What we bring you is a real “cult” of the network: the surreal radio dialogue between the Spanish A-853 (we will see later what it is) and a U.S. aircraft carrier.
It all begins with a request from the Spanish to change the carrier’s course by 15° to the south as it was on a collision course. The Americans retort by asking the Spanish to change their course to 15° north. The Spaniards plead impossibility, and the Yankees sulk: “We are talking to you from the second largest aircraft carrier in the U.S. Navy, escorted by two warships, six destroyers, five cruisers, four submarines, and other support ships“, they say, and add that they are headed to the Persian Gulf for a military operation in Iraq, as well as mentioning that Spain is part of NATO countries and therefore should not hinder such operations.
And here is the Iberians’ response, “We are with our dog, some food, two beers, and a sleeping bird. We are speaking to you from the mainland, from lighthouse A-853 in Finisterre, on the coast of Galicia. Feel free to do as you f— want and take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your fleet“. The Yankees have no choice but to respond with a subdued “Okay, got it.” Spain 1 United States 0.
