The world's media is falling all over itself in fits of euphemism as "groups of armed men" riding in Russian military aircraft seized airports in Crimea.
I want to retcon history with this phrase!
- Paul Revere riding the streets of Boston yelling "Groups of armed men are coming! Groups of armed men are coming!"
- FDR speaking to Congress: "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by groups of armed men riding in airplanes of the Empire of Japan."
- James Forrestal and Howlin' Mad Smith on the beach at Iwo Jima looking up at the flag raising on the mountain: "Holland, the raising of that flag on Suribachi means groups of armed men for the next five hundred years."
Well, Ukraine, looks like you're on your own. Call Angela and François; maybe they'll get your back.
