We read a lot about the most powerful armies on the planet. But what about the weakest? Few countries would want to acknowledge that their military is little better than a bunch of Boy Scouts hyped up on sugar. For example, when the air force of the southern Irish state take part in a military parade, they send a couple of blimps and a brightly coloured kite. Presumably the Vatican have only really angry priests to send into battle. That said, fail to put enough wine in the cruet to sate the clergyman’s appetite, and you will see just how mental a priest can get.
