Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me:
There lie they, and here lie we
Under the spreading chestnut tree.
Trouble is Jim, no one else will do it. We are damned if we do and damned if we don't. That's why I have always said I don't give a rats ass what "the world" thinks of us, they will think badly of us no matter what we do.
Oh, but you forget, Jim, that somebody died and left us boss--of the world. What do you want to bet that our military presence in Haiti won't be fading anytime soon?
You're right -- I don't look for the current "surge" to wane anytime soon. As for the U.S. military presence, I'm guessing it never went away after the Clinton-administration intervention there. It may have gotten smaller ... but we just don't ever leave.
