I don't think anyone's congratulating themselves on the U.S. once
again having to roll up it's sleeves and go after another bad guy.
It's a miserable thankless job that has to be done is all.

Have people over there suddenly gone goofy? Plenty of that blood is
American! Find me a European who thinks they could have gotten out
of WW II without us.
They don't have to join us, we'll clean the toilet ourselves.

Excuse me, thousands of our people were murdered in cold blood.
We'll take care of it.
Maybe they can sign treaties with Bin Laden like they tried to do
just before WW II. Yeah placate! That's the answer.

We didn't create either Afghanistan nor the middle east mess,
although we've made some bad moves in the region.
But that doesn't justify what happened, and we're not going to stop
till those responsible pay the price.

Intelligent suggestions are always welcome.
