Please understand that American men and women must die to defend the Caspian oil pipeline, and to protect our country from the next U.S. sponsored Iraqi dictator. $12 billion a month, 4000+ American body bags, and tens of thousands of war cripples is a drop in the bucket when compared to the threat of dried-up filling stations and a possible nuclear salvo originating from the former Babylonian empire.
Your children must be sacrificed for the continuing Iraqi meat-grinding effort. How would you feel if all those soldiers died in vain? George W. Bush would not call for the wholesale slaughter of your lower-class born babies unless the cause was noble and just. Hell, we all die in the end.
Are you believing the morning papers?
War is coming back in style
There are generals here, advisers there
and [Islamicists] nibbling everywhere
The chessboard’s filling up with [Jihadists]
We make profits when we blow off their heads
Economy is looking bad
Let’s start another war when ya get drafted
Fan the fires of racist hatred
We want total war when ya get drafted
Playing with missiles like they’re toys
There’s easy money, easy jobs
Especially when you build the bombs
That blow big cities off the map
Just guess who profits when we build ’em back up
Yeah, what Big Business wants Big Business gets
It wants a war when ya get drafted
Trilateral Commission goonies laugh
and scheme for more when ya get drafted
Call the Army!
Call the Navy!
Stocked with kids from slums when ya get drafted
If you can’t afford a slick attorney
We might make you a spy
Forget your demonstrations
Kids today sit on their ass when ya get drafted
Just a six-pack
And you’re happy
For when ya get drafted ~ The Dead Kennedys (When Ya Get Drafted)
War does not determine who is right – only who is left ~Bertrand Russell
