Would you? Could you?
from afar?
Nuke them! Drone them!
There they are!

I would not,
could not,
from afar.

You may hate them.
You will see.
You could bomb them from the sea!

And I would kill them with a drone!
And I would do it with a loan…
And I would bomb them in Bahrain.
Or use a coup.. It’s all the same!
And from afar. .And from the sea.
The scam is good!  I finally see!

So we will nuke them to a boil.
And we will divvy up their oil.
And we will cripple them with sanctions.
And let the Navy test their railguns.
And we will kill them here and there.
Say!  We can kill them ANYWHERE!

I do so like
the preemptive war scam.
Thank you!
Thank you,
President Sam-I-am
