Monologue Mania Day # 1148 Just Rewards by Janet S. Tiger (c) April 5, 2017

                                 A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved 2017

   (Man with military bearing enters, a generic hat would be nice.  He has an accent, also generic, maybe Syrian?)

Thank you for this opportunity to speak and clear up some misunderstandings.

I am still not sure why everyone is so upset with me and my troops.

The civilians are clear, they do not like the bombings of their cities and villages and houses.  It is hard once your house has been flattened like a piece of pita.

And if someone is inside, it is very messy afterwards.   The dead body must be removed carefully, and if the bomb has made the body into many pieces, this is more difficult.

So we have solved this problem by using only the chemicals - which serve two valuable purposes - it kills the people quickly and leaves the houses intact.  And so, for the people left behind, they have a place to live!  This is a good thing!

And if a person has died, there is only the dead body - all in one piece! - to bury.....once the chemical has dissipated of course.

So I do not understand why this court is accusing me of crimes against humanity.  I am only trying to help.  Thank you!

           (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

I honestly believe I should be getting....a medal!

Chilling but probably accurate.
