People cannot cope with the righteousness, arrogance and hypocrisy of the 
US govt.

*After all, it was the Americans that put Saddam there in the 1st friggin' 
place!!!!* (well, the CIA back in the early 60's, anyway).

The CIA has created quite a few monsters, like Saddam, over the decades. 
Please don't come begging to the rest of the world pleading for help in 
cleaning up a problem entirely of US' creation - your mistake, you clean it 
up. Take some f***ing responsibility for the actions of your nation!

Just come clean and say - all we're going in for is oil, oil and more damn 
oil. One only has to study history to know that Iraq has always been a 
hot-spot for imperialist regimes (before the US it was the English and 
their good ole' Commonwealth).

(some) People really *do* have short memories (as PG suggested in the Oils 
track of the same name)...
