It is high time for direct communication. No matter if it be clumsy, even stupid. Afghanistan is in peril ~ has been, it seems, forever ~ and will be forever ~ unless I be bold & speak forth. I am expert at nothing ~ especially that faraway nation a-crumble. I am, though, an American citizen & it is my duty, I believe, to save it. And so I will ~ beginning right now!
I write to whomever comes across these words. If nobody else comes along, I still fiddle. If I’m fiddling for only myself, perchance it’s best this way. However, if more than one other entity happens along ~ patriots, let’s riot!
After over 100 posts published of Old Timer Chronicle II ~ more or less exploring the idea of Afghanistan ~ I am now capable enough to do a Sufi spin on this toy piano. So if it not be too repulsive, kind reader, please witness.
I’m a whirling now ~ moaning ~ moaning rhythmically ~ the vibration hits the street, catapults thru the sky & into your glorious brain, sister, brother! Ho ho ho, Afghanistan!!!
Probably the most wonderful thing America has ever done is invade this war-torn land. Trouble is, I feel like I am the only mortal who knows it. So I’ve spun some fictional characters so that I don’t feel so all alone. One of them is Capt’n Chuck Fiddler. But the best & up-most beloved, passionately beloved, is the earthly & miraculously divine Col. Sheena Johnson. Both of the US Army, these personalities brimful of intrigue & curiosity, live & venture forth via verse in this issue of the Old Timer ~ https://oldtimerchronicle2.wordpress.com/2014/01/29/the-afghaneeland-adventure-series ~ so be it.
The best thing about invading the remarkable & furious Afghanistan is that the U.S. got to avenge the tragic September 11th, 200l, invasion of our own. So the next time a Taliban whines about our brutality in Afghanistan, let him kick himself in the ass for letting Ben Laden use his country as a platform to murder so many Americans & topple our majestic towers in New York City.
The worst thing about our invading the quaint abode of inquisitive goats and prayerful spiritualities (Afghanistan) is before we finished the job we interrupted it with ~ Iraq! So be it.
Now ~ dubious & illustrious Iran ~ the central remnant of romantic Persia ~ is surrounded, fragile like, by the vibrantly fragile democracies of Iraq & Afghanistan. Isn’t America wily! And now we’ve got Iran at the negotiating table talking ~ nuclear eligibility. And we both got the same enemy now ~ Al Qaeda ~ out of Saudi Arabia ~ birthed by the fanatical Wahabes & now attacking Syria, Iran’s ally.
Pakistan, our sulking ally with its military blathering outta both sides its mouth, is next ~ now surrounded by the looming democracy of Afghanistan & the booming democracy of India. Democracy is free-will. Taliban Sharia Law is tyranny. Sorry.
