First graders comment on Veterans Day

In Word War 2, we beat up the Germies.

My Aunt is joining the Submarines.

We have to honor the veterans cause they fight for us and take care of our animals.

My dad went to Iraq cause those terrors knocked over our buildings.

War is bad. Whoever starts one* should be punished.

*"I fully understand those who say you can't win this thing militarily. That's exactly what the United States military says, that you can't win this military." --George W. Bush, on the need for political progress in Iraq, Washington, D.C., Oct. 17, 2007

Oh, my, yes. Let's do punish him.

flounder mcgee said...

We didn't start this war, but we are damn sure gonna finish it.

Bomb 'em back to the stone age, I say.

Scarlet Hip said...

Nance - oh yes, can we please?

Flounder - no actually, we did.

flounder mcgee said...

My dearest Brookie, how did we start this war?

Didn't the islamic terrorist bastards crash planes into our buildings?

I mean, what did those buldings or the people inside ever do to them?

...and yes, Iraq is part of the continuing war on terror. It didn't start that way, but it sure is now.

My dearest Flounder,

It saddens me that you have chosen to rewrite history as so many other justifiers of this war have done. Yes, terrorists crashed into our buildings. But they were not from Iraq. The terrorists we wanted were hiding out in Afghanistan. Remember? Flounder, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Please tell me you haven't bought into the bullshit of Saddam = 9/11. One had nothing to do with the other.

I believe the only thing to say about Iraq was said long ago:

In war, truth is the first casualty.
- Aeschylus -

Personally, I think all sides are full of shit. That's what makes voting so difficult. (Politics in Canada are just as appalling as in the U.S.)

I love it!

flounder mcgee said...

Saddam = Mahmoud Ahmadinejad = Osama = Yusuf Islam = Al Qaeda = Muslim Wackjobs That Hate Us And Want Us Dead

Scarlet Hip said...

Bill - right there with you.

VG - thank you!

Flounder - enough.

I think Flounder should join the Army if he wants things bombed back to the stone age. I know he's a little older than the average soldier, but I'm sure they'd be glad to use him as cannon fodder.

Bone said...

Oh wow, you're really taking this blogging every day thing seriously.

I can't seem to make it by every day. You know, what with my life being so full and all.

1st graders are the only people who should be allowed to speak. they're the only ones who make sense.

Hey wasn't Yusuf Islam Cat Stevens? Don't see the logic ther flounder baby. Because you're Muslim you're a! I din't know that.

Bush strated the war to boost sales for his daddy's arms companies. Fuck man get your head round that. Young men and women on both sides are dying for nothing. If you really want to line the Bush Cartel's pockets...send them a check baby.

flounder mcgee said...

Todd, if I were in the military, I would be nothing but cannon fodder. I'm nearly as big as a A1-Abrams.

yournamehere said...

me too. It wouldn't take a sharpshooter to hit the broadside of my barn.
