How To Win the War
Dear Mr. President:
Fire no shot. Protect no buildings, utilities, antiquities or people.
Just have the Iraqi military and people and, of course, yourself and your
family stand your ground. Stand your ground, and be ground under US treads.
Stand your ground, and be bombed into total obliteration. But don’t fire
back. Don’t attack. Don’t defend. Then Iraq will win the war.
It’s called “Gandhi Tech.”
It certainly worked for Gandhi and India. And it can work for you and Iraq.
Gandhi Tech hasn’t been tried in the middle of a live ammunition
military assault, but it is guaranteed to work exactly as it worked for Gandhi
when his people stood their ground and took some hits from British batons.
That the U.S. and its allies of the willing will rain down on your country
and your people not wooden batons but the most destructive force of focused
death and horror the world has ever witnessed just gives you an opportunity to
win a bigger, even more worthy war than the one Gandhi’s people died
The Americans won’t lose a soldier, unless to what they call “
friendly fire.” And you won’t lose any of your people to friendly
fire, because they won’t be firing.
The Axis of the Willing won’t lose the war, because they get to kill
everyone who they even imagine stands in their way. And you’ll win the
war, if you correctly apply Gandhi Tech. It shouldn’t take more than a
couple of days. It’s what we call a win-win situation.
Be brave. Give it a try. What have you got to lose?
And don't forget, Gandhi was, as he said, also a Muslim.
Call me if you have any questions.
