Iraq Is Now 'Our' Colony - Why the Fuck Should 'We' Leave?
Monday, 16 July 2007


Drawdowns, withdrawal, timelines,

mission shifting, building democracy

and all the other current and

long-standing phony rhetoric aside,

America is in Iraq to stay

as a conqueror and occupier

It is now 'our' colony

Why the fuck should 'we' leave?



With "the walls of Jericho" crumbling around him
as the world's most hated man

and the ship of state listing badly,

a pathetic caricature of a president

keeps pleading for more time

He claims it's needed to head off the threat

of "mass killing on a horrific scale"

in Iraq and plenty at home as well

He then continues using the same

timeworn line that the war can be won,

the "surge" is working, give it a chance,

and withdrawing will be disastrous

Be more patient, and we'll know

more in September, so we're told



more at"

1. So this means we will be taking in all of their refugees - right????
Isn't that what happened to the other colonials - England, France, etc.
