I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
There's a fortune inside your head / All you touch turns to lead / You think you might just crawl back in bed

Welcome to the New Iraq

Apparently Iraq’s new constitution is hinging on readiness. Yay.

With this in mind, a fitting tribute from The Who


We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again

Don’t forget the ever important last bit…

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

So, does anybody think anything’s really going to change here? A puppet regime put in place by an American government following the same realpolitik doctrine that’s been practiced since shortly after the end of World War Two.

This doctrine has been most transparent since the early to late 60’s, with history choosing to personify it most obviously in the paranoid presidency of Richard Nixon and his secretary of state, Henry Kissinger.

History is always better at hindsight - 20 years from now the old and new Bush presidency’s will have the same status, unless a further push to extremism occurs in which case we may be left wishing for the good old days.
