SCAPEGOAT…

O that our minds could wave the white flag of surrender
When the brutal memories of war attack
We lay there helpless and crippled in our sleep
As droplets of sweat pour from our backs

We twist and turn as if we could escape
The outcome of fire and the torrential rains
We dig a deep pit in which to hide
Only to uncover bleached white bones again

Sitting up in a haze of fevered confusion
Sheets clutched tightly within our grip
And the sounds we utter are but primal groans
But for the grace of God our very lives would slip

And we struggle to hang on to threads of sanity
While the haze of death clears from our eyes
As we sit there perched upon our feathered beds
And cry out into the darkness… WHY!

Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for...

Someday at Christmas...

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life's really worth
There'll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas we'll see a land
With no hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shining moment, one prayer away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate will be gone and love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime...

Or any other nation.

If you can "faithfully" serve George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan then you might just as well have served Saddam Hussein, Mohamed Hassan Aidid, Pol Pot, Augusto Pinochet, Idi Amin, Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler.

They are all just as much Fascist as Bush and Reagan.

Honestly RedButt, you ought to refrain from this pro-war, American propaganda theme of yours. You're not doing anyone any good and the only ones who encourage you are trolls who are winding you up for a Chatty Kathy good laugh.

You(we)should be honouring the truely brave Americans who fight a righteous war of truth. This is the most dangerous war of all and only the REALLY BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS are willing to wage it. And they are not doing it for promotion, medals or glory .... they are doing it FOR YOU!

Here are the American men who risk everything to give Americans pride: Sgt. Ron Kovic, Pfc. Bradley Manning, Airman David Hemler, Pfc. Bobby Garwood, Grant Collins, Jon Michael Turner, CIA Ray McGovern, Ethan McCord, Mike Prysner, Dale Anderson, Army specialist Darrell Anderson, Mike Patterson, Sgt. Matthis Chiroux, USMC Matt Howard, USN Joshua Shepherd, USMC Ramsey Clark, MLK ex-CIA John Stockwell, Congressman Ron Paul, Gen Smedley, and ex-Navy Seal Jesse Ventura.

Get off of yer-ass RedButt, and pitch in!

This from Mid-East news sources.....
"According to our correspondent, the US troops have secretly entered Iraq in multiple stages and are mostly stationed at Balad military garrison in Salahuddin province and al-Asad air base in al-Anbar province.

Reports say the troops include US Army officers and almost 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route.
US-led forces attacked Iraq in 2003 and toppled Saddam Hussein on the pretext of possessing weapons of mass destruction. But no WMD was ever discovered in Iraq. At the peak of the US-led military operation in Iraq, there were 170,000 US troops and more than 500 bases in Iraq.
More than one million Iraqis were killed as the result of the US-led invasion and subsequent occupation of the country, according to the California-based investigative organization Project Censored. "
Did one of the "MEN AND WOMEN OF THE ARMED SERVICES" forget to take home one of those WMD's we've heard so much about?

That's quite a mixed message.

But those guys don't deserve to be home for Chtistmas unless they find all of those WMD's. They're suppose to be finding WMD's not killing and torturing people.

Happy Christmas to you and your family as well!

SHORT TIMER’S STICK

Boiling point
212 degrees
Hot tropical raindrops
Dripping acid trees

Lurking in the bush
Just beyond the clearing
Death deals aces and eights
For those hard of believing

The day takes the breath
From steaming round wounds
And the cries of the unaware
Pierce the sky like the howling of wolves

One has to believe
In the jungles of pain
Where a man can enter the green
And never leave the same

Fate plays no favorites
And the enemy has a mind to kill
The squeeze of a trigger
Another beating heart stills

They say fear is just pain
Trying to escape
But losing the respect of vigilance
Equals a coffin flag draped

And the cautious man lives on
Though inside he suffers the loss
And the freedom he enjoys
Dims as he counts the great cost

Memories linger hauntingly
Yesterdays are as vivid as today
Three hundred sixty five notches on a stick,
Reveal his calendar of lifelong, Memorial days

Rose, just ignore ole Horse Manure. He is a bitter old man who hates America and is jealous of all she stands for. It will spew its filth and garbage and do everything it can to get a reply from the decent posters on any thread. It has no life and needs the feedback from posters on topix to validate its pathetic existence.

Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.

Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.

"In the re-creation of combat situations, and this is coming from a director who's never been in one, being mindful of what these veterans have actually gone through, you find that the biggest concern is that you don't look at war as a geopolitical endeavor." ~ Steven Spielberg

The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher plain.
