If we cannot find Osama, bomb Iraq

[Anonymous- circulating the Net: Sung to the tune of "If You're Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands"]

If we cannot find Osama, bomb Iraq.
If the markets hurt your Mama, bomb Iraq.
If the terrorists are Saudi
And the bank takes back your Audi
And the TV shows are bawdy, bomb Iraq.

If the corporate scandal's growin', bomb Iraq.
And your ties to them are showin', bomb Iraq.
If the smoking gun ain't smokin'
We don't care, and we're not jokin'.
That Saddam will soon be croakin', bomb Iraq.

Even if we have no allies, bomb Iraq.
From the sand dunes to the valleys, bomb Iraq.
So to hell with the inspections;
Let's look tough for the elections,
Close your mind and take directions, bomb Iraq.

While the globe is slowly warming, bomb Iraq.
Yay! the clouds of war are storming, bomb Iraq.
If the ozone hole is growing,
Some things we prefer not knowing.
(Though our ignorance is showing), bomb Iraq.

So here's one for dear old daddy, bomb Iraq,
From his favorite little laddy, bomb Iraq.
Saying no would look like treason.
It's the Hussein hunting season.
Even if we have no reason, bomb Iraq.

Here´s a merry little mp3 of the bomb Iraq song,
you sing along now:

a few months ago I would have chuckled-- but the realization that Iraq and neighbors will never get together on their own and are like spoiled adolescents makes me feel otherwise. It is an area full of hate and reacts as such. No lecture, spanking, bombing, or lets sit down and talk method will work. Tribes hate each other and the western world . Training youth to revere leaders through anti-western propaganda and harsh living is their way- Way to go world-- watch out cause you'll be next on their list!
