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

All Quiet in the Eurasian Front by Pepe Escobar

All Quiet in the Eurasian Front

>>>>>>>>>>>>>It may be enlightening to go back to what happened nine years ago, at the Munich security conference. Vladimir Putin already could see it coming, if not in detail at least conceptually. The inevitable geo-economic expansion of China via the One Belt, One Road (OBOR), the official denomination of the New Silk Roads – which are bound to unify Eurasia. The steady progress of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), evolving from a sort of Asian economic/trade community towards a sort of Asian NATO as well. The success of the “4+1” coalition in Syria should be read as a precursor to the SCO’s increased international role.
What’s left for the Empire of Chaos in the Eurasian front is the wishful thinking of attempting to encircle both Russia and China, while both keep actually expanding all across the Eurasian Heartland, shedding US dollars and buying gold, signing a flurry of contracts in yuan and selling oil and gas to all and sundry. Under Pressure? Well, call it a song by Queen and David Bowie; It's the terror of knowing/What this world is about/Watching some good friends/Screaming, "Let me out!"
