SCHOOLIES WEEK IN IRAQ..
here's a seriously dodgy thing I found in the newspaper yesterday.. apparently there's some new discussion goin' around govt. circles, about reintroducing CONSCRIPTION.. y'know that thing where they pull ya name out've a hat and tell you "congratulations YOU'RE GOING TO WAR TO DIE FOR YA COUNTRY WAHOOOOO!!!". Coz, wot with all of Johnny (Chimp) Howard's gibbering about us following USA's lead in "launching pre-emptive strikes against despot regimes we don't like the smell of" around the world, we're gonna need an army big enough to spread around..
now, this has GOT to be THE MOST STUPID idea I've heard of..
coz, well.. lets remember how well our last act of CONSCRIPTION got us... anyone remember VIETNAM?
give the country something worth fighting for, and you'll have a standing army of volunteers willing to do the country proud.. but, if you're merely following the petty interests of some OTHER country and their grudges with regimes they "dont like" (just so you could.. I dunno, just maybe.. get a sweet "free trade agreement" out've the blood pact), then.. you'll be dragging your unwilling youth population kickin' n screaming into the deal.. they wouldn't VOTE for it.. but, they sure as hell will DIE for it..
but.. the way I see it.. you shouldn't need to do this at all..
here's my solution..
host SCHOOLIES WEEK in IRAQ!
got a problem overseas? need a good offensive force to demolish your enemies? simple! host SCHOOLIES WEEK there!
imagine the IRAQI army, scrambling to cope with thousands of drunken teenagers partying into the wee hours of the morning.. imagine whole weapons facilities being wiped out by massive open-air rock festivals.. chuckle with mad-scientist glee as the mosh-pit devours everything in it's path..
remember the horror of WOODSTOCK '99?
wot about ROSKILDE 2000?
BIG DAY OUT 2000?
wot about any beachside resort in AUSTRALIA this time of year? :-)
imagine if you could make this your own weapon of mass destruction?
who needs CONSCRIPTION.. when you've got a hoard of lunatics ready and willing to TRASH EVERYTHING IN THEIR WAY!
(note: for those of you overseas unaware of "SCHOOLIES", simply think "SPRING BREAK", or anything else involving hoards of demented graduates partying like animals.. :-)
