apparently. Who’d have thought it, eh? I am not aware that Katie Price is called Jordan because of the river.

Wikipedia says it is most plausible that it derives from the Hebrew word Yarad (Hebrew: ירד), meaning “the descender”, reflecting the river’s declivity.

Well, as Katie Price has declivititties, this suggests she might have chosen the name for this reason. After all she has some Jewish blood according to Wikipedia.

The capital of Jordan is apparently A man. We don’t know who this man is unfortunately.

It is not John the Baptist who baptised (immersed) Jesus in the Jordan. This was the river, not Katie Price of course.

This link for more information on Jordan. The country not the river.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan

K

  • Kazakhstan – the country is also considered part of Europe. Please see E is for…..Europe, but note Satan in the name.

  • Kuwait– ‘Queue wait’. You have to stand in line and wait your turn of course. But then that’s Australia’s fault, not Kuwait. The Australian government is rather thick.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/aug/11/im-stuck-expat-in-kuwait-cant-visit-her-seriously-ill-mother-in-australia-due-to-strict-new-rules

It has a lot of crude oil. Whether it has a rude coil I wouldn’t know. I dare say there were a lot of rude words when Iraq invaded in 1990  under Saddam Hussein .

Which had been supported by the USA. And which I gather also sent arms to Iran during the Iran-Iraq war.

Always good to have both side beat the crap out of each other whilst making money from arms sales.

And it did distract them from attacking Israel, as Israel is not much liked by many in the surrounding nations.

So a win-win all round. Except for the inhabitants of Kuwait.

I gather they are currently struggling economically and the Covid 19 nonsense has not helped. I suppose somebody will come and help them but in the meantime they will just have to stand in the queue and wait.

Or Ku-wait

  • Kyrgyzstan – Literally, Kyrgyz means “We are forty”. So here are 40 Stan’s maybe.

Apparently, there is one exclave, the tiny village of Barak lying in Uzbekistan close by to the country. It is rumoured that an US president came from here, but I can’t remember who.

Traditionally the people lived in yurts, a type of tent. Yoghurts tend to be eaten as you might expect. Whether yogs hurt is debatable. Too much of a good thing can upset your stomach.

Ala kachuu is the traditional form of marriage in Kyrgyzstan where the bride to be, willing or not, is abducted. The full term is ‘kys ala kachuu’.

The phrase means “to take a young woman and run away”.

However, there is a more obvious understanding in the English phonetics. ‘Kiss I’ll a catch you’. So you catch your intended, kiss her and all being well she will come with you.

I don’t hold with forcing a girl to be abducted unwillingly, but then some women like to play hard to get and that can be attractive to men. Of course the man may regret his decision once they are married for a while, but marry in haste repent at leisure so they say.

L

  • Laos – According to Wikipedia its name in the Lao language means ‘Lao country’. Which sounds like ‘low country’ although in fact is mainly mountainous and not ‘low’.

The Me-kong River flows through it and is a trans-boundary river. I suppose this is like the transgender movement and like most rivers it is free to call itself what it likes.

They have festivals including ‘Bun Pha Wet’ and ‘Bun Nam’. In English we would calls bun fights. No doubt a good time is had by all.

  • Lebanon – This is ‘the ban on’ but ban on what it is not clear. If they had banned artificial fertilizer then the city might not have suffered the dreadful explosion when ammonium nitrate in storage at a quayside warehouse in Beirut, the capital, blew up.

I gather that modern Lebanon was founded in the early eighteenth century by Maronites who look to the pope, and Druze who look rather confused as far as I can tell.

Not to be confused with Macronites who look to Emmanuel Macron as their saviour or the Jews who look to the God of Moses among others.

Unless they are Jews who say they are Jews but are not and look to Satan. Many of these are running the USA at the moment as I mentioned.

Lebanon is famed for its Cedars of Lebanon. There are not many left after being cut down over the centuries. They are now protected and reforestation is taking place, so that’s good.

But they do have a serious garbage or rubbish issue. So does the rest of world though. It is called lies, damn lies and Covid 19 is going to kill us all garbage.

But it is waking people up to the various matters in the world which need to be taken in hand, so again that’s good.

M

  • Malaysia – this is said to be the home of the lazier, the bad lazier as mal is bad in French. Some say this is unfair, some say it’s reasonable, at least up to a point

https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/491188

This is an outsider’s view.

https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/abroad/generation-emigration/10-things-i-ve-learned-from-10-years-living-in-malaysia-1.2826766

This used to be Malaya however, as it was the layers of ma or my in French. This is relatively low lying by comparison to the Hi-Malayas which are high, a great deal higher of course.

Perhaps it would be better to go back to the earlier name.

Malaysia might be ‘Ma lays here’, as in ‘mother lays here’. Most mothers work very hard.

And sometimes they need a lay down and rest. Make sure they get it, won’t you.

The capital city is a Lumpy Koala. Why it should be lumpy or whether there are or were Koala bears is unclear.

However, I gather the city has the Titiwangsa Mountains. So easy to go from the city to the Titi. Tities are lumps I suppose. Thus lumpy now makes sense.

As to Koala bears it seems there are none. But there is the sun bear which has some similar traits.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_bear

Perhaps this is the forebear of the Koala bear.

  • Maldives – these are islands, but the name suggests bad diving.

However, it looks as though this is not the case.

http://maldivesdives.com/en/

As the islands are very low lying they have been considered under threat from sea level rises. The authorities have been saying for some time they fear the islands will be swamped soon. Wikipedia says this was said in 1988 and ‘within 30 years’.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maldives

I gather this has not yet occurred.

            The Wikipedia article on the country indicates that

In 2020, a three-year study at the University of Plymouth found that as tides move sediment to create higher elevation, the islands, and also Tuvalu and Kiribati, may rise instead of sink.

That’s a bit of bummer then. Wikipedia says

Environmental issues other than sea level rise include bad waste disposal and beach theft. Although the Maldives are kept relatively pristine and little litter can be found on the islands, no good waste disposal sites exist. Most trash from Malé and other resorts is simply dumped at the Thilafushi landfill.

As I keep trying to point out, this is the real issue, pollution. Lets’ get a grip and deal with it and not be so silly as to push the ‘carbon dioxide will kill us all’ agenda.

Toxic poisons might though.

  • Mongolia – ‘Mon goalie here’. Useful if you are playing football to have a goalie. Its capital is Ulaanbaatar which sounds better. I gather it is now simply referred to ‘khot’ meaning ‘city’.

But it is not hot, but the coldest capital in the world. It can be known as UB. It should be noted that K is short for Kelvin among other things. Kelvin in this case relates to temperature.

So it is reasonable to say “UB or k-hot UB, that is the question”.

To which the answer is “It B jolly cold it B”.

I see that ovoo are sacred shrines, essentially piles of rocks or poles of wood stacked neatly.

By Popolon – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0,
https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=44640426

Ovoos are often found at the top of mountains and in high places, like mountain passes.

And

When travelling, it is the custom to stop and circle an ovoo three times, moving clockwise, in order to have a safer journey. Usually, rocks are picked up from the ground and added to the pile. Also, one may leave offerings in the form of sweets, money, milk, or vodka.

The same thing happens in the UK of course. On top of mountains one will also find heaps of stones sometimes neatly arranged as a shrine where walkers can shelter out of the worst of the driving rain and wind.

If they have a mind to, they will add stones to the heap. They often leave offerings in the form of sweets, fruit and fizzy drinks.

However, by the time others arrive the gods have usually consumed the contents and left the chocolate wrappers, orange peel and empty cans behind.

As you can gather, gods are not very tidy and have not caught up with the trend to recycle.

N

  • Nepal – this indicates that you will find no friends or ‘pals’ here.

However, there are those that think it means ‘nipple’. This would make sense from all the peaks of the Hi-malayas referred to earlier. 

According to Gopalarājvamshāvali, the genealogy of ancient Gopala dynasty compiled c. 1380s, Nepal is named after Nepa the cowherd, the founder of the Nepali scion of the Abhiras. In this account, the cow that issued milk to the spot, at which Nepa discovered the Jyotirlinga of Pashupatināth upon investigation, was also named Ne.

Well, milk comes from cows’ teats or nipples, so this all makes sense.

Kathmandu is the capital although I knew it as Katmandu. There are a lot of stray dogs in the city, so this doesn’t not make sense, otherwise it would be Dogmandu.

However, cats are increasing in Nepal so perhaps someone has seen the light and seeks to remedy the problem.

https://www.hartnepal.org/animals/index.html

Mount Everest lies on the border of Nepal with China. One would not wish to rest here for ever I don’t suppose, but is a suitable name for the highest point of the Him-a-layers where the Most High God lies down for a rest.

And Mount Everest is the most high mountain in the world.

  • North Korea – The northern part of a once united country. Not a good place to be it would seem, and no place to start a career, despite the name.

Sounds like Chorea, a type of involuntary movement or dance.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chorea

It says ‘Not to be confused with Korea’. Mind you, I wonder how many of the North Koreans want to march up and down to the sound of military music.

Life seems rather basic for many in the country. Still, much of what the west values is worthless. Here’s an interesting link.

I am aware that persecution of Christians goes on in the country via the organisation Open Doors.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Christians_in_North_Korea

It is not the only country of course, persecution goes on of all sorts of people and Christians even suffer persecution the UK and the USA.

North Korea is formally the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, but is not so much a democracy but a totalitarian dictatorship.    

The current beloved leader according to Kim Jong-un is Kim Jong-un. His father, the previous beloved leader, was his father, Kim Jong-il.

His father is dead of course, and hadn’t been very well. But then it was in his name, Kim Jong-ill (sic). Or Kim Jong was sick, therefore he was il, Kim Jong-il.

O

  • Oman – Where the O’Men come from, originally from Ireland. Whether there are any O’ Women is uncertain as they can’t be seen. If they are hiding under burkas you can’t tell anyway.

Officially it is the Sultanate of Oman. What the Sultan ate we don’t know, but probably fish and dates judging by Wikipedia article.

Its capital is Muscat. This may be a type of feline animal or a wine.

If the latter then it may be a complaint about the dates. These complaints are made when a man has a date with a woman in a burka and finds out too late she is not a woman after all.

Covid 19 seems like a good excuse for some people to wear burkas. Apparently the picture below is of a traditional mask for a woman in Oman. I should think Darth Vader would be proud of it.

I gather Oman is one of two regions in the Middle East that have a variant of bullfighting. However, I say we all have to fight a load of bull nowadays with all the bull from governments etc. on Covid 19.

This is probably more dangerous than fighting a real live bull, but I don’t fancy testing this theory.

P

  • Pakistan – Also known as ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan’. Its capital city is Islamabad. Quite why they should think Islam is good when the capital city clearly says it is bad is beyond me. Look, Islam-a-bad, it’s in the name.

Very sadly, an anagram of Pakistan is ‘kip Satan’. This suggests Satan sleeps there as to ‘have a kip’ is slang in the UK for ‘have a sleep’.

This may explain the problems with Pakistan over the years and why Islam-a-bad, or at least exploited by bad people. But then all good things get spoiled by Satan who is very, very bad, to put it mildly.

Its main river is the Indus. Hence you will find a lot of Indus-try in the region. There is a wide diversity of trees in the country, although how many are by the Indus I don’t know.

But not a lot as far as I can tell from some photographs.

Pakistan seems to have suffered dreadfully from political assassinations.

https://www.thenews.com.pk/print/388937-pakistani-political-leaders-who-were-assassinated

Corruption has been an issue too. But then as I said Satan sleeps there in the country. Although he seems to be awake not asleep as he is a murderer and liar and has been from the beginning.

However, you will find Satan and his cronies all over the world, not just Pakistan. He likes walking the earth and causing mayhem wherever he can.

  • Philippines – ‘Philip pines’. Does he? What for or who for? A corruption free government probably.

Its capital is Manila. What the Man is ila from we don’t know. But probably malnutrition.

Or vaccines of course. And this is not just the Covid 19 vaccines.

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2019/05/03/719037789/botched-vaccine-launch-has-deadly-repercussions

Public trust and the COVID‐19 vaccination campaign: lessons from the Philippines as it emerges from the Dengvaxia controversy

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8426681/

There is a heading ‘LEAVE VACCINATION TO THE MEDICAL EXPERTS’.

Yeah, right. Let the medical experts take the vaccines. Let us check they are taking the right poisons, not saline placebos. Then we can wait. I am happy to wait decades to see if they work.

There is misinformation about the vaccines. Here is a misinformation site.

It is authored by Yvonne Su and Sivakamy Thayaalan. They are young, so perhaps it is merely their youth that makes them so dumb.

Dr. Yvonne Su is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Equity Studies at York University. She is an expert on post-disaster recovery, forced migration and poverty and inequality.

Sivakamy Thayaalan is a research assistant at York University. She holds a Master’s in Political Science from the University of Western Ontario.

Or perhaps it is their qualifications which have nothing to do with what we call science or chemistry. Probably both.

Q

  • Qatar – this is a peninsular. Qatar is like quarter, hence the name. Like the Empty Quarter further south.

However scholars dispute this meaning. Some say it was Gitar like guitar where old gits play guitars. In the Gutar by the side of the road which is another possible meaning.

Article 88 of Qatar’s criminal code declares that the penalty for adultery is 100 lashes

From

These lashes are false eye lashes which the adulterers have to wear. Makes them look rather silly of course, and hopefully they won’t do it again.

Masks are also used to make people look silly. Here is an example.

This is Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani with the alleged U.S. President Joe Biden in January 2022.

Joe Biden doesn’t need a mask to look silly though.

Please not the Emir has a white mask and Joe a black mask. Obviously Black Masks Matter. Joe is wearing a mask of the beast so we get the point.

I have said before that George Soros is really George Black. Joe and George must be related.

S

  • Saudi Arabia – ‘The Arab Kingdom of the house of Saud.’ ‘Sau’ sounds like sow as in female pig, but as the people are typically Muslim they don’t eat pigs so that makes no sense.

The name referred to above ‘Al-Mamlakah al-ʿArabīyah’ is apparently the transliteration from the Arabic المملكة العربية السعودية

Arabic is of course a biro that God uses, that is A Ra Bic. Whether or not one can write Arabic properly with a biro is debatable. I rather doubt it myself, as per the link below, but perhaps someone can let me know.

Here is a picture from the Wikipedia link showing U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, 21 May 2017.

It should be noted the men are touching a ball. I don’t know who it belongs to. However, men do like touching their balls and having photographs of the event.

Melania look mildly amused but whether she is also touching their ball I can’t tell.

  • Singapore – ‘Singer poor’. Well, they may have been poor but not any longer. Its capital is, well, Singapore. It consists of one main island and a lot of smaller ones.

Stamford Raffles set up the established Singapore as an entrepôt trading post of the British Empire in 1819. It is believed he did this by selling raffle tickets.

It was a gamble of course, but it paid off. And now Singapore is very wealthy. It should be renamed Singarich.

  • South Korea – the opposite of North Korea of course. Where you can make a career of course as it is a democracy with a president.

I heard that one of the presidents was called Kim Die Young. He was 85 years old when he died, so that seems an unsuitable name.

They say only the good die young so perhaps he was bad. But he was said to be the equivalent of Nelson Mandela so that makes no sense. Perhaps I heard wrong and he was young at heart.

The capital city is Seoul which is the life and seoul of the party. This could be Rhee’s party, Chun’s party, or People Power Party. What these parties are like I don’t know, but I hope they are fun.

South Korea is technically still at war with North Korea after the Korean War from 1950-1953 which saw so much loss of life and destruction.

The two countries ‘claim complete sovereignty over the entire peninsula and outlying islands’ according to Wikipedia. Well, that seems obvious, but I think what Wikipedia means as they both claim complete sovereignty independently of the other country.

As it is written ‘You crave what you do not have; you kill and covet, but are unable to obtain it. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask.’

They have however been seeking reconciliation over the years. Nevertheless, the situation has been tense due to North Korean Miss Isle tests. What this young lady has to do with anything I am not sure.

Indeed, what they are testing her on I really don’t know.

Possibly mathematics due to South Korean government’s pledge to “definitely join” the Proliferation Security Initiative.

You see the Proliferation Security Initiative has to do with preventing the shipment of Weapons of Maths Destruction. At least I think that’s what it means.

  • Sri Lanka – It was once Ceylon from ‘say lon’ as opposed to ‘don’t say lon’.

It is an island, a sort of pear shape. Its capital city is Colombo. What Peter Falk had to say about this is not recorded. Possibly “Oh, there’s just one more thing…”.

In 2004 I gather an Asian Sue Nami killed 30,000 people in Sri Lanka. That’s pretty good going for one woman. In fact she killed over 200,000 people by drowning them I gather.

Of course there are other murderers about, including those who stick poisons into people via needles and syringes. These include vaccines. It is likely they have killed many more than 200, 000 but the authorities are not bothered about that as the deaths are not always obvious.

Anyway, poisoning can be slow, so that other things can be blamed instead.

There are various ethnic groups. These include:

The Sinhalese who are the majority of the nation’s population. I assume they may find sinning easy.

Then there are the Tamils, who are a large minority group. They may be ill a lot.

Then there are the Moors who may be murderers like Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, the Burghers who started a fast food chain, the Malays (see Malaysia), the Chinese (see China), and the indigenous Vedda.

The Vedda are believed to be so named as they were always talking about de vedda, and vedda it was going to rain or not.

Which would normally be regarding the monsoon, which arrives sooner or later. And why it is mon-soon of course, as they are always looking forward to rain which is needed for crops to grow and water to drink.

  • Syria – where the syrious come from as they take matters syriously. This is no joke.

Indeed, John McEnroe is said to have exclaimed when he spoke to the umpire at Wimbledon ‘You cannot be Syrious! I am not sure where the umpire came from, but I am pretty sure it wasn’t Syria.

It is possible the syrious came via Sirius, the Dog Star, the brightest star in the night sky.

Apparently, the area was included in the ancient land of Assyria. This was where serious asses came from.

I understand from Wikipedia it is the only country that ‘politically espouses the Arab nationalist ideology known as Ba’athism’. Its aims are to have baths of course. Aims bath is an anagram so perfectly logical.

Cleanliness is next to godliness they say. But no good cleaning the outside and not the inside. So said Jesus to the Pharisees.

“Now then,” said the Lord, “you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.”

By the way He said this in Israel which is next door to Syria.

The country is home to various ethnic and religious groups and has been in a multi-sided civil war since 2011. Huge numbers of people have been displaced.

This is a very serious matter and it is no joke.

Vanessa Beeley, an independent journalist explains some of what is going on.



T

  • Tajikistan– there is a lot of discussion over the meaning of the name. According to its Wikipedia link It is covered by mountains of the Pamir range, and most of the country is over 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) above sea level.

As an anagram of its name is “I Janka tits” and mountains can be considered like the breasts of the earth this is a possibility.

An alternative is “Jainist kat”. Jainism comes from India not so far away so there may be a relationship.

However, tajine or tagine as in the Arabic cooking pot may be more appropriate. Wikipedia says

The term “Tajik” itself ultimately derives from the Middle Persian tāzīk, the Turkic rendition of the Arabic ethnonym Tayy, denoting a large tribe of Arabs who emigrated to Transoxiana in the 7th century.

They would no doubt have bought their cooking pots and as the region is typically hot and dry like an oven, the link is possible.

Of course it may simply be that ‘Tajik is tan’, i.e Tajik is tan or brown. The land is after all typically dry and desertified in many parts. And the people are of a tan colour.

I’m sorry to say that Satan must live here too as his name is part of the name Tajikistan.

  • Thailand – ‘Tie land’. Bit like Poundland in the UK where things are supposed to cost no more than a pound. And where they wear ties, obviously.

“Tieland for the Ties.” Is a common cry in the adverts for the country. It refers to it here.

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/where-is-siam.html

So come and buy a tie here if you wish. I am sure you get other things too like diarrhoea. But you can get that anywhere when your diet changes and you are not used to it.

Bangkok is its capital city, I am told this is where men run into each other accidently and shout ‘Bangkok’ in agony.

Phuket is another town. I am told this is where men run into each other accidently and exclaim something else. I have not been told what they shout for some reason.

  • Timor-Leste – Tim or lest, lest what we don’t know. Indeed, who is Tim? However, in reality it is Timor of the east from the Portuguese.

I gather in a language of the island, which is the eastern half of the other bit (on the west of course), the name is ‘Lorosa’e’ meaning ‘Rising sun’. Makes sense as the sun rises in the east. And you would appreciate this most across the sea in the morning.

Lorosa’e is also an anagram of ‘lo arose ‘. But then split Lorosa’e into ‘Lo rosa’e’ and it is not much different.

Dili is its capital. Di relates to father as in daddy and Li as in angel. Daddy’s angel. Here are two of daddies angels from Wikipedia entry.

By Graham Crumb – on Flickr

Dill the herb is delicate aromatic and adds a lovely flavour to fish dishes. Dili is a port so fish would be important. All makes good sense to me.        

  • Turkey – the country is also considered part of Europe. Please see E is for…..Europe
  • Turkmenistan – simply a place where there are Turkmen or men who are Turks. These presumably would have come from Turkey.

Again they are tan in colour so ‘Turk men is tan’. All very simple.

It is a temperate desert zone with a dry continental climate, so rather brown or tan overall.

Its capital city is Ashgabat. It used to be Ashkhabad phonetically in English before 1991. This reminds me of Ashkenazi. Perhaps this people group came from here originally.

Ashgabat literally means “city of love” or “city of devotion”. Personally it just sounds bad to me. Whether it is bat or bad I am not sure. In Germany where there are a lot of Bad places and has had a lot of batty people over the years, perhaps there is a relationship.

And the Ashkenazi Jews do live in Germany of course, among other places, including about a half of the total estimated population in the world in the USA.

I gather that the Ashkenazi intermarry a lot. It is known that this can lead to peculiarities in people.

This may explain some of the problems with the USA today as Joe Biden’s cabinet has 25% who claim Jewish ancestry. Things aren’t going too well I gather.

U

  • United Arab Emirates (UAE) – or al-ʾImārāt al-ʿArabīyah al-Muttaḥidah as pronounced in the Arabic. Meaning possibly ‘Al, I’m a rat, Al, a buyer, Al mutter hider.’ Quite.

‘Mutter hider’ is presumably the hiding of mothers, among others, under the burqa. Though how you can tell if these are mothers is anybody’s guess. Could be the Carry On team from ‘Carry On up the Khyber.’

The United Arab Emirates is an elective monarchy formed from a federation of seven emirates, consisting of Abu Dhabi (the capital), Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain.

I gather you can get flogged or stoned in the UAE. They flog or sell a lot of things in Dubai. No doubt they may even flog a dead horse.

However, Khalid Mohammed Sharif Al Awadhi, the director of Dubai Municipality’s food control department assures us that he was 100 per cent certain there were no meat products contaminated with horse meat in the emirate.

From

You can get stoned for various offenses but not for drinking or using alcohol for which you can be flogged. So should you get stoned from drinking alcohol you cannot be stoned, if you see what I mean.

But you can presumably flog alcohol, but at the risk of being flogged. This may seem confusing.

I gather that Kissing in certain pubic places is illegal. I should think so too, whatever next! Mmm?…..Oh, I do beg your pardon, Kissing in certain public places is illegal.

Seems a bit harsh. I wonder what sort of kissing? I mean, what is a kiss anyway?

I note that an anagram of United Arab Emirates is ‘Satan buried meatier’. I wonder if they know?

  • Uzbekistan – Us Becky’s tan. As to who Becky is scholars are unsure. It is possible that she was Rebekah, the wife of Isaac of Old Testament fame. She obviously had been out in the sun and got rather browned off with something.

Its capital is Tashkent. This is where the Kent’s have tashes or taches as in moustaches. But not Clark Kent as he is souper man and does not have a moustache. Look, if he did he would get soup in this moustache.

Any way the country contains part of the Aral Sea.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uzbekistan

It has become desiccated and desecrated by over extraction of water as a result of soviet irritation projects so I heard. Pollution by the pesticides and fertilizers has destroyed its ecosystems. A complete disaster due to greedy people who didn’t care.

But is any of it our fault too I wonder? Does our greed ultimately lead to others exploiting God’ good resources?

Yes.

I see there are some glimmers of hope for restoration of the sea. Perhaps Covid 19 has helped us wake up to such things. Mmm…of course, silly of me not to see this earlier.

Covid is an anagram of ‘C void’, that sounds like a sea void (of life).

I suggest we humble ourselves before God and examine our hearts so that matters are put right.

V

  • Vietnam – sound like‘Ve ate nam’. Perhaps nam is a type of bread, like nan bread. It seems that Amman was its name until 1945 according to Wikipedia. And that is ‘am man’. So maybe men lived here. Well, that seems obvious, they must have done.

Could it be they ate men? That is cannibalism so I hope not.

But is odd that Jesus talks about himself as the bread of life and He could be eaten. But then he was talking about His words as these give life.

After all, our souls are made up of words and it matters what our souls ‘eat’.

But I don’t think ‘R’ souls eat, that doesn’t sound nice at all.

Interestingly, ‘nam’ means male in Vietnamese according to Google Translate. The reverse of ‘nam’ is ‘man’.

Annoy is its capital city. Why it should annoy I can’t imagine.

However, I see they use insects in their cuisine. And dogs although the later tradition is dying out. I think one would have to be barking mad to eat a dog.

Perhaps if you wolf it down you wouldn’t mind though. But I think I’ll pass on that.

Y

  • Yemen – Another place of men where ‘Ye men’ come from as in ‘Ye Olde England’ etc. Again, whether there are any Yewomen is uncertain as they can’t be seen. If they are hiding under burkas you can’t tell anyway.

In England we have Yeomen but no Yeowomen as far as I am aware. Except perhaps in the Yeo Valley in Somerset.

Yemen has had quite a history. In more recent times I see the following in Wikipedia.

After the invasion of Kuwait crisis in 1990, Yemen’s president opposed military intervention from non-Arab states. As a member of the United Nations Security Council for 1990 and 1991, Yemen abstained on a number of UNSC resolutions concerning Iraq and Kuwait and voted against the “…use of force resolution.” The vote outraged the U.S. Saudi Arabia expelled 800,000 Yemenis in 1990 and 1991 to punish Yemen for its opposition to the intervention.

A civil war has been on-going since 2014 between the government which I understand is predominately controlled by Sunni Muslims and the Houthis which are predominately Shia Muslims.

As a consequence the country is suffering terribly from famine and disease, including a cholera outbreak due to the breakdown in the water supply.

The US has intervened in the region but nothing has changed. Under Joe Biden’s administration the situation seems to have worsened.

https://theintercept.com/2022/03/16/yemen-war-biden-us-support-saudi-arabia/

Meanwhile the people suffer terribly. The people of Yemen, men, women and children. They are not the only ones in the world, but nevertheless this is grievous and vile.

I say what is an example of the evil and greed in the world? Yemen. It is true and I say Amen.

He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

Doolittle Raid or Tokyo raid; 18 April 1942

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

18th April, 2022

This was a U.S. air force road on Tokyo (no surprises there) and other targets on the main island of Japan, Honshu. It was the first attack of the war by the U.S.A. on the archipelago of Japan. You can read about it here.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doolittle_Raid

This says The raid was planned by, led by, and named after Lieutenant Colonel James Doolittle…

This was 80 years ago today of course. Interestingly perhaps, as there were 16 bombers used in the raid and each had a crew of five there were also 80 crew members in total.

Not so interestingly perhaps is that the number 16 is my birthday. But not in April.

The unusual feature of the raid was the use of normally land based bombers (B-25B Mitchell) to fly from an aircraft carrier, the first time this had been done by the U.S. This was from the USS Hornet.

The map below extracted from the Wikipedia link shows the plan of attack.



Purpose of the raid

To attack the morale of the Japanese and boost the morale of the Americans in the USA. Don’t forget not all Americans live in the USA, although it seems many in the USA seem to think there is no one outside of the States

Doolittle recounted in his autobiography that the raid was intended to bolster American morale and to cause the Japanese to begin doubting their leadership: “An attack on the Japanese homeland would cause confusion in the minds of the Japanese people and sow doubt about the reliability of their leaders. … Americans badly needed a morale boost.”



42 crops up again

For those interested in 42 the ultimate answer to the ultimate question, here is something interesting.

The 16 bombers which took part have the numbers 40-2 at start of each serial no., i.e. forty two!

And the only aircraft to survive after being interned in Russia was 40-2242!

And from which you can get the number 2022, the current year.



Aircraft and crew losses

They all took off safely, but one crashed before reaching Japan. All other aircraft crashed after bombing trying to reach landing fields in China, apart from one which made it to Russia where it was interned with the crew.

Total crew casualties: 3 KIA: 2 off the coast of China, 1 in China; 8 POW: 3 executed, 1 died in captivity, 4 repatriated.



Damage caused

The physical damage was slight, but the psychological damage was great.

The attack was in many ways similar to Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbour with the element of surprise.

The raid shook staff at Japanese Imperial General Headquarters. Japan attacked territories in China to prevent similar shuttle bombing runs. High command withdrew substantial air force resources from supporting offensive operations in order to defend the home islands; two carriers were diverted to the Alaskan island invasion to prevent them from being used as bomber bases and could not be used in the Midway operations. Thus, the raid’s most significant strategic accomplishment was that it compelled the Japanese high command into ordering a very inefficient disposition of their forces, and poor decision-making due to fear of attack, for the rest of the war.

Also

The fact that medium, normally land-based bombers carried out the attack confused the IJN’s high command. This confusion and the knowledge that Japan was now vulnerable to air attack strengthened Yamamoto’s resolve to destroy the American carrier fleet, which was not present in the Pearl Harbor Attack, resulting in a decisive Japanese defeat at the Battle of Midway.



Consequences in China

What is very grievous is that huge numbers of Chinese were killed as revenge by the Japanese army. Even if the arguments over the Chinese Communist Party’s involvement were true, there still remains considerable evidence of Japanese troops committing massacres, and consistent with some soldiers and officers in the army committing atrocities elsewhere.

The city of Nancheng, population of around 50,000, was laid waste, razed to the ground.

The war in China is easily forgotten in the West, but the numbers killed were immense, and the destruction enormous. You may care to look at this link for more info on what went on.

https://factsanddetails.com/asian/ca67/sub426/entry-5340.html

All this is a consequence of treating human beings as mere cattle, and is a result of the theory of evolution which says in effect we are no more than a collection of atoms, rather than precious soul in a physical body.

I will look at the evolution/creation issues in due course, but there is already plenty of stuff out there already.



Finally

Amusingly and anagram of USS Hornet is ‘hurts nose’. The USS Hornet ‘stung’ the enemy with the bombers launched from its flight deck.

A sting even from a hornet will not normally kill you, whether on the nose or not. But it caused a serious reaction in Japan from which ultimately it did not recover.

The Doolittle Raid did little physical damage but a lot of psychological damage and proved critical to the Battle of Midway later in June, under 2 months away.

So we can say that the Doolittle Raid was both a Didlittle raid and a Didlot raid!

I wonder what this might be equivalent to today. In Scotland I see Nicola Sturgeon has been told off by police for forgetting to wear a mask, albeit briefly.

As opposed to forgetting to wear a brief, albeit maskly.

I can’t see that as being highly significant to Scotland turning a corner, but you never know.

As regards the U.S.A. if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

Raid on Pearl harbour 7th December 1941

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

7th December, 2021


Interestingly, Tora is ‘to ra’. This is what tigers do, they roar or ra-aah!

As regards the film, I thought it very good, full of action. A film critic,

James Berardinelli, said it was “rare for a feature film to attain the trifecta of entertaining, informing, and educating.”

The website Rotten Tomatoes, assessed it on some limited reviews as follows:

“Tora! Tora! Tora! is scrupulously accurate and lays out of the tragedy of Pearl Harbor with intricate detail, but the film’s clinical approach to the sound and fury signifies little feeling.”

Personally, I am not too bothered about feelings on their own, and it matters to me that a film is accurate if it is not merely fantasy. Certainly confusing facts and fantasy cause a lot of problems in our world if we don’t have a solid foundation of history.

However, having said that, I am going to proceed to offer my take on the proceedings in my usual wacky approach. You know, ‘Let him who has an ear to hear, let him hear.’ I hope it will make you laugh and think. I have used the Wikipedia links as a basis.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tora!_Tora!_Tora!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_on_Pearl_Harbor

Please note I do not intend any disrespect to those who died or fought, merely to show the absurdity of war, how mad things can be, even if it is only how one can use language. After all, it is propaganda and morale that count most to win battles and wars, especially wars of words.

1          Background to conflict

It revolves round some families as all conflicts do. There were the Ja’s Pan people, who made a dance around a song of things, as opposed to making a song and dance about things.

There were the China people who were rather fragile and delicate like a lotus blossom.

And there were the Amerrycannes who were usually laid back, although some of them did have the annoying habit of ‘borrowing’ land from the Indy Genius people in their own country. They have tended to hold onto the land for rather a long time having ‘borrowed’ it.

1.1      Diplomatic background

The thing is that Ja’ Pan people decided, or at least certain ‘superior’ types  decided, the China people had one or two things that the Ja’s Pan people needed, or at least the ‘superior’ types needed.

So they decided to go and ask the China people if they could have one or two things. If they didn’t agree then they would beat them up until they agreed which seemed fair to the Ja’s Pan people, or at least the ‘superior’ types.

Anyway, the long and the short of it was the China people did not agree, so the Ja’s Pan people beat them up.

In China the Ja’s Pan people were having a smashing time, the Chinese weren’t of course. After all, if you have your best China smashed, let alone your worst, this is a bit upsetting to say the least.

The Amerrycannes thought this was unfair of Ja’s Pan people, and wrote the them in no uncertain terms that they had better stop or else. This letter or note was called the Hell note.

In essence this said ‘If you don’t stop we will give you hell’.

There some scholars who disagree and say that the note was actually the Hull note and the Amerrycannes were telling the Ja’s Pan people they would go to Hull.

This could have been Hull in Massive Chew Sets, New England, or possibly Hull in Yourk Shyer, England (the old or earlier one). None of these seems likely as neither town would have wanted their china smashed.

1.2      Military planning

Ja’s Pan people, at least the ‘superior’ types thought it none of the Amerrycannes  business and decided they needed to be taught a lesson. So they planned a surprise attack against a certain Pearl, a lady who could be found in her arbour. This was when she wasn’t sitting ‘On a loo loo’.

By way of explanation, the loo loo was a two-seater outdoor privy. As the weather was normally good on the island on which she lived this was never much of a problem if she got caught short.

The Ja’s Pan people lived on an island at some distance from the island where Pearl lived, which was called ‘Ha! Why?’ Because of this, they would need to take a number of ships, including some Hair Craft Carriers which had hair dressers on board to cut the sailors hair.

The sailors, or crew, always liked to have their hair neat and tidy which is why they had crew cuts of course. In any event, their ‘superiors’ would have objected if they didn’t and would threaten to commit Hairy Kiry if the sailors didn’t comply.

The top ‘superior’ was the Umpireor High Row High Two. He made the final decision to attack as the Umpireor’s decision was final.

The admirable Hammer my toe was the Umperial Ja’s Pan’ Navy’s leader who was in overall command of the assault.

1.3      Objectives

As previously mentioned, these were to attack Pearl in her arbour. There were a number of bottleships in her arbour, which were ships in a bottle of course. These were to be smashed up and, if present, the three Hair Craft Carriers that the Amerrycannes had.

2          Approach and attack

2.1      Submarines

I gather Ja’s Pan people utilised some midges to try and sting Pearl, but it seems they didn’t reach her or do any real harm. If you are going to use midges then you need a whole swarm to be really annoying.

Some scholars say it wasn’t midges, but midgets. The Ja’s Pan people tend to be on the small side so these must have been very small.

2.2      Japanese declaration of war

In essence they didn’t, they just attacked like Germany did to Poland in 1939. After all, if you are going to do a surprise attack, why tell your enemy first? Where is the surprise in that?

2.3      First wave composition

The first wave was to have the following:

89 Kate’s. These were ‘bummers’ who could do bumming raids. They would attack beach bums for example. In this case they were to smash the bottleships and Hair Craft Carriers if present.

51 Val’s. These were dive ‘bummers’ who were prepared to go under water. They were used to ‘extreme hair styling’ where you did under water hairdos.

43 zero or nought fighters. This was rather confusing as if there were zero fighters, how could there also be 43 of them?

This wave was led bya man with a rather rude sounding name, Mister Fuch Ida.

Of those who were scheduled to take part it seems 6 did not as they got stuck in lunch. Seems a poor excuse to me.

The attack achieved was a complete surprise to the Amerrycannes, although a warning was given over the radio “Hair raid Pearl’s arbor. This is not drill.”

Seeing as the Ja’s Pan people were carrying hair dressing equipment, such as combs, razors etc, this seems blindingly obvious. Why should they be carrying drills?

2.4      Second wave composition

The second wave was to have the following:

108 Kate’s. These were to attack hair crafters, such as barbers who looked after Pearl and her crew, as well as the hangers on which the hair crafters hung their coats.

Some of the hair crafters with their hangers (presumably with the coats hanging) were at Barbers Point. This proves how accurate this post is.

78 Val’s. These were to attack any hair craft carriers and bruisers.

35 zero or nought fighters. This was rather less confusing as there were less zero fighters. Nevertheless, a zero is a zero however you look at it, and adding lots of zeros still makes zero. This is simple math people (maths if you speak proper English).

Look, this is my post, you don’t have to read it if you don’t want to.

This wave was led by a man called Mr Shimmer Sarky. He has a moustache like Adolf Hitler. That explains things.

Unless it was Charlie Chaplin, of course, but he did slapstick, not slap people with sticks etc.

2.5      Possible third wave

Did not happen for various reasons. Primarily because the Amerrycannes  were getting wise by then that they were being attacked.

Unlike Covid 19 today where there are lots more waves because the Amerrycannes have taken a lot, lot longer to get wise. Waves of Covid 19 will keep coming until they do get wise and fight back properly.

Still, a start has been made, so that’s good.

3          Ships lost or damaged

3.1      Bottleships

Arizona  – this belonged to a Rear Admirable I. Sack ze Kid, and was badly smashed.

Oklahoma: this had a cap size but what size that was is not stated.

West Virginia: this was badly smashed and thrown into the water and had to be retrieved later in a sorry state. Whether the state of West Virginia is in a sorry state, you tell me.

California: this was badly smashed and thrown into the water and had to be retrieved later in a sorry state. The state of California is in a sorry state, you don’t need to tell me.

Nevada: this was badly smashed and thrown on the beach. This was not kind as people can cut their feet on the beach. It had to be retrieved later in a sorry state. Whether the state of Nevada is in a sorry state, you tell me.

However, I see there are some great beaches in Nevada despite being a long way from the sea.

Pennsylvania – this belonged to an admirable husband called E. Kammel.  I hope he was not an ancestor of Kammel Harris, president of vice in the USA at the moment.

This was getting a dry ‘dock’ or cut with Cassin and Downes. It was slightly smashed.

Tennessee: somewhat smashed.

Maryland: somewhat smashed.

3.2      Ex-bottleship (target/AA training ship)

Utah: this had a cap size but again what size that was is not stated. I assume as an ex-bottleship it had lost its bottle and no longer had the courage to fight much.

3.3      Bruisers

Helena: One of the bouncers protecting the bottleships, but female of course. Got one in the eye and bruised.

Raleigh: One of the bouncers protecting the bottleships. Got one in the eye and bruised. Yes, raleigh it did.

Honolulu: This is the toilet that Pearl was on at the time she was attacked. This was apparently near the miss; I assume this miss refers to Helena rather than Pearl, but I may be mistaken. It had its lights broken in the struggle.

3.4      Des Troyers

These were some troyers or triers who tried hard to do the right thing.

Cassin: in for a dry ‘dock’ cut with Downes and Pennsylvania. Suffered burns and had to have reconstruction work with plastic surgery.

Downes: in for a dry ‘dock’ cut with Cassin and Pennsylvania. Suffered burns and had to have reconstruction work with plastic surgery. Understood to have suffered from Downes Syndrome, and the reconstruction work was a great improvement.

Helm: This was underway to West Loch as might be expected with a name like that. He was injured by a couple of near misses when a couple of Kates or Vals were around. That’s women for you, lash out even if it’s not your fault (look, don’t blame me, that’s what it sounds like).

Shaw: badly damaged whilst having a dry ‘dock’ cut in a floating chair. I assume many of the crew were on shore, but not on Shaw at the time.

3.5      Auxiliaries

Also known as ‘hanger’s on’. See Barber’s Point earlier.

Oglala:  this was Mein Laier, a German visitor. Rather like Mein Führer as Adolf Hitler was called. He was injured by a blow to Helena, and had a cap size but yet again what size that was is not stated.

Vestal – possibly a vestal virgin or merely wearing a vest, it is not clear. Damaged and thrown on to the beach.

Curtiss – he was a tender, rather delicate, C-plane who suffered some bruises including when a Hair Craft man fell on him.

Sotoyomo – one of the thugs near Pearl’s arbour. Suffered collateral injuries from Shaw. So much so, that he sunk onto his bottom. With a name like that I assume he was a spy.

YFD-2 – not another Covid 19 variant, but a back yard floating on the water where you could get your hair cut or docked. In was damaged by bums and sunk.

Editor’s note: There is a Y453F Covid 19 variant, possibly another back yard.

4          Salvage

It took quite a bit of work to clear up the mess left by Ja’s Pan’s people. Lifting the injured off their bottoms took much effort. This is the consequence of being bummed by bummers.

Apparently two men died inhaling poisonous fumes. More recently it has been decided that they died by with or from Covid 19 as most people seem to do nowadays.

Even if they do have existing conditions such as Stupid 20. See link at end if you do not know what this is.

5          News coverage

Apparently, the initial announcement of the attack on Pearl’s arbor was made by the Amerrycannes White House Press Secretary, Mr Stephen, early at 2:22 p.m.

This can’t be right obviously as 2.22 p.m. is not early but rather late.

It seems that reference was made to Ja’s Pan’s people who attacked the Rushans earlier in the century at 1904, about 4 minutes past seven in the evening of course. This was an unprovoked assault on a Mr Arthur who was quietly drinking port at the time.

He should not be confused with a Mr ‘Mac’ Arthur who would later be thrown out by Ja’s Pan’s people whilst he was chatting with a Mr Philip Pines who owned some islands near Ja’s Pan’s people. This was not long after the attack on Pearl’s arbour.

6          Aftermath

As regards the math afterwards you can do this yourselves.

However, the presented Frankly Drew Zebelt proclaimed on the day he heard about the attack “a date which will live in for me”. It is unclear what he meant by this.

It said by some this was the inspiration for the film ‘Carry on up the Khyber’, where Kenneth Williams, the actor says ‘Infamy, infamy they’ve all got it in for me!’

6.1      Strategic implications

The admirable Two D’Ashi Hara (possibly related to Maureen O’Hara) apparently said

“We won a great tactical victory at Pearl‘s arbor and thereby lost the whore.”

This is disputed by many scholars as they say ‘what have whores got to do with wars?’ Well, there were usually camp followers and even mobile brothels it seems.

In any event, no Amerrycane hair craft carriers were damaged or destroyed. Or in film speak ‘No hair craft carriers were harmed during the making of this film.’

This was a fatal flaw in Ja’s Pan’s People as they ignored neglected Pearl’s navy repair yards (a type of dark blue cloth), oil tank farms (where she kept loads of oil of O’Lay which belonged to an Irish friend of hers), a sub marine base (a type of face paint like aquamarine in colour), and an old head in his quarters called Bill Ding.

Apparently someone called Glenda of Ja’s Pan’s people, who knew about the things ladies required to keep themselves well maintained, was ignored. Such is the male mind with regards to ladies so often.

6.3      Retrospective debate on American intelligence

Whether this is a reflection on American intelligence is debatable, but the      United States had been caught unaware, or more properly in its underwear.

That is with its pants down. These are trousers in countries that speak proper English. Look, this is still my post, so get used to it.

I note that Frankly Drew Zebelt, against advice from an admirable, had ordered the fleet moved from Sent Die Go in 1940.  So ships were sent from here and men died.

No doubt it was a political manoeuvre to eventually get USA into war, that or incompetence. The former for sure.

Summary

Well, whatever else one may think about what happened, it did mean that The USA entered the war against Germany. This was a great relief to the United Kingdom who were no longer alone in the west although of course Russia was fighting its own brutal battles in the east.

Germany had called off the attacks on Moscow, so things were being stabilised over the harsh winter conditions.

The following sums up Winston Churchill’s relief. From this link.

Churchill explains his feelings that evening, beginning with, “No American will think it wrong of me if I proclaim that to have the United States at our side was to me the greatest joy. I could not foretell the course of events. I do not pretend to have measured the marshall might of Japan, but now at this very moment I knew the United States was in the war up to the neck and in to the death. So we had won after all!”

He continues, “England would live; Britain would live; the Commonwealth of Nations and the Empire would live. How long the war would last or in what fashion it would end, no man could tell, nor did I at this moment care. once again in our long Island history we should emerge, however mauled or mutilated, safe and victorious. We should not be wiped out. Our history would not come to an end. We might not even have to die as individuals.”

It is worth reading the whole article.

Japan’s entry into the war had in essence started it invaded China in 1937 which is too easily forgotten. So many Chinese died as a result of Japan’s aggression.

In the film of the title of my post Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto says “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant”. And also according to Wikipedia

Although the quotation may well have encapsulated many of his real feelings about the attack, there is no printed evidence to prove Yamamoto made this statement or wrote it down.

Whatever the case, it is true. It was like sticking needles into someone’s arm who is a lot stronger than you. In this case it sounds like Admiral Yamamoto of Japan ‘hammered my toe’ or ‘hammered the toe’ of the giant USA!!

This really isn’t a good idea of course. It might work if the giant is in the clouds like Jack and the Beanstalk (a pantomime around this time of year in the UK). Then you can cut the stalk and the giant falls to the ground and breaks his neck, but not otherwise.

Sticking needles remind me of the vaccination programs around the world. Prick the world and it will wake up as it is doing.

Back to the battle of Pearl Harbour. There wasn’t a third strike. This was understandable, but in baseball it’s three strikes and you’re out! If they had struck again perhaps matters would have been different. We can be thankful they weren’t.

There is an story on the man who led the first wave which is worth looking at.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsuo_Fuchida

It is interesting that he did not suffer from radiation sickness. I have some ideas about that as I seen another reference to a Japanese man who was at both Hiroshima and Nagasaki and survived both to live into old age! The link says

He became almost obsessed trying to understand why anyone would treat their enemies with love and forgiveness. It records he eventually became a Christian.

It also says he spoke to the pilot of the Enola Gay, the bomber that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. He said this.

You did the right thing. You know the Japanese attitude at that time, how fanatic they were, they’d die for the Emperor … Every man, woman, and child would have resisted that invasion with sticks and stones if necessary … Can you imagine what a slaughter it would be to invade Japan? It would have been terrible. The Japanese people know more about that than the American public will ever know.

Something to ponder I think.

Jesus treated his enemies with love and forgiveness. ‘Father forgive them, they know not what they do.’ But who was He referring to? The soldiers who were crucifying him under orders? The thieves on either side? Both?

Whatever the case, He also says ‘love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them, expecting nothing in return. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.’

And after all, they might then become your friend, and friendship is far, far more preferable.

Don’t you agree?
