Leviathan and The Limitation

Johnny did you ever know that time keeps marching on
The coldest hour is the one comes just before the dawn

The devil's back in Georgia will you stand up to the test

Or will you let the devil be the best?

The Devil came back to Georgia.

On Leviathan. Some dood name Hobbes wrote about it, referencing some Biblical stuff, but it's Barnett that keeps it forefront in my mind.

Implicit in the concept of Leviathan, or baddest ass on the block, is that everyone keeps their killing to an acceptable level. In that manner, the kingdom can be saved. The Japanese SDF (no, not Super Dimension Fortress) becomes the rule, and not the exception. But out there, always, is the Leviathan. So when I stumble across articles like this one, on EUReferendum, I can't help but chuckle a bit:

Reviewing the specification, it is quite remarkable how sophisticated are the capabilities of these light attack aircraft, reinforcing our view that an advanced capability can be attained without necessarily acquiring overly expensive and complex platforms.

Rule, not exception. Feature, not a bug.

Just feels logical.

For the Leviathan?

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Beaten, why for (why for)
Can't take much more
Here we go here we go here we go, now

One, nothing wrong with me
Two, nothing wrong with me
Three, nothing wrong with me
Four, nothing wrong with me

Lonely job, that.
