Part 1: An Interview With The Colonel -2007: “And Shit Always Rolls Downhill.”

Weird Wally (WW): Last time we talked, you were really gung-ho for Bush and now you’re packing it in and getting out. What changed?

the Colonel (TC): As you know Mr. Weird, several of our best generals recently retired in-mass and that, my friend, is a sure sign that our democracy is in trouble. The only generals who retired were those who had some sense of a moral compass...a sense of integrity.

WW: Please explain.

TC: The generals I am loyal to have retired, therefore, my military time is also done. We break promises to our troops and their families for purely political reasons. Worse yet, to keep the illusion up that we have the manpower to even fight this war, we invite street gangs from the hoods and white supremacists to sign on.

WW: I can see how that might be a problem for the military.

TC: Wait until those urban and rural crazies return home. That’s when the shit will really hit the fan. I mean we’re talking about local law enforcement, social services and mental health institutions having to clean up this mess.

WW: You’re starting to sound like a sociology professor and the long term implications of the Iraq/Iran wars are a whole other story. Once you retire, what are your short-term plans?”

TC: Gotta keep moving because moving targets are harder to hit and there quite a few of us recently retired military and we know where the bodies are buried.

End of Part 1.

To Be Continued...

Trust me,
Weird Wally
