First, explain to me why the tiger thing ranked 3 items up from the story on al-Hashimi on Blogdex. Then explain to me why — if we’re really there on the side of law and order and the attempt to bring democracy to Iraq — why are we being so REACTIVE about everything? Unless of course our troops are too busy killing rare, captive Bengal tigers to protect a woman trying to lay the foundations of a democracy.
Oh… My bad, it wasn’t the troops — it was the Army command that decided it was more important to shoot tigers than protect the people trying to get a move on democracy. Glad to hear that all that post-9/11 talk about America always being re- instead of pro-active about this sort of thing has really stayed in everyone’s minds. Glad to hear it.
Makes these beautiful things happen though.
