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

Cancerous Culture: Top Army Prosecutor For Sexual Assault Cases Suspended For...Yes. | Common Dreams

Cancerous Culture: Top Army Prosecutor For Sexual Assault Cases Suspended For...Yes. | Common Dreams

Today, even as a bill heads to the Senate to strip senior military commanders of authority to prosecute rape and other sexual crimes due to their lousy record on same - which is why nine out of 10 sexual assault victims are said not to report their attack - the Army announced it was suspending Lt. Col. Joseph “Jay” Morse, who supervises sexual assault prosecution, for allegedly sexually assaulting a female Army lawyer in a hotel room during - wait for it - a sexual assault legal conference

Well yesterday the bill to stop commander's from using the "boy's will be boy's approach to sexual assaults was filibustered in the Senate. They did vote 100-0 to have a civilian oversee a commander's decision.
I ask, unless that civilian is within the DOD - like a Under Secretary of Defense what difference will that make? The bottom line is this - You stop tolerating this shit from the top down and the bottom up!
