OK, serious face on, this is no joking matter. Machiavelli may have a track record for ridiculing the governments inept and incoherent approach to managing its wars but we find nothing in the least amusing in the news that – snuffle, snigger chuckle, tee hee, sorry! – I repeat we find nothing amusing in the news that 25% of the budget – hohohohaahaahaar – allocated for sustaining the operation is being spent on – snarf, arf, snigger, hurrum – on hiring private security firms to protect our military bases waaahoohohohahahaa Blairs legacy my arse.
But really it is NOT FUNNY. Our troops deserve better and if we cant support them properly in doing the job they have been asked to do then we should bring them home now and apologise for betraying the trust they put in their nation.
(And if any rabid Nazi, like the three that commented last time I ridiculed this illegal war, tries to tell me I am wrong and the war is a glorious triumph, you will bring down upon yourself such withering sarcasm that you will be reduced to a pool of slimy brown liquid. Got that?)
