“A devastating witness to the failure of politics to guard mankind against itself”.
After two decaying decades, with the U.S’s. “normal”,withdrawal from Afghanistan, in a much Vietnam-syndrome style (*), the now World famous “CrocodileTears Band” has launched their latest hit (a repeat adapted from Ray Charles’s “Crying Time”) …:
When it’s cryin‘ time again, you’re gonnaleave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes…
I can tell by the way you hold on to the last chopper
That it won’t be long before it’s cryin‘ time
When it’s cryin‘ time again, you’re gonnaneed me
I can see how far it took you to the skies…
Now you say you’ve found somewhere whereyou feel better (better)
That’s the way it’s happened every time before.
(With all due respect and apologies to the Great Ray Charles).
