A bizarre substitution that needs specifics

  • Comment

Common vulnerability from the sky is clear, but unless Martin Pawley (AJ 19.9.02) draws a specific parallel between the twin towers and the doomed HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales to point analogy between the PAX Americana and the longer-lived, but now defunct, PAX Britannica, (reminding us that 'A (world) Policeman's lot is Not A Happy One' - Sic Transit Gloria Mundi) the 'substitution' is a shade bizarre, not to say mad.
