The Dogs of War

Dear George,

Those who pay attention (praise God, they are few and far between) bemoan the terrible conditions in Gaza: the overcrowded hospitals, children who cling to dead parents for days before they are rescued, the indiscriminate bombing of civilians, and the lack of food and water.

Well, Goddamn it Big Guy, I think it’s time we emphasized the positive, here.

The dogs of Gaza are fat and happy. They’re eating the corpses.

Talk about a silver lining…

Your admirer,
Belacqua Jones

Belacqua you "Sick Puppy,"
Well they do say that "every dog has its day," even it appears in that Allah, God-forsaken place called the Gaza Ghetto!

Like Gordon Gekko said in "Wall Street", white folks care more about animals than people. So, if the dogs are happy, the white folks are happy.

If the dogs are happy... Oh my.

This particular letter was horrifyingly good.
