Three trillion dollars spent for the “war on terror” and “spreading democracy”
Your mighty military just surrendered to a regional extremist group.
The effort of two decades evaporated in a matter of a week.
Soldiers escaping, leaving behind countless patriotic collaborators
To be slaughtered by the madmen of the conquerors.
Similar defeat in Vietnam, two score years ago
The scene of army helicopters packed with defeated soldiers,
Escaping from the rooftop of the Saigon embassy.
History repeating itself, now from the rooftop of Kabul embassy.
Oh America, the world’s oldest democracy
Why didn’t your leaders learn from Russia’s defeat in the same land?
