Inside Iraq's green zone. When I got this book from our local library, I thought it would be about Iraq, the war, our soldiers, etc. But instead it is all about the supposed injustices which America has inflicted on Iraq. It was all accusations and no solutions. Maybe there are a very few intelligent claims in this book, but I am not going to wade through all 297 pages of gloom to find them.
"MISTAKES WERE MADE!" protesters proclaim.
Well, Duh. You don't seem to realize that this is war. And I do not believe that the Americans in Iraq are as stupid and cruel as you say they are.
In order to close the day on a more positive note, here's an old favorite for you to enjoy.
methuselah ate what he found on his plate,
And never, as people do now,
Did he note the amount of the calorie count;
He ate it because it was chow.
He wasn't disturbed as at dinner he sat,
Devouring a roast or a pie,
To think it was lacking in granular fat
Or a couple of vitamins shy.
He cheerfully chewed each species of food,
Unmindful of troubles or fears
Lest his health might be hurt
By some fancy dessert;
And he lived over nine hundred years.
