Music Break: “Call Me Maybe” in Afghanistan

August 25, 2012

Combine the catchiest tune of this summer, or maybe any summer, and a foreign policy black hellhole of hopeless violence and futility.
Last thing in the world I’m going to do is question how our guys in extreme circumstances blow off steam and boost morale. Whatever it takes, blessings on all of them, and more power to them.

Still, this rapidly-gone-viral vid is exuberantly, unabashedly  jarring, aberrant and strange.

    It is time for decent Americans to call the occupation of Afghanistan what it is…. a war crime.

    It’s shocking that so many morally bankrupt little twerps are high fiving this video on YouTube.

    The moral turpitude of this nation resembles that of Germany circa 1940.

    I’d say more like November, 1944, but no matter…

    What would you expect? Little boys, raised with too little love and then abandoned and misled (not necessarily in that order) by much older little boys similarly raised… From the Rove-Cheney administration to Bush the Lesser part deux, aka the Obama administration, from Koch to Hayward to Murdoch to the 100 million Seargant Schultzes in all the purple states… little boys and girls.

    This is part 2 of the Abu Ghraib photo story. SOS.

    Some adults need to step in and stop all these children from burning the house down. SOS. Isn’t it time we all pitched in and took the matches away from the children?

    I did not think I would ever see this song coupled with launching mortars or lifting weights. Haha, reminds me of a video of some American soldiers in Iraq driving a van around blaring party music after asking random contractors where the party was at.
