6/12/2012 ANDY'S INSIGHTS & UNPOPULAR PLAYS. A One Page Play: the Pentagon in Pakistan.
Curtain UP: Three US Pentagon (PEN) Generals are talking to three Pakistani Generals (PAK) in Islamabad. The US Generals were given chairs a little shorter than the Pakistani Generals.
PEN. "We really need the roads open into Afghanistan. Please open the roads, please, please."
PAK. "Did anyone at the Pentagon ever look at a Map before you started piling all kinds of junk into Afghanistan?"
PEN. "That wasn't our job. What we need now is the roads open. Please with sugar and cupcakes on top."
PAK. "Why are you Americans even in that Hell hole?"
PEN. "We're there because al Qaeda is attacking us."
PAK. "Did you ever think that if you weren't there then maybe they wouldn't be attacking you?"
PEN. "We need the roads open. Please with honey on top."
PAK. "We want $5,000 per truck; $5,000 going in and another $5,000 coming out. We want to be paid for everything. When the people on the side of the road spit on the trucks we want $25 per spit."
PEN. "That's going to be a lot of money."
PAK. "Just think of us as Zionists. If you can be their whores then you can be our whores too."
PEN. "Okay, whatever you want. Thank you, thank you."
PAK. "Put it all in writing and get it back to us in an hour. We'll look at it when we have time, and don't call us we'll call you."
