A new frontier for NATO

Being our sword and buckler is clearly not NATO's only skill, as it has moved into the office decoration market, so to speak. Hasten to the NATO site and marvel at the range of PC wallpapers - one per month stretching back to September 2002.

Here is the first offering:


Other offerings include the 2002 Christmas wall paper. A conga line of troops on Arctic duty is, after all, the last word in Yuletide appropriateness. And here it is:

And the most recent offering is a photo of the venue for an informal meeting of defence ministers:



A few questions one might ask:

Are they compulsory for staff, or just to allow the resident backside kissers to curry favour with the management?

Alternatively, if the wallpaper is there to impress adolescent boys, weapons nerds etc, I recommend a greater emphasis on military hardware.

Have you read the comments on Polly Toytown's latest scream of rage, on Guardian on-line? I don't recall her ever getting such a comprehensive "passage a tabac".

These cry-baby hostages in Iran! Let the Persians keep 'm!

I sure have. Beyond satire, isn't she? I did enjoy reading a demolition of her figures by Tim Worstall, inter alia.

Re the "conga line of troops on Arctic duty" - why do I suspect that they may be UN, in other words, "World Government" troops? From nations with no real military.

For energy lines in the frozen north, give me the inspiring photos of the Ididarod any time! What fine people! And very fine dogs!
