We Have Surely Stepped In it Again...This Time

Updated on October 14, 2009

We have surely stepped in it again this time.


History far too often repeats itself much to soldiers dismay.

Almost three thousand left behind, and 58,000 men lost
when he last served a president in the 60's

If you wrap horse manure in a flag
and sell it as something patriotic

believing it is necessary to keep in your home,
and near and dear to your souls
it might sell to the many true at heart
who believe in any causes of America,
but it would still be waste wrapped up
as something else, and the stench of it all
would eventually make you leave it behind.....

As a Vietnam Veteran I remember just such
packages being sold as gold, and guess what
Old Donald's Rum fields, hic!! creating

Mr. Quotes of the year...i.e.

"Just fight with what you have and don't worry about it??!!
and "Even a tank can be blown up with enough explosives!"

(so why don't we send all the boys over on bicycles, Donald??)

This particular Donny boy with combat boot in mouth
was the assistant to the president
involved in the NATO treaties and
was the secretary of defense back then too,
towards the end of the Vietnam conflict
and the evacuation and fall of Sai-gone.

The plop thickens as the flag gets soiled
in his second poor attempt at democracizing
a third world country on the backs and bones
of good men and women broken.

Inadequate armor and armored hummers in Iraq,

parents sending their sons and daughters $500.00

to by proper armor for their fragile flesh.

Is this what the Bush regime considered

sufficient in the rush to war.

thousands of good men and women maimed

in that hurry scurry dash

without forethought to equip them properly first.

Of course Rumsfield did pay a token visit
for about twelve hours in a heavily armored
vehicle and top quality full body flak jacket
under extremely heavy guard

to pay his respects to a few.

"What is good for the goose is
evidently not as good for the Gander!"

Was I the only one seeing through the ruse
he perpetuated on his little
"Sorry I opened my mouth trip."
let me prove how brave I am in a secured situation

Bah Hummmer-bugs-Dumbo Rumsfield.
