A Few Random Truths About The Inevitable War
How's that war
against al Qaeda going? We done over in Afghanistan? How's that working
out for ya? Buried the angst of 9/11 yet? Hey, before I'm done asking
questions; where's Osama bin Laden? When's the trial start?
The economy is in the toilet. Even Bush apologists are finally copping
to that. Stimulus package, tax cutting, Republican government, no matter.
People are being sacked left and right. Businesses are folding.
The president is popular, though. Polls tells us that. Polls tell us
a lot of things. Polls told us we loved Bill Clinton's lying. Polls
told us we loved that slavery. Polls told us we weren't keen on women
voting, or helping the Jews in Europe all that much.
Another recent poll has Americans reticent to get involved with another
war with no end. This war has been more or less going on since 1989.
Weapons inspectors, coalition, UN resolutions aside; it keeps going.
Not going to stop.
Here's why: Too many big dick egos on the line now. This is a Bush legacy
mess. First one got us in. This one has to see it through. At least
he realizes the whole thing stands there like the proverbial white elephant.
This was beyond the last administration. But it's a big dick thing.
Believe me. Oil has its place. Promises made to the enormous campaign

bothered looking into that. Bigger dick.
Truly bigger dick, with tons of consumers. Money. Money. Money. That's
what keeps big dicks erect.
That's what keeps Germany, France and Russia crying about the US warmonger.
Money. Money. Money. France and Germany get nearly 70% of their oil
supply from the Iraqi region. Saddam Hussein is into Russia for around
eight billion dollars. Dead lunatic is bad for business in Europe. So
don't buy any of their human rights, right to sovereignty bullshit.
Money. Money. Money.
And big dicks. North Korea is a goddamn powder keg. Those crazy fuckers
running things over there have serious weaponry and aim to use it for
Hatred for the US is palpable. Been going on for half a century. We
see fit to negotiate and ponder diplomatic solutions. Strong words are
exchanged, but no military build-up or maneuvers. No handy patriotic
rhetoric. China wouldn't stand for it. Neither would the UN, whatever
the hell that is these days.
Selective heroism. Today its Iraq, tomorrow, who knows? War used to
be good for the economy, but five simultaneous wars?
No end in sight. Nothing finished. Half-assed military policy all over
the globe. Stock market is doomed. Unemployment rate rising.
Homeland Security sucking the well dry.
You think our president would like to have his "Axis of Evil"
You know what the Axis of Evil is?
Money. Money. Money.
Dust off those yellow ribbons and slap old glory on the window of that
SUV, we're going in.
