Grotesque

One cannot help but be perplexed.  Our suited
Leaders loudly cheer the news of Zawahiri's
Murder.  Deadly man, a terrorist, he was,
A fundamentalist, who disagreed with all
Our leaders like to say that they support,
But wasn't it a week ago, or less than that,
That these same leaders groveled before
Saudi princes, whose views differ not at all
From those the man they murdered held?

Well nailed Lawrence! The hypocrisy and double standards of nations seeking only their own self-interest.

and besides, the leaders who declare war are older than the fighters, so let's say, their time is over

Bravo! You are spot on with the observation. In the end, maybe it all depends on how financially beneficial you might be to these 'suits'.
