Queen's Shilling Irishmen in Afghanistan

category galway | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Saturday July 31, 2010 15:30author by TD - Free Palestine Campaign Report this post to the editors

Baa baa black sheep ... three bags full

Instead of being "cannon fodder for the Russian masses on the German plains," Queen's shilling Irishmen can now engage in imperial conquest in Afghanistan. Happily, they are "not stepping off to Afghanistan with the words of the prime minister ringing in their ears.” Ovinely, “they are going because the guy next to them is going.”

Hennessy's next recruiting blurb, it is rumoured, is for the US army's death squad in Afghanistan; Task Force 373. “It’s fun to shoot some people ... have a plan to kill everybody you meet " (Gen. James Mattis; Obama's new CentCom war lord).
