One Pieceワンピース [Yonkō Saga / Totland Arc] : Sir “Thousand Arms” Cracker vs Captain "Strawhat” Luffy
TBH I’m kind of disappointed how this fight turned out. After seeing Captain Jack “the Drought” I had certain expectations of the Yonkō Commander Captains, but Cracker’s fight quickly turned into a Usopp-esque joke match. Especially after he crawled out of his armor the hype was real!! Only to end in salt. Well I’m sure Oda-sensei has many more exciting fights planned for this arc so w/e let’s move it along!
“but we have to encircle every country we consider to be rivals with massive rings of military force to keep the homeland safe”
there hasn’t been a land war in the US since 1860 and it was against ourselves
the US is in like, the optimal position geography-wise to just ignore war and be fine with some basic defense. the only way to reasonably invade the US is through canada, and unless you are canada, you have the exact same “it’s cold as fuck” issue you have with invading russia. all you have to do is be friends with canada and that’s easy as fuck, and you’re secure, you’re golden
but noooooooo, we have to create humanity’s first global military force for some godforsaken reason
something i said to a real live person today, while looking them earnestly in the eyes: ‘my friend found a parrot on the side of the road and is nursing it back to health, and that’s why i am paying for one single banana, entirely in pennies.’
