Nearly two months ago I mentioned the ‘Nato Exercises in Romania’ in a  post. Today I had another look at some of the YouTube videos. It is hard to describe what I feel when I watch these videos. After World War Two I grew up thinking that it was possible that mankind should live in peace. That World Wars could be prevented because people did not like these wars. People wanted to live in peace, didn’t they? What do people want now, really?

Nato Exercises in Romania

26 Jun
Our second stop on the way back from Ballina, Victoria, was at Gundagai, NSW, Then started the long, boring drive to Goulburn. This stretch of road is less than 200 km, but as I said, it is absolutely boring! I had trouble getting a station into the radio that was close enough to listen to without disturbances.
Finally I found an ABC News station. The woman News reader had what sounded to me a wonderful clear voice, . I had just started listening to her, when she said something about  Nato exercises in Romania.. I asked Peter, who was sitting beside me and was driving, could he hear these news. He couldn’t. I asked, did he have his hearing aid switched on. Yes, it was on. So I thought I’d have to turn it up a bit more so he could understand what was being said on the news.
It turned out, he did  not want to listen to this ‘terrible’ voice.  HE JUST DID NOT LIKE THIS VOICE. Before I was able to turn the volume down, he SCREAMED at me, It was such  a big scream. It made me feel absolutely devastated. Not only did I find it hard to cope with this news about Nato but on top of it I found myself blasted with this enormous screaming. How on earth would I relax now? I just did not feel like sitting in the front of the car any more, eyes open all the time, not being able to listen to the radio, not being able to talk to Peter.
Well, I know now, it was wrong of me to turn the radio on at all. Before we had reached Gundagai I had been able to always get some station in that was close, First we listened to this:
http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/australiaallover/, ” Spend your Sunday mornings with Macca as he travels around Australia, speaking to Aussies at home and around the world.”
 Later on we found a station with some country music.
Of  course I switched the radio off immediately when Peter screamed at me so horribly. I never dared to turn it on again on the whole way back  to Dapto.
I have been concerned for a long time about what is going on with NATO in  Europe. None the less,  I cannot help getting more and more concerned. Just now I googled “Nato Exercises in Romania”.  Voila, there were about ten different publications about it!
These entries are from different sources all dated from recent weeks.
How about this one:
