New Iraq, The

          We're coming after Saddam Hussein.  He may have helped the Tali-ban jack the planes.

          We will never grant you permission to execute such a gun-ho mission.

          We'll invite our own admission.  This will be a mutually beneficial mission.  We never thought of asking the peoples permission.
          We'll take him away & lock him in prison, he'll never hurt anyone else again, and we'll bring his regime to an end.

          Now you send a full battalion invasion?

          We're here because we have justification.  His actions alone require incrimination.

          Your words are still without persuasion.

          All we want is assimilation, uh, we mean, to provide you with a better nation.  One free of this tyrants dictation.  The laws & rules that govern our nation will be adopted for your salvation.

          The ways of your country are not as they seem.  You preach of this "American Dream," but you have people under oppression.  A laps in government caused a "Great Depression" now your success should be our lesson?

          We're not saying we're more successful, but removing Saddam is detrimental.
          You know the things he's put you through; we'd be a great relief to you.

          How strong could your care for our safety be?  You too bring tyranny.  We see American soldiers & fight or flee.

          Come on, really how bad could we be?

          You have also tortured & humiliated.  Now you wonder why you're being debated?  Those are our people you have degraded, but you vow justice on those who retaliated when both actions seem to be related.

          But we'll reconstitute your government & give you the freedoms that God meant, just run under an American department.  And you can save your money it wont cost you a cent.  We'll just take your oil as repayment.

          Your American hands slap & take; now we may bend, but we won't break.

          What bends will eventually break & what we want we always take.
          Consider yourself luck that you're not Cherokee, we might have considered the entire country.
          Now this is how things will be, your outlook on current society will be changed dramatically; you'll be stripped of your ancestry instead of letting cultural change come naturally.  You'll be infected, we mean protected, under a new policy.  Can't you see our sincerity?  We're doing this for the good of our... your country.
          After all is done & we draw back, you'll be known as The New Iraq, and then maybe, you can have your country back.
