Troops in Iraq

Troops in Iraq

The commission of Bush the First’s Friends, to try to extract sonny George the Twoth from Iraq, is currently debating troop levels.

Should the troop levels be reduced immediately in Iraq, or increased to beat down the civil war (oops!) insurgency?

Decisions, decisions.

Ponder, ponder and the commissioners pondered some more.

They pondered three hours, ‘til their ponderers were sore.

Then they thought of something they hadn’t before.

"We don't need to pick. We don't need to choose. If we can't win, make the other guy lose.

"We'll fly in more troops, Air Special D. We'll fly them to Baghdad, Falujah, Tikrit.

"While they're coming to town, to kill insurgents,

"We'll fly out some troops, it simply makes sense.

"We'll say to the hawks, 'We're gonna kick butt',

"While we say to the doves, 'All we need now is Love.'"


My work here is done.

    Wasn't one of the biggest lessons learned from Vietnam, "You can't win wars from Washington?"

    I say, let Gen. Abizaid and the commanders on the ground decide how many troops they need.

    Greg -
    You did see Lacy on my entry today, didn't you?

    Dag'nabit, she beat me here...

    Herm, sorry, ahem. I think the only way to handle the war in Iraq is to get Burt Reynolds and the other man-law characters to be deciders.

    I like milk.

    Para, yes. Except the war ended some time ago, so what qualifies Abizaid to be a cop?

    Yes, Brenda! Delightful - thanks!

    Stew, I can see that the blood has all rushed to your tonsils.
