The alabaster whiteness of the rugged Major’s teeth shone as fireflies in the aggravated heavens.
Oh, it was just an exercise.
From the comments to “Multinational forces storm Mayport beach for drills“, wherein commenter “tut tut” need not be forgiven for her/his use of the imperial first-person plural:
This is like one of those stories I used to write for my high school newspaper. I’d comment on everything but what the actual news in the the story was. And I’d have my thesaurus next to me to make it seem like I knew more than I actually did.
Why does the author not ask the obvious questions:
What the hell is this troop of military soldiers doing by running war games on our beaches?
Why is it a multinational group to begin with? Are we at war with Peru? Is Peru at war with us?
Why is it US soldiers and soldiers from several different foreign countries are training to ‘jell’ and why is that ‘good’?
I’m surprised he didn’t write something like ‘The alabaster whiteness of the rugged Major’s teeth shone as fireflies in the aggravated heavens.’
Puff piece that tells me nothing of what I need to know about this curious incident.
