Draft em and don't ever apologize.

Mr. President,
After years of denying that Iraq is like Vietnam I am glad you have finally embraced the “V” word.
You even hired Kissenger to help him re-fight the Vietnam war. The only thing you haven’t done is institute the draft. But there is still time.

Since your party has already taken the hit for the war you have nothing to lose now. Mc Cain already went on the record saying we needed more troops to finish the job. Everyone needs a straight man.

If you decide to take the plunge, I think you should draft people according to their mother’s maiden name, starting in the ghettos and barrios, of course.

I think I can find some 60’s protest banners somewhere, and it would be fun if everything else does go retro because, lord knows there was some decent pot back then.

I find it ironic that you actually broke bread with the enemy in Hanoi. I am glad you didn’t do a Jayne-Fonda and sit behind an ant-aircraft gun while you were there. President Lyndon Johnson would have been impressed. Incidentally, he also believed the New York Times was evil.

President Johnson’s
believed in his war as much as you believe in yours. Did you feel his presence while you were there? What is it about Texan presidents that like to start wars and are too stubborn to know they were horribly wrong? Did you guys eat too many worms from empty Tequila bottles? Were you dropped at birth?


I eagerly await your upcoming definition of victory in Iraq. I was encouraged to hear another Bushism recently when one of your acolytes recently demonstrated your influence as he redefined hunger.

According to
Mark Nord, the lead author of the USDA annual report, said "hungry" is "not a scientifically accurate term.


The Agriculture Department issues a yearly report that measures Americans' access to food, and it has always defined the word "hunger" to describe those who can least afford to put food on the table.

According to a Washington Post article, “The
USDA said that 12 percent of Americans -- 35 million people -- could not put food on the table at least part of last year. Eleven million of them reported occasionally going hungry. The USDA has determined 'very low food security' to be a more scientifically palatable description for that group.”



I guess those millions of Americans who struggle daily to feed themselves and their families, will be relieved to understand that they are not technically hungry.

Likewise after you redefine victory in Iraq the new
morgues built in Baghdad for the thousands of Iraqis killed will be idled, and the tattoo artists who etch Iraqi’s next-of-kin’s phone numbers on their bodies will be looking for other work.

Many Iraqis are tattooed because the morgues can’t take the time to find family members and quickly intern bodies to make room for new victims of your war.




Former South African President P.W. Botha the Apartheid leader, who jailed tens of thousands of black activists, died on November 1st. During one of his final appearances, he exclaimed that he had nothing to repent for. He never apologized or repented. He said “I am not going to repent what I did I did for my country.”

I can hear you saying the same thing years after you single-handedly brought so much shame to our country and gave new and devastating meanings to the word “democracy.”
