First as Tragedy ….

19th Century Geo-politics are being played out again in Europe:

The “Dogs of War” are loose and the rugged Russian Bear,
All bent on blood and robbery has crawled out of his lair…
It seems a thrashing now and then, will never help to tame…
That brute, and so he’s out upon the “same old game”…
The Lion did his best… to find him some excuse…
To crawl back to his den again. All efforts were no use…
He hunger’d for his victim. He’s pleased when blood is shed…
But let us hope his crimes may all recoil on his own head..

We don’t want to fight but by jingo if we do…
We’ve got the ships, we’ve got the men, and got the money too!
We’ve fought the Bear before… and while we’re Britons true,
The Russians shall not have Syria …
