Blue screen informs that the war has begun. What will be needed for the war? Collect the men, find guns, or maybe someone will give them. We need a location, a country where the war would take place. No problem, the Colonel is a real pro, he has caused wars to order, or on orders, on multiple occasions in different countries. Now his followers have grown up and caused a war in his country. He needs to demonstrate his skills. He doesn’t want to, but he has to fight. He is a Colonel on one of the sides and is forced to kill his compatriots. He finds it hard; it hurts him when a soldier die. He is old and tired of war, and he cannot change anything any longer. He simply wants an honorable way out and to remain a hero in the eyes of future generations, but his deepest heart desire is a home, he wants to be at the table with a steaming pot of tasty mutton ribs and stare at a blue and innocent TV screen with the news on, and the dressed-up news reporter announces that the war has begun.
