The View from a Drawbridge

The random musings of a bridgetender with entirely too much time on her hands.

Well, you have to admire the Russians for thinking outside of the box. Their creative meddling with our elections has saddled us with the most divisive and destructive president in our nation’s history, in the form of bozo the clown. Who could have predicted that? They must be laughing over their borscht.

But now they’re employing marine mammals to do their dirty work. According to this article in Newsweek, there’s a beluga whale wearing a black harness that says “equipment of St. Petersburg”, that is harassing Norwegian fishing vessels. Practicing for… what?

The article goes on to say that the Russians have been training seals and dolphins, too, for decades. This really crisps my bacon. It’s one thing to manipulate us due to our own stupidity, paranoia, and wrong-headed convictions including but not limited to racism and sexism. It’s quite another to enslave intelligent creatures to do your dirty work.

Belugas should be above politics. This is messed up on so many levels. That government will stop at nothing. Next, they’ll be strapping grenades onto puppies and drop kicking them over our soon to be constructed, any day now, I swear to God, Wall on the Southern border.

Spasibo, Putin.

    A black harness? A kinky whale, into BDSM? Seriously, though, it is unnerving. In ’89 when the Wall came down, I thought I didn’t have to worry about the Russians any more. Silly me.
    Agreed that we don’t need to bother sentient [central nervous system] creatures for amusement or religious nonsense and so on, including underhanded spying (is there another kind?) To save human lives, now…well, I don’t want to get too far into all the ramifications, but I think spying on fishing boats isn’t going to save anyone’s bacon very soon.
    They should put white harnesses on those belugas and it won’t show…

    1. White harnesses would be a good idea, and, um, maybe remove any identifying marks. It’s not as if a lot of other spy belugas are out there roaming around and they’ll all get mixed up and there will be this whole property dispute issue…
