This Is Not a Permanent Base

If you've been wondering what we should do about the apparently permanent military bases which we are constructing in Iraq and which are causing so much unrest among Iraqis, Fafnir has the answer:
Should we keep permanent bases in Iraq or should we leave the area completely? Why not do both! The compromise: keep our permanent bases, but put up great big pieces a cardboard around em with paintings of permanent bases on em. Then paint signs on the paintings of the permanent bases that say "Ceci n'est pas une permanent base." That way when Iraqis wander by they'll just take our militarization of their country as a whimsical statement on the elusive nature of representation.
