Objects of beauty - you seem to have got them just right - tanks, planes and women, I mean
And on the subject of currency wars - in historical terms, it is curious how the wheel turns and the world changes - much of the subject of your Rising Sun release is due to US support of (Nationalist) China against Japanese (of the thirties and forties) aggression - and British involvement in Burma as a requirement to defend against Japanese aggression against India (as it then was, part of the British Empire) and, not least, a request from the US to keep the Burma road supply route to Chiang Kai-shek open . . .
All of this against the background of WW2, of course.
But take a look at how those particular Allies/Enemies of those days are aligned now. . .
OT: My particular favourite - the way the RAF and Luftwaffe have essentially operated the same equipment, pointed in the same direction, ever since the end of WW2. . .
