Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn.
Where is the boy that looks after the sheep?
"He's under the haycock, fast asleep."
Will you wake him? "No, not I;
For if I do, he'll be sure to cry."
--Little Boy Blue, Mother Goose
You make me run from god
You make me terrified
I pray the lord your soul to keep
I hope you wake before you die
--Evil is So Civilised, Boy George
Retired Lt. General Ricardo Sanchez added his name to the lengthening list of retired officers who have miraculously found the courage to speak out against the flub-up that is the Iraq War, once their retirement pay is secured ("No End in Sight" in Iraq.)
"There is no question that America is living a nightmare with no end in sight," Sanchez said. He broadly criticized the State Department, the National Security Council, Congress and the senior military leadership "during what appeared to be a broad indictment of White House policies and a lack of leadership to oppose them." [Lt. Gen. Sanchez would be among the last cohort he blamed, but this may have escaped his notice.]
In fact, the Commander is responsible for all that the troops do or fail to do. In the Iraq goat-screw, substitute Commander-in-Chief for commander.
Take away all of the other ancillaries, and you are left with the one person to blame: Boy George.
