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

I'm not sure if the GOP can find a candidate to oust Obama in 2012, but I can already see Petraeus staying on for that potential transition.

It's also amusing how the Washington establishment and mainstream media have spun Petraeus and Gate's movements. Petraeus will continue to have his hands in Afghanistan, but it almost looks like they're jumping ship.

Unless the wars escalate, they will not be the deciding factor in 2012.

It will be the economy. One that is getting worst and worst by the Quarter. He can not pull the economy out.

Romney just beat him in a poll taken in New Hampshire.

Yes, it seems Patreus is in for life.

The title to this article was spot on.
Except he should have added one word.
A more "COVERT" militarized CIA.
