J.F.K.

In the central foyer of SPEARHEAD Headquarters, Mount Olympus, Greece, a marble engraving carries the words:

"The supreme reality of our time is the vulnerability of our planet." 

The quote is attributed to the 35th POTUS, John F. Kennedy who was tragically assassinated 50 years ago this day.

okay why the hell is Spearhead headquarters situated in Greece??? Greece??? And why the hell would you reveal it's location General??? Another slip in Security? The Indians go into space and you claim to have no knowledge and Let's not even go into the security lapses that occurred this week?

It's a long story which I won't go into here but during the formation of UNETIDA it was difficult for the US and USSR to be awayed from establishing the Headquarters in thir own countries. It was actually the french with the backing of the British that suggested a neutral site in Greece.

SPEARHEAD assimilated UNETIDA's HQ as it's own with our primary global defence opertations originating from two sites - Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, USA and Yamantau Mountain, Republic of Bashkortostan, Russia

It's been policy for some time to hide things in plain sight - because if people can see them, then there must not be anything of value to the knowledge.

I knew all about the Indians in space and commented the day it happened. I see everything now, far more than before. Sadly because I must now be informed of more things, there's little time to comment on them. One of the drawbacks to being a general.

Rest assure, I and SPEARHEAD know all about things like the Japs "space cannon", China's moon landing and the real reason why the SpaceX launch was scrubbed tonight.

Sadly in addition to monitoring all this, I'm up to my neck in a backlog of personnel reviews for filling the staff position I need to handle the personell reviews for the rest of the depatment, as well as projecting my first departemental budget which has to be padded with just enough extra so that what I actually get won't cripple the security of the entire planet.

..and how was your day?
