Flying around our killer drones
Bombing people in their homes,
Ain't really that great a plan;
Let's hunt for the moderate Taliban.
Maybe we can bribe some more liberal guys,
Those without international ambitions.
Then we'll wait for alqueda to fail,
By the process of attrition.
Let them have their Shia law.
They can be just like before;
But the coalition of the willing
Does not find this whole thing thrilling.
Who are we to change their ways,
If they make alqueda go away?
Open-mindedness sometimes works;
And we are getting whipped by these jerks.
