yeah, that's it

Posted to Poetry and Politics




listen...when you're found to be wrong...why don't you just say it and carry on...believe me, whether you drop one or a hundred bombs, you are bombing a fucking city...the verb doesn't change; the degree to which the action is being taken does...

you may, of course, use phrases such as 'selective targeting', precision application', or any other combination of words you like, but bombing is bombing...and if you only drop one bomb on the presidential palace, and no other weapons whatsoever, you have still bombed baghdad...in fact, you have also bombed iraq...


always best to yank it out quickly when you stick your foot in it...trying to make it more comfortable rarely does any good
