Uh oh. It seems that my last post upset some of the boys in the bunker. Oh not the parts about General Blowhard, they all think he's a hot air balloon just like I do. But the part where I said that we were relying on American warplanes to kill the Taliban. The boys feel that's not giving our soldiers enough credit for all the fighting they've had to do. And all the Taliban they've killed.
They hate the Taliban so much, they believe you can't kill enough of them. And that when our side does kill a bunch of them we should jump up and down like we just scored a goal at a hockey game. We shoot! We score!They die! We win! I know why my gay brothers feel that way. But of course it's more complicated than that. Like every time you kill one of them, you create 150 more.
But I do want to make it clear that from what I hear our troops in Afghanistan are performing heroically,They are fighting like Canadians always have. And as this little video shows they're a pretty tough bunch.
Wow that's the real thing all right. I admire their bravery and determination. I support them a hundred per cent. And I'm sure most Canadians do. But that doesn't mean that we can't criticize the mission. Or demand that General Blowhard tell Canadians the truth about the military situation. Instead of trying to cover it up. Or refuse to allow our chickenhawk President Harpo to sign us up for Chimp Bush's crazy War on Terror.
But what the hell....it's the weekend. Enough about Afghanistan. Too bad we couldn't stop this tragedy in its tracks. But the truth will come out some day. It always does.
Although it's really too bad we can't hurry things up before more lives are lost. Too bad we can't force people to tell the truth, like the Green Fairy does in this Morality Tale.
That'll teach him to turn on the fairy. Now where did that green queen go? I need one of those flutes.
To make a Blowhard General dance and tell the truth.
Although if I can't have one of those. I'll settle for a red tuba...
And play it for Harpo as well....
