Hope you enjoy this...
Und nun, liebe kinder, gebt fein acht:
Die wahrheit wird zu sand gemacht!
...Den streut man jenen in die Augen
die niemals fragen- alles glauben...
Die volle wahrheit zu ertragen
steht jenen an die Fragen fragen-
Nur dem der sie zu stellen wagt:
Und Gott hilf dem der Fragen fragt!
(My children- come and see this land
were truth has long since turned to sand
which wind will blow into the eyes
of those who never question lies...
The truth to bear is for those men
who dare to question- and who then
make asking their most pressing task:
And God help those who dare to ask...)

Petraeus Reports to Congress!
Decider, decider, how goes the surge?
The month is September, your countrymen urge
You to tell of the war and when it will cease
So tell us, you promised the surge would bring peace.
“Don’t think for a minute that I am the boss.”
“Petraeus commands there, I’m at a loss
To influence these matters, it’s all up to him.
He’ll report to Congress, regardless how grim.”
Petraeus, Petraeus, enlighten us please,
Is victory near? We remain ill at ease.
“I have a new plan, that’ll carry the day
The surge is a marvel, the course I will stay."
"We “surged” thirty thousand of stalwart young men
In June, we’ll begin to remove them again."
That’s it? Are you kidding? You’re making a joke!
That’s only rotation, our Army is broke!
The Iraq war continues, and others will die,
The shame of America, built on a lie.
Anybody know why?
