A Mouse Sets A House Alight: The Story of Bin Laden And America


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

In New Mexico, a man threw a small mouse on a fire, it ran inside his house while burning and burned his house down. I see a moral to this story.

From Yahoo:
A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.
This is far and away, the most popular emailed story on the net according to Yahoo and one can see why.

Unfortunately, it is also a perfect metaphor for what we are doing today in the war on terror. We set a big fire in Afghanistan and Iraq, threw the bin Laden mouse on the fire, it escaped and ran back into its hole which is the entire Muslim world which is now beginning to burn. We see the smoke coming out of various crevasses and we can smell this fire but we can't find the burning mouse which is now deep inside.

So we speculate about if the burning mouse is dead as if this matters one whit since it is still burning!

The fire can burn down the entire Imperial Village. Unfortunately for us, the burning mouse knows how to make video tapes and issues them periodically to us, taunting us to find it and put out its fire. It even made this tape showing the mouse on fire, smiling happily and saying, "This was all part of my plan, to get you to set me on fire so I can burn your house down, God told me to do this!"

All the news from the burning house is nasty. Just this week, a whole bunch of Americans burned up and died, we can see people jumping from the upper story windows, screaming as they fall. The smoke is thicker and thicker, darkening the sun. The UN fire department has been effectively destroyed by the same guy who tossed the bin Laden mouse on the fire because he thought it cost too much and was ineffective. He thought his Pentagon Hose would put out the fire only his friends pumped the well dry, filling swimming pools and watering golf courses so he is off to the Japanese neighbors with a bucket to beg for water only they want him to sign the papers giving them the property which they intend to build on once the house is destroyed.

Gads. Maybe I shouldn't go on with this story.
