Right is Might

by Mark Chmiel

Secretary of State John Kerry asserted
About Russia’s behavior in Crimea:

“It is not appropriate to invade a country
And at the end of a barrel of a gun

Dictate what you are trying to achieve
That is not 21st century, G-8, major-nation behavior”

It’s only appropriate
When the United States does it

Like way back in the 20th century
When the U.S. invaded Vietnam in 1965

Or just before the Cold War ended
When the U.S. invaded Panama in 1989

Or more recently
When the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003

N.B.: The U.S. being the major-est nation of all
Has rights no one else has
