We should never underestimate the ability of Americans to shOot themselves in the foot. The hymn chosen for yesterday’s wrath laying ceremony at Ground Zero TO COMMEMORATE THE 9/11 DEAD was the unsurpassably inappropriate ” The Son Of God Goes Forth To War.”
The lyric starts off like this:
The Son of God goes forth to war,
A kingly crown to gain,
His blood red banner streams afar,
Who follows in his train.
It then goes on in the same vein for several more verses. Now call Little Nicky a namby – pamby appeaser if you like but I would have thought that is just asking for trouble. Its a bit like slapping your enemy’s face with your golve and then unzipping your pants and pissing on his boots.
So are we surprised to hear on this morning’s news that the U.S. Embassy in Damascus is under attack?
All together now,
NO WE’RE NOT LITTLE NICKY.
