Wesley Clark Sketches an Exit Plan for Iraq; Meanwhile, Charles Rangel talks impeachment; Plus, the first blog I ever wrote...

Beyond possible, it is absolutely necessary: we've learned nothing. We have to start now in order to feel better, we're getting morally weakened and intellectually destroyed by the Leaders of the Free World, and we all feel it incredibly deeply without understanding it. A friend mentioned that depression is now "in", and as long as we accept it as "normal" then we will continue to become more depressed. We all know enough to know that this war makes the least sense of any in history, and the more we buy the lies, the less our lives make sense...

The game is so simple it's downright embarrassing: those who benefit from war endorse it, and everyone else in the world pays the costs...

Wesley Clark Sketches an Exit Plan for Iraq

Meanwhile, Charles Rangel talks impeachment

September 23rd, 2005 10:54 PM

The grief and outrage that Cindy Sheehan and the other dissenting military families have evoked this week in Washington, D.C., is palpable, as is the evidence they muster of just how careless this administration was in putting their loved ones at risk for the Iraq war.

But in calling for an immediate withdrawal, the peace movement can’t duck a central question: Just how do we leave?

On Friday, Sheehan appeared on a Congressional Black Caucus breakfast panel with General Wesley Clark, the former NATO commander and presidential hopeful, who was there to address the issue of whether the U.S. can “win” the war in Iraq.

“We’re involved in a war that we didn’t have to fight. That’s the simple truth,” Clark said. “Now it’s in trouble, deep trouble. I wish it was just as simple as saying, Mr. President, you made a mistake, get those troops out now."

The trouble is, he continued, that the Islamic extremists “really do want to attack us. Getting out of Iraq will be a great defeat for us unless we do it in the right way.”

Clark said the anti-war movement should demand that Bush establish a “regional dialogue with other Arab states, including people we don’t like, like Syria and Iran,” and focus on “changing the minds and cutting off the recruiting” of those now blowing up tanks and buses in Iraq.

“We need to turn off the flow of weapons and fighters going into Iraq and turn off the invective and fears and create a climate where the Iraqis don’t need to fight each other,” he said. “And then we can come home.”

Speaking of the expected 100,000 strong anti-war march on Saturday, Clark told Sheehan and the other military families arrayed in the audience that they should “march with the flag, because this is about the future of America.”

It was all too much for Carlos Arredondo of Roslindale, Massachusetts, who lost his 20-year-old son in Iraq. He ran up to the podium holding a hand-lettered “IMPEACH” sign.

Clark smiled and shook his head. “This should not be a partisan issue,” he said. “America is only strong when we come together. This is really about changing the direction this country is heading in. We have to bring people together from all walks of life.”

At this, Charles Rangel, the moderator, stepped in: “I’ve been here 35 years, and I know impeachment when I see it,” said the New York congressman. “If the president knew there were no weapons of mass destruction and knew there was no connection between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, and if the president knew the Iraqis were not involved in the attack on the twin towers and still allowed our nation to believe that we had to invade Iraq for it, then I’m a lawyer and a former federal prosecutor, and these are impeachable offenses,” he said, to a burst of applause from the audience.

When it was her turn to speak, Sheehan stuck to her demand that we get out now. “Yes, there are people who want to kill us. But they want to kill us because we’re killing innocent Arabs and Muslims," she said. "I’m afraid we’re creating enemies that are going to endanger my grandchildren. That’s why I do what I do.

"Right now they’re spending billions of dollars building military bases in Iraq the size of Sacramento," Sheehan continued. "If there’s one thing we as a peace movment have to agree on, it's that we have to get out of Iraq now, as soon as possible, because these maniacs plan on our children never coming home."

Jihad vs. Journalism

On Sundays, The Toronto Star newspaper has an excellent World section, offering depth unseen in daily reporting (as more history and geography are discussed for context), and relevant Op/Ed pieces from around the world. An interesting juxtaposition of the two happened on December 5th, 2004, and it is one that is happening in papers and magazines worldwide as they discuss the War in Iraq.

On the cover was the story "Inside Fallujah" by Anthony Shadid from The Washington Post, focusing on Abu Mohammed, a 39 year-old Iraqi insurgent fighting for what he clearly sees as liberating his homeland, and whose 13-year old son Ahmed was recently killed in battle. On page three, an Op/Ed piece ironically titled "Troops Must Stay To Protect Iraqi Children" from Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times, who suggests that while attacking Iraq was certainly a mistake, the U.S. has to stay as long as possible to ensure the safety of the Iraqi children.

So: Page 1 vs. Page 3. The Insurgent vs. The Columnist. The Iraqi vs.The American. The Mujahideen vs. The NY Times.

Both sides want peace, both are willing to kill for it, one is willing to die for it, but who's right? Today, it is both common practice and incredibly dangerous to reflexively say both positions are equal, as that thinking is now being used to neutralize harsh criticism of any actions, and in alarming cases, facts. It is also mind-numblingly lazy to dismiss analysis and opinions as simply from the "left" or "right", and to avoid searching for a moral hierarchy especially in matters of life and death. Judged closer from any angle, we can see traces of arrogance in dismissing the immediate Iraqi bodycount as irrelevant to long-term planning, and we have to recognize the biggest danger to the immediate security of the Iraqi people is American soldier. In fact, one probably killed Ahmed Mohammed. This is not to say that American soldiers are bad people - they're merely doing what they are trained to do, or that pulling out immediately is the right answer. But, this does own up to the stark reality that more Iraqi's are being killed by American actions than by anything else, and as the insurgency grows this will continue.

So, what to do?

It seems all we have to do is whisper "a future breeding ground for terrorists" and people will start screaming "we have to stay!" However, I have seen no proof that current actions are achieving better results, nor that they are increasing the desire of moderate Arabs to turn against extremists. It seems the whole world is now a much larger breeding ground for terrorists, and I haven't seen any analysis guaranteeing changing course would fail beyond histrionics that maintain the status quo. In recognizing this, we can see that quickly validating a long-term solution only entrenches the idea that everyone (save perhaps for those profiting from the war) hates the most: America occupying Iraq for a long, long time. Before accepting this, aren't we smart enough to think of any other solutions? Can't we challenge our leaders to be?

As both sides settle in for an increasingly bloody conflict, the moral lapses accepted to fight an increasingly difficult war will haunt the world for generations (see: Guantanamo Bay), and destroy lives on both sides. The costs to the Iraqi people in general are brushed over in broadstrokes, and while liberty, freedom, and democracy are great, if you tell that to people while destroying their country, don't be surprised when they bristle at the hypocrisy of you caring more about their future than their present. For America to make this democratic omelette they are more than breaking a few eggs, they are taking a few lives.

Mr. Kristof in his first point quotes a study in the respected British medical journal, The Lancet, that suggests 100,000 Iraqi's have been killed so far, and incredibly, in the same short section details some of the awful conditions Iraqi's face as a result of looters stealing air-conditioners from hospitals, among other lawless Iraqi actions. He conveniently avoids American involvement in the deaths of 100,000 Iraqi's in suggesting them as a saviour, and is being dishonest in quoting that study and then only listing Iraqi threats to the safety of the Iraqi people.

His second point lists the humanitarian crisis with respect to water, food, and child mortality rates, stirring stuff, but also completely ignoring the biggest cause of the deaths of Iraqi children. All that tugging at my heartstrings had them frayed, but when they finally snapped, I got it: I can be sold anything if you tell me children are suffering, tell me you'll fix it, and tell me to look the other way as the tragedy is too great to bear witness. Sure, I'll allow for the possibility that tripling the number of American troops will save more Iraqi children, but if we look at every other "hot war" in history, adding more troops only adds more people trained to kill, leading to more killing. Rocket science this ain't. Finally, if you look at the most recent and analogous precedent of people defending their country against perceived U.S. aggression, over time you can foreshadow a similar bodycount: 58,000 Americans and 3 million Vietnamese.

So, it seems that conventional wisdom, or the most sensible "middle" position in a time of extremes, is: "we broke it, we'll fix it!" It sounds perfectly reasonable in the abstract, and shows taking responsibility for the mess caused. However, much like fixing up a house, if you see the builders have done a shoddy job (do I have to list the mistakes made even the Pentagon agrees with?) then you don't give them carte blanche to continue unquestioned until they get it right. You demand to see a revised plan, and you demand to know exactly what they will do to fix the problems caused and ensure they don't happen again. Before glossing over the occupation as a necessary evil fo the next few years, we need to see that mistakes will not be repeated, and that actions will truly reflect sentiments like "Troops Must Stay To Protect Iraqi Children". A continuation of the same course will only worsen anti-American sentiment in the Arab world, and attract others including more children to the insurgency. The idea that America has to stay for as long as possible specifically for the benefit of the Iraqi people is not a conclusion one should arrive at lightly, and as badly damaged as their houses are, I'm sure many Iraqi's like Abu Mohammed just want to go home.

British Special Forces Caught Carrying Out Staged Terror In Iraq?

Media blackout shadows why black op soldiers were arrested

Paul Joseph Watson | September 20 2005

In another example of how the Iraqi quagmire is deliberately designed to degenerate into a chaotic abyss, British SAS were caught attempting to stage a terror attack and the media have dutifully shut up about the real questions surrounding the incident.

What is admitted is that two British soldiers in Arab garb and head dress drove a car towards a group of Iraq police and began firing. According to the Basra governor Mohammed al-Waili, one policeman was shot dead and another was injured. Pictured below are the wigs and clothing that the soldiers were wearing.

The Arab garb is obviously undeniable proof that the operation, whatever its ultimate intention, was staged so that any eyewitnesses would believe it had been carried out by Iraqis.

This has all the indications of a frame up.

This is made all the more interesting by the fact that early reports cited as originating from BBC World Service radio stated that the car used contained explosives.

Was this another staged car bombing intended to keep tensions high? As you will discover later, the plan to keep Iraq divided and in turmoil is an actual policy directive that spans back over two decades.

The BBC reports that the car did contain, "assault rifles, a light machine gun, an anti-tank weapon, radio gear and medical kit. This is thought to be standard kit for the SAS operating in such a theatre of operations."

And are fake bushy black wigs and turbans standard kit for the SAS?

What happened to the early reports of explosives? Why has the media relentlessly reported on the subsequent rescue effort and failed to address these key questions?

The soldiers were arrested and taken to a nearby jail where they were confronted and interrogated by an Iraqi judge.

The initial demand from the puppet authorities that the soldiers be released was rejected by the Basra government. At that point tanks were sent in to 'rescue' the terrorists and the 'liberated' Iraqis started to riot, firebombing and pelting stones at the vehicles injuring British troops as was depicted in this dramatic Reuters photo.

As the SAS were being rescued 150 prisoners escaped from the jail. Was this intentional or just a result of another botched black op?

From this point on media coverage was monopolized by accounts of the rescue and the giant marauding pink elephant in the living room, namely why the soldiers were arrested in the first place, was routinely ignored.

The only outlet to ask any serious questions was Australian TV news which according to one viewer gave, "credibility to the 'conspiracy theorists' who have long claimed many terrorist acts in Iraq are, in fact, being initiated and carried out by US, British and Israeli forces."

Iran's top military commander Brigadier General Mohammad-Baqer Zolqadr pointed the finger at the occupational government last week by publicly stating,

“The Americans blame weak and feeble groups in Iraq for insecurity in this country. We do not believe this and we have information that the insecurity has its roots in the activities of American and Israeli spies,” Zolqadr said.

“Insecurity in Iraq is a deeply-rooted phenomenon. The root of insecurity in Iraq lies in the occupation of this country by foreigners”.

“If Iraq is to become secure, there will be no room for the occupiers”.

That explanation has a lot of currency amongst ordinary Iraqis who have been direct witnesses to these bombings.

In the past we’ve asked questions about why so-called car bombings leave giant craters, in addition with eyewitness reports that helicopters were carrying out the attacks.

Throughout history we see the tactic of divide and conquer being used to enslave populations and swallow formerly sovereign countries by piecemeal. From the British stirring up aggression between different Indian tribes in order to foment division, to modern day Yugoslavia where the country was rejecting the IMF and world bank takeover before the Globalists broke it up and took the country piece by piece by arming and empowering extremists.

And so to Iraq, New York Times November 25th 2003, Leslie Gelb of the Council on Foreign Relations writes,

"To put most of its money and troops where they would do the most good quickly - with the Kurds and Shiites. The United States could extricate most of its forces from the so-called Sunni Triangle, north and west of Baghdad.... American officials could then wait for the troublesome and domineering Sunnis, without oil or oil revenues, to moderate their ambitions or suffer the consequences."

Gelb argues for allowing the rebellion to escalate in order to create a divided Iraq.

And in 1982, Oded Yinon, an official from the Israeli Foreign Affairs office, wrote: "To dissolve Iraq is even more important for us than dissolving Syria. In the short term, it's Iraqi power that constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. The Iran-Iraq war tore Iraq apart and provoked its downfall. All manner of inter-Arab conflict help us and accelerate our goal of breaking up Iraq into small, diverse pieces."

So if the plan is to keep the different sects at each others' throats then who benefits from the chaos created by the endless bombings? President Bush's slip of the tongue when he stated, "it'll take time to restore chaos and order -- order out of chaos, but we will" seems less farcical in this light.

Plans for 4,000 NATO troops to replace US troops in Afghanistan will likely be mirrored in Iraq and the country will be used as a launch pad for the coming invasions of Syria and Iran.

It is certain that any reports coming out of Iraq accusing occupational forces of being behind car bombings will be brutally censored.

The Pentagon admitted before the war that independent journalists would be military targets and since then we've seen more journalists killed in Iraq over two and a half years than the entire seven year stretch of US involvement in Vietnam.

In many cases, such as that of Mazen Dana, an acclaimed hero who was killed after filming secret US mass graves, journalists are hunted down and executed because they record something that the occupational government doesn't want to reach the wider world.

Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena's car was fired upon and an Italian secret service agent killed after Sgrena was told by the group that kidnapped her that a threat to kill her if Italian troops didn't pull out of Iraq wasn't made by them. This means that Rumsfeld's Ministry of Truth in Iraq is putting out false statements by fake Jihad groups to try and maintain the facade that the resistance is run by brutal terrorists under the direction of Al-Qaeda/Iran/Syria or whoever else they want to bomb next.

Every high profile kidnapping brings with it eyewitness reports of white men in suits and police carrying out the abductions.

Many will find it hard to believe that ordinary soldiers would have it in them to carry out such brutal atrocities. The people carrying out these acts are not ordinary soldiers, they are SAS thugs who have been told that they have to be 'more evil than the terrorists' to defeat the terrorists. This is how they morally justify to themselves engaging in this criminal behavior.

We will update this story as and when new developments take place

War Protesters Seek to Put Heat on Bush

By JENNIFER C. KERR, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 36 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - Anti-war groups are using a $1 million ad campaign and a demonstration they say will attract 100,000 people to try to re-energize their movement and pressure the Bush administration to bring troops home from Iraq.

Organizers of Saturday's protest, which will take marchers past the White House, say it will be the largest since the war began more than two years ago.

Cindy Sheehan, the woman who drew thousands of protesters to her 26-day vigil outside President Bush's Texas ranch last month, is among those planning to participate.

"We want to show Congress, the president and the administration that this peace movement is thriving," said Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son, Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, was killed last year in Iraq. "We mean business and we're not going to go away until our troops come home."

On Thursday, Bush said withdrawing troops right now would make the world more dangerous.

"The only way the terrorists can win is if we lose our nerve and abandon the mission," he said. "For the safety and security of the American people, that's not going to happen on my watch."

Bush did not plan to be in Washington on Saturday, but he will have support on the streets. The groups and Protest Warrior plan their own demonstration on Saturday, with hundreds expected to join in.

"We made a vow after Sept. 11 that we would not allow the anti-American left to do to us this time what they did during Vietnam, which was wear down the morale of the American," FreeRepublic spokesman Kristinn Taylor said.

Taylor said a larger rally Sunday on the National Mall would honor military families.

The public has grown uneasy with the war throughout the summer, and the financial pressures of recovering from Hurricane Katrina, and possibly Rita, could add to that.

Almost two-thirds of those surveyed said they thought the U.S. was spending too much in Iraq, according to an AP-Ipsos poll taken after Katrina. About the same number of respondents said they were not confident how the money would be spent. Almost six in 10 said the U.S. made a mistake in invading Iraq, but less than half wanted to withdraw all forces immediately.

The anti-war effort gained notice last month with Sheehan's protest in Crawford, Texas. But the devastation caused by Katrina, and the government's slow response, have dominated the news the past several weeks.

Still, Brian Becker, national coordinator for ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), says people have not forgotten about the war.

"People are very angry at the Bush administration," Becker said.

The anti-war groups began an advertising campaign Thursday, sponsored by the Win Without War coalition, with an advertisement in The Washington Post and other newspapers. The left side of the double-page ad pictures Bush and administration officials with quotes about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq under the headline "They lied." The right side lists the names of American military personnel killed in Iraq with the headline "They died."

A television spot, sponsored by Gold Star Families for Peace, is running on Fox News Channel and local cable TV. The TV ad features Cindy Sheehan and other relatives of soldiers killed in Iraq.

Police are prepared for a large demonstration, said Sgt. Scott Fear of the U.S. Park Police.

Days off have been canceled for officers. Reinforcements are coming from New York. Fear said the full force would be on hand, but he would not provide the number of officers.

Police do not anticipate any trouble on Saturday, he said.

"We meet with these organizers over and over again," said Fear. "We don't expect problems. We expect it to be a peaceful demonstration."

The war protests will coincide with planned demonstrations against the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, which hold their annual meetings this weekend. Anti-globalization protesters will eventually join the marchers opposing the Iraq war.

ANSWER and United for Peace and Justice are the main anti-war organizers. The protest will start with a rally at the Ellipse with speakers including Sheehan, actress Jessica Lange and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Protesters will march to the front of the White House down to the Justice Department and then circle back to the Washington Monument for a concert featuring folk singer Joan Baez.

Other protests are planned Saturday in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle.

It's so sad when celebrities fight...

...but hey, at least it makes the Press Corpse pay attention.

(For a second.)

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger speaks during a meeting with Mexican Undersecretary for North American Affairs, Geronimo Gutierrez in his office in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2005. Later in the day the Governor held private interviews with various news organizations including the Associated Press. In that interview Schwarzenegger discussed a wide range of matters pertaining to the special election and his own decision to pursue a second term next year. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)

AP Interview: Schwarzenegger Admits Errors

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer Wed Sep 21, 6:22 AM ET

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said he is confident he can persuade voters to approve his reform measures in next month's special election and dismissed as "silly" the criticisms leveled at him in recent months by actor Warren Beatty.

In an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press, Schwarzenegger discussed a wide range of matters pertaining to the Nov. 8 election and his own decision to pursue a second term next year.

The Republican governor is pushing several ballot initiatives that would curb the power of the Democrat-controlled Legislature and the state's powerful public employee unions.

He wants voters to establish a state spending cap, extend the time it takes for public school teachers to be eligible for tenure, require public employee unions to seek permission from their members before using dues money for political purposes, and strip lawmakers of their power to draw the lines of their own districts.

Schwarzenegger insisted his agenda is not intended as a political vendetta against the Democrats with whom he has clashed all year. He acknowledged that in pursuing the reforms, he was "stepping on people's toes" from time to time — but said his goal had always been to reach a bipartisan agreement that would have avoided a contentious campaign.

"It's all about collaboration. My whole life was all about collaboration. But there are certain things, as you know, when you talk about those reforms, they can't go there," he said.

Schwarzenegger also said he was perplexed by Beatty, a fellow actor and Democrat who has become an outspoken antagonist.

"There are some people who are close to him that say that he is just starving for attention and that's the way he gets attention. Other people said, look he's not working and he just feels like he should maybe get involved in politics," Schwarzenegger said. "Instead, I just think that maybe he is jealous that I did jump in. I find it silly, because I respect his work."

The governor said his wife, Maria Shriver, and his four children, ages 7 to 15, support his decision to run again, despite Shriver's often very public pleas to have her husband back at home.

"My wife will support anything I do, because she's that kind of a woman," he said. "She would rather have me at home, she'd rather have me in the movie business and she'd rather have me write books about all my ideas."

Schwarzenegger also said he erred with his comments at the state women's conference last December, when a group of nurses protested his plans to block a new law changing the state's nurse-patient staffing ratio. Schwarzenegger responded to the protest, saying, "Special interests don't like me in Sacramento because I'm always kicking their butts."

That comment, and his continued effort to block enforcement of the new ratios, have provoked angry demonstrations by nurses around the state.

"Was it the right thing to say? No. Are there certain lines that I have used in the past that are on 'Saturday Night Live?' Yes," Schwarzenegger said. "But this is part of the learning experience."

Plan BK: The Solutions - Movie Nite!

"The revolution will not rip the X-Box out of your hands."

- Black Krishna


Ah the talkies: now in glorious color!

Hollywould you believe in magic?


The rest of the time?


It's crap.


I just heard the late-nite lament on a passing escalator: "That movie sucked!"

Sad that.

Too bad for the money and time wasted, a nite of fun turned into a nite of none.

However, what of the movies paid for by bandwidth-holders? Citizen KanYe's? Those with the cojones to attach their name to their ISP and a plethora of political perfidy pimp'd plenty passionately? Those not resorting to a flashy nom de plume in the hopes of seducing souljahs selling sacrilege? (Guilty as charge d'affaired! :)

90% of the time, in my humble experience, they're solid as sold.

It's really that simple: trust ye in ye fellow man and womyn? Or trust ye in ye fellowship Blockbuster? The Lord of "The Ring" beckons, but so does the day of the reckons...

Just like 90% of the time when surfing the English Channels of the blue-lit sea of mediocritterdom on ye olde telly, and stumbling on ye olde earth-shaking world-making head-faking intelligent lifeforming free willingness to speak truth to power, the sheer boxers-full-of-boulders stun while cockily applying caulking to the cracks in reality that let the darkness leak into life, leaving us louder.

To wit: "Dude! You won't believe what I saw on TV last nite!"

Verily the madness of extraordinary exhortations from the ex-girlfriend of extra-time, she be TV: just bad enough for you to leave you drained, but just comfortable enough to never leave. So rare to dare, so rare to care, but upon seeing the rare, one can't help but stare...

And that's really it: across the social spectrum, some socio-political shiznit just blows you away. An army of one earth-shattering episode, a quotable quote, you're King of the Castle's own moat, a memorable Murder She Wrote.

But far be it from me to be the Manchurian Candidate elected to sellfishly sell it. Sales-pitches need not be graded on a curve: see your game of TV-ball to see which Sitting Balls you hit out of the park, and which ones whizzed by to be waffle-ball'd at...

Fahrenheit 9/11? An easy mark, a shot in the dark, a stroll in the park.

Lies you say? Then say them I say. I've heard not a word from a bark or a bird, only promises of ones overheard. Life's a bitch when we twist a sitch, and nothing from that snitch Chris Hitch made me twitch.

Spy Game? Brad and Rob were game, the CIA saw no shame, the fame they claimed was aimed at the maimed, and thus a good movie was maintained.

But back to the fact: the doc's back, and while Dre makes sure Detox don't lack, we can all certainly clean up our act.

A night a week, two nights strong, what's an hour or two, when the buzz lasts long...

The full-court Press Corpse is on, with blow-dried zombies 'til dawn; and they all know the vibe they're on, so press on, and become the zombies they spawn...

Each week the truth-seeker gets weaker, especially when they dare wear a blank-stare with a loud-speaker. Speak and ye shall be heard, whether ye speak in the third or be spittin' up turds...

The love of truth is the love of youth, as we get older we forget to reboot, the jackboot shoot and we claim it's the loot, but the cash collected leaves any point moot...


Mayhap one nite a week to seek unique, you're only a freak if you're too weak to seek; and perhaps the earth shall gift the meek, but then the gift of earth may slap the other cheek...

The sites to check to raise some heck, protect ya neck, and ya paycheck...

Meanwhile, in New Orleans... (Get a hit of O'raq!)

"It's over Johnny,
It's over.
Blackwater in a Rover,
Black water runnin' over,
Black water-bottle-throttle-
A Nazi make-over,
A Nazi take-over,
A Nazi regime-team-dream-
No fakin' soldier,
GOParamilitary, scary,
One-party, Hail Mary,
God-squad, Jesus-jackin' for eats,
Barely live to die,
Can't bear to ask why,
'Til they finally comin' for my...
Stop: think they gonna stop?
Think they gonna cop a plea?
"Oh mercy me?"
"We didn't know who the hell, we be?"
We didn't know Neo-Continuity?
An impossibility?
It's impossible to see?
Just by watchin' TV?
Now you're thinkin',
In a state of perma-blinkin',
Can't you all see,
They finally jackin' Lincoln?
Reconstruction of destruction,
Just seduction, a game,
Money comin' funny,
But still: no one to blame?
Thought you saw the shame?
On TV?
Just, see the-
Finger-pointing, then anointing,
New heroes set you free!
New heroes set to be,
In for a fight:
The long-knives are comin' out tonite..."

"Come along, follow me, as I lead through the darkness,

Come with me, and I won't steer you wrong,
Put your faith in your trust, as I guide us through the fog,
To the light, at the end, of the tunnel we gon’ fight,
We gon’ charge, we gon’ stomp,
We gon’ march through the swamp,
We gon’ mosh through the marsh,
Take us right through the doors,
Come on..."
