Me, after reading LotR: So Saruman realized he was on the losing side and decided to attack the Shire? A strategically unimportant place full of nice people who like to garden, eat, drink, and smoke "pipe weed." That doesn't seem realistic. Me now: Oh.

Read my bio and look at where I live, smart guy. Fun fact, not all of us hide behind chickenshit anonymous accounts.

Didn't he hit the Shire after he'd been beaten and cast out from the Orthanc? In which case I put it to you, that finding a place out of the way, out of the eye of his enemies and weakened by the locals' focus on beer and gardening, seems like an effective strategy. I rest.

Except he miscalculated. Just because those locals were nice and liked beer didn't mean they were weak and could be used as a punching bag to make himself feel better. Which is why he proceeded to get his ass kicked by some of those same locals. Which.... [gestures at Portland]

Saruman is doing it from pure spite and malice, and to ruin at least *something* for the brave and victorious Hobbits if he can't have what he wants otherwise. Does sound familiar, doesn't it?

Don’t forget that it was his lackey who ultimately did him in. 😉

In defence of Young Jamie, 2020 doesn't *sound* realistic, even being in it.
