Yup, no filter. It's like putting your mouth on a Koffing.

.... so, military Strikes ?!

In Britain, it was the Navy that was associated with the strongest cigarettes. Though a humble office worker, it was my dad's 20-a-day Capstan habit that led him to paying far more than just the price on the packet.

^ Wow! We've come a long way in terms of public attitudes to smoking. Today we are sufficiently well-informed that we mainly sell cigarettes to Third World countries. That's progress for you !

When I was doing pills and would get a quick opportunity for smoke break but not enough time to smoke a whole cig I would often tear the filter off and take a few good hits.

Trump says it looks like Iran was behind Saudi oil field attack

Quote:
Trump indicated that the Saudis may have to pay if the US launches military action.
"The Saudis are going to have a lot of involvement in this if we decide to do something. They'll be very much involved, and that includes payment," he said.
You heard it straight from the frog's mouth. We're all Saudi mercenaries now.

^ US intervention to support SaudiArabia might be a hard sell to any American who has a sense of morality or even a memory. Lucky for the Saudiis that Trump has neither:-

Quote:
On 20 November, U.S. President Donald Trump rejected the CIA's conclusion that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had ordered the killing. He issued a statement saying "it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event — maybe he did and maybe he didn't." Two days later, Trump denied that the CIA had even reached a conclusion.

On 13 December, in opposition to the White House's position, the United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution that held bin Salman personally responsible for the death of Khashoggi. On the same day, the Senate voted 56-41 to pass legislation to end U.S. military aid for the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen, a vote attributable to senators' desires to punish Saudi Arabia for the Khashoggi murder and for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, including a famine and human rights violations.
R.I.P. Jamal Khashoggi
