What are we doing?

March 1st, 2001

Have we gone quite completely INSANE here? Dutch fishermen disagree with a Dutch secretary of state and are blocking the ports of Amsterdam and Rotterdam with their vessels. So far, so understandable, although that secretary of state should never have allowed the situation to escalate like this.

But that those fishermen also block the Westerschelde, and thereby the port of Antwerp, that is a direct act of war against a friendly nation.

If the Belgians send in F16s-armed-with-mavericks today and blow those fishermen from the water, I'll wholeheartedly support them.

Are they out of their fucking minds? Grrrrrr. Hold me, lest I vent my rage.
