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

China building and delivering subway rail cars for Chicago and Iran.

China's CRRC Corporation has won its second major contract in the United States after the Chicago transport authority accepted its 1.3 billion dollars bid to build rail cars for the city.
The Chicago Transit Authority said on Wednesday that it had awarded the order to build 846 rail cars to CRRC subsidiary CSR Sifang America, which had submitted the lowest bid.

The CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., a subsidiary of the China Railway Rolling Stock Corp., the country's biggest train manufacturer, announced on Wednesday that the subway cars developed for Iran have officially rolled off the assembly line in Changchun, the capital of Jilin province, according to the China News Service website. 
These subway trains will be used for operation on the subway Line 2 in Mashhad, Iran's holiest and second-biggest city. The order from Iran included a total of 100 vehicles, a portion of which will be produced by Tehran Wagon Manufacturing, a joint venture between Iran and the CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co.
