    Yes, wonder how many soldiers were tormented by their actions against the locals, whatever side they were on, and a need to make things right.

    Who the war criminals are depends on who wins. Leaders are the ones tried because they are the most to blame.

    Kurt’s commander certainly committed a warcrime. We don’t know that Curt did.

    Curt was rewarded for his good deed by Fatima, or Jeanne, or whatever her name is.

    Whatever else one might say about this plot, I’m beginning to love this part of it. (Anybody NOT see it coming? :::grin::: )

    Tarzan will tell them about the treasure he found right after he settles Jane’s credit card bill in Zanzagrad, or whereever it it was she was shopping.

    @saywhat?

    The thing about nobility is that it can come after repenting of one’s ignobility – which is exactly how the story is running here.

    Remember that his brand of nobility was being undermined by a certain, shall we say, politics-driven mythology and in time he got disillusioned about that. After being so, he began to see the open cruelty of those who still bought into the myth for what that cruelty was and his own part in the myth haunted him accordingly.

    When he had a chance to rectify that part he took it, and got more than he expected.

    The thing about all of us human beings is that we are at best a mixture of good and evil. There aren’t two kinds of normal human beings, those who are tempted by evil and those who aren’t. There are only those who resist their temptations to evil and those who don’t. That choice, not some imagined inherent purity in ourselves, marks the difference between nobility and ignobility.

    I do find that one of the biggest stumbling blocks we have as human beings is the naive and sometimes arrogant assumptions that we’re inherently good. A worse one is that we have the inherent ability to decide between good and evil. Neither is true. And people wonder why human history has been such a mess…

    That was Nairobi in Kenya. Somehow T-zan went to the “north African desert” as it is said here, from near Nairobi in the back of a giraffe, a distance of about 4,000 mi. And Jane is totally ignorant of his whereabouts.

    But at least we have the inherent ability to figure out when we’ve been hitting the gym wall at the School of Hard Knocks (school colors: black and blue) with our foreheads long enough. When you run head-on into universal moral law long enough, usually you can figure out it’s there.

    @Johanan Rakkav

    Yeah. You can pretty much see everything coming but it’s still an intriguing storyline.

    @sydman

    4000 miles on a giraffe? I can believe Tarzan doing that.
    Thanks for the clarification. I was running out of made up names.
    Jane probably won’t worry until the credit card bill comes due.

    The story seems to have brought out the philosophy of the thinkers among us.
