Obama's Afghanistan |
Generals forgetting that trainees will need to be paid
In these trying times you'd think
most "star" gen'rals would keep mum,
Especially those without a clue
where troops they want are coming from.
Yet NATO's Fogh Rasmussen's promised
at least seven thousand more
Though Stan McChrystal's not made clear
who they're against, or who they're for.
Must NATO fight the Taliban
So he can move his troops to where
someone who likes the Karzais is?
Should Secretary Gen'rals ask
or entertain the slightest doubt
How anybody's troops can leave
if Stan McChrystal's funds run out?
Stanley's bribes get his troops in,
but are they one-way passes?
If round-trip isn't specified,
we'd better kick some four-star asses.
Some suspect Fogh's guesstimates
include those troops already there,
That he's another politician
pulling numbers from thin air.
But can he dream up ways to pay
the troops that Stan McChrystal trains
So that we don't end up with zilch,
for our losses? for our pains?
Who cares if Stan hangs Taliban,
if he can find the trees,
But why make toll collectors out of
Stanley's rarely paid trainees?
