Time to pull out

Time to pull out

The headline at CNN says “Relief workers confront ‘urban warfare.’” I’m starting to have my doubts. Isn’t this all about oil? Are we going to let troops die so that we can feed the thirst for Gulf of Mexico oil by Bush’s oil buddies? I think it’s time to pull the troops out of New Orleans. We’re obviously not wanted there by the natives and we should just pull out before any more of the troops die. They were obviously better off before we moved the troops in there and created a problem. I think their very presence is obviously creating the very violence they seek to prevent. Is low-cost oil worth the live of one soldier?

No blood for oil, is what I say! It is just a “modest proposal.”

[For the satire-impaired, I am making a point using parody a la Jonathan Swift’s famous proposal.]
