12 ZTAS 3

‘We can only guess at the precise effect of the epidemic ofalcoholism on the Soviet’s ability to fight. The men who fought their way across Europe, from the Volga to Berlin, were accompanied not by field kitchens (they were expected to look after their own cooking) but by field stills, and yet they won the war. On the other hand, German officers who fought against them have described occasions on which a Soviet unit was easily overcome because every man in it was drunk. A former lieutenant in the strategic Rocket Forces told Enders Wimbush, a Rand Corporate researcher: ”The time for the Americans to attack would be New Years Eve, because everybody was drunk and there was no-one on duty”. But then, he paused and added, New Years Eve wasn’t that much different from any other time”‘

‘Are we living in a land where sex and horror are the new Gods?’

‘Whether the ban on the tedious ‘Relax’ was merited or not is another matter, but one rock musician who told me that the action was Stalinist was perhaps unfairly maligning the Soviet Union, where sex rears its head in the unlikeliest places. In “It Ain’t Necessarily So” from Porgy and Bess, the line “Little David was small, but oh my” was once translated as little David was impotent.” Oh my!’

‘Yes, the Gurkas really are the sort of men one would like to go into the jungle with’[1]

‘To those within this hall of mirrors, the arms race thus appears a logical, if unfortunate development, each side attempting to counter the new weapon, or the new build up, of the other. Step back however, and the rationality of the process becomes far more elusive. What appears instead are two large bureaucracies, each of which is inefficient and wasteful, each of which inflates the “threat” posed by the other for its own internal purposes, each of which helps drain the economy of its own nation, but neither of which is especially impressive at doing the job assigned to it. They may lead us into war, but we shouldn’t expect either of them to fight it very well’
