From Afghan Moonbeam newspaper, yesterday :
General McChrystal made an appearance at a small Brooklyn nightclub today to announce the launch of Operation "Enduring Bullshit" , a massive military undertaking designed to quell any doubts the public might have about the gains the army was making in Afghanistan.
"The strategy is brilliant but simple," McChrystal stated. "We 're going to mount up. Mobilise everything we've got. Tanks. Planes. Helicopters, you name it. Then we're going to form a giant circle and we're basically going to go round and round, shooting at anything that moves and making a whole lot of noise and commotion."
Journalist : "What happens after that, General ?"
McChrystal : "Well, we basically just keep going round and round until everyone loses interest or we run out of gas and then we turn off the engines and sit tight until the Pentagon tells us who our new enemies are. Since we kind of think that's going to be China , we figure we're going to be in the right place anyway."
Responding to a journalist's suggestion that the whole Afghanistan venture was just another lame-ass attempt to justify outrageous Pentagon budgets, McChrystal strongly disagreed, saying he would have used the word "ridiculous" rather than "outrageous".
