Masters Of War

Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build all the bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks I just want you to know I can see through your masks. You that never done nothin' But build to destroy You play with my world Like it's your little toy You put a gun in my hand And you hide from my eyes And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly. Like Judas of old You lie and deceive A world war can be won You want me to believe But I see through your eyes And I see through your brain Like I see through the water That runs down my drain. You fasten all the triggers For the others to fire Then you set back and watch When the death count gets higher You hide in your mansion' As young people's blood Flows out of their bodies And is buried in the mud. You've thrown the worst fear That can ever be hurled Fear to bring children Into the world For threatening my baby Unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood That runs in your veins. How much do I know To talk out of turn You might say that I'm young You might say I'm unlearned But there's one thing I know Though I'm younger than you That even Jesus would never Forgive what you do. Let me ask you one question Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness Do you think that it could I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die And your death'll come soon I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Down to your deathbed And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead.------- Bob Dylan 1963

Pentagon's Hagel plans to downsize US military

BBC News - Pentagon's Chuck Hagel plans to downsize US military:

"Mr Hagel said at the Pentagon on Monday: "This is a time for reality.

"This is a budget that recognises the reality of the magnitude of our fiscal challenges."

He added: "There are difficult decisions ahead. That is the reality we're living with."

The number of active-duty US Army members was already expected to be pared down to 490,000, as the US prepares to end its combat role in Afghanistan later this year.

Noting the current US Army strength, Mr Hagel added: "Since we are no longer sizing the force for prolonged stability operations, an Army of this size is larger than required to meet the demands of our defence strategy.""

Thought - Every time Hagel and the Obamagon try to ramp up the fear/threat to US rhetoric, this action is all that has to be mentioned.

This is simply due to the Repealicans refusing to cooperate with that nigger in their White House.
But, before you bash the nigger - think back to Rumsfeld and what he did. And don't forget that that asshole called off a hit on Bin-Laden. The nigger took care of that as did he with those pirate fucks with the Marask Alabana and Captian Phillips.
