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

In Pivot to Asia, US Military Reinforces Its Foothold in the Pacific

In Pivot to Asia, US Military Reinforces Its Foothold in the Pacific

The US is trying to form a new Pacific/Asian form of NATO.

Not only on the military front, but also on the economic front.
The TPP is one more step toward the containment and encroachment on China.
It will fail.

This will be another arc of chaos for the West.
Japan is now militarizing to take the lead.
The Philippines are welcoming more US bases.
Australia is another lackey for the US in the Pacific.
Vietnam is climbing on board.
India is teetering on the waves to join in.
S/Korea has US bases that are a hindrance to peace on the peninsula.
Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia are also in the mix.

The US is weaponizing its share of Eastern Asia to show the big stick.
The military industrial complex must be fed.
It will never go on a diet.

This will not be a cold war, it will be a frozen war.

Would the US risk having WW III over Taiwan?
