When will we ever learn?
Here we go … again.
Another “fight fer freedom” … I’ve lost count at this point.
We just can’t get our fill, can we?
It’s not enough that we’re already bogged down in two Middle Eastern wars/occupations – and tottering on the edge of a currency default and possibly a complete collapse of our economy here in the Homeland. We need to jump into a third Middle Eastern war.
Halliburton, Kellog Root & Brown require it. Obama – the latest sock puppet/front man for the corporate state – is implementing it.
America the Psychotic ought to be our new national anthem. We’d go ape if some other country decided to “intervene” in our affairs after, say, Katrina. But we can just dive right on into other countries’ internal paroxysms at our whim - attacking whomever we wish – just because we can. So long as they’re low-rent enough that we can attack them with relative impunity, that is. We never hit anyone who can hit back. I suspect that is going to change. And we will have deserved every bit of it.
Or maybe the new anthem ought to be America the stupid. Because we just never learn. The poltroons (a great word; look it up) and other species of Chickenhawkus Americanus now orchestrating the bombing of Libya are the same know-it-all donkeys who turgidly demanded that “we” (that is, cannon fodder 19-year-olds from StumpJump, West Virginia) clear out Saddam because there was an Islamic Thomas Jefferson – hell, a whole slew of Iraqi founding fathers, faithful democrats all- waiting to take his place.
Just like in Afghanistan. They love freedom, you see. Democracy, too...
