|The Black Smoke was the Martians' secondary weapon in my opinion. Its use (once again, IMO) was so that the Martians would not be cornered if the humans launched a pincer maneouvre (the enemy is surrounded and the opposing force 'squeezes' the enemy to destruction). This maneouvre WOULD help the British, like sqeezing a pimple. I guess that if an alien civilisation DID attack Earth, for us (Humans) we would have to adopt this maneouvre thereby being able to ground down the alien opposition to a point where a full scale assault was on the cards. |
"Right, now I've packed everything I need. Jumpers, trousers, spare socks, my copy of "Invasions for Dummies" and my tool-kit should the humans damge my machine. I just can't seem to remember where I put my medication...Ah well. I'll live without it!"
Oh really now...
