Thoughts on The President’s Speech 10 Sept 2013

My anti-war rant occasioned by my President's urge for more war.

Enola Gay 
And bombs away! 

In Vietnam it was only napalm.
(And a little agent orange, for our own troops)

And if they complain 
We’ll bomb them again 
Until they cry out,"Uncle!" (Sam - that is)

As if that's not enough 
We did all that stuff, 
And then call ourselves exceptional.

We’re exceptional all right 
At causing great fright 
Among all those who aren’t just like us.

For a country as we 
With such a short history 
We’ve had more than our share of wars

First Britain (twice) 
And then, in a thrice, 
We attacked Spain and Mexico.

And in between 
Keeping our weapons keen. 
We turned to our own shores for battle.

Weapons of mass destruction?

Seven thousand eight hundred thirteen 
July 1-3 1863.

That’s mass destruction.

Dead people don’t care if it was from chemicals, radiation or bullets.

One parting thought:

In 1967, I put a bumper sticker on my car that read, “Bombing to End War is Like F**king to Reduce Population”.
