The Lyrics

I took part in the Gathering of Eagles, the counter-demonstation to the 3/17 anti-war demonstration organized by ANSWER, etc. The GOE was organized because a some earlier anti-war demonstrators weren't above vandalism. "Constitution" is an avenue in Washington DC.
You say you'll have a demonstration
Well, you know
You all have your right to speak
You gather here on this occasion
Well, you know
You can tell us what you seek
But if you try some desecration
Don't you know you'll have to get past me
Don't you know that wouldn't be
All right, all right, all right

Cut and running's your solution
Run away
Like we did in Vietnam
(Shooby-doo-wah, oh shooby-doo-wah)
You say we caused Iraq's confusion
And you say
We were wrong about Saddam
(Shooby-doo-wah, oh shooby-doo-wah)
But you never said anything when Saddam attacked
You would have let him make Kuwait part of Iraq
Don't you know that wouldn't be
All right, all right, all right
Ah....

ah, ah, ah, ah, ah....
[electric piano solo]

You say you'll march down Constitution
You should know
Those are Eagles watching you
(Shooby-doo-wah, oh shooby-doo-wah)
You say dissent's an institution
You should know
We have the right to be there, too
(Shooby-doo-wah, oh shooby-doo-wah)
But if you go wearing those T-shirts of Commie Che
All I can tell you is brother, just stay away
Don't you know that wouldn't be
All right, all right, allright,
All right, all right, all right,
All right, all right

Using a John Lennon song to justify a stupid, greedy war. I'd have to rewrite a hundred Lee Greenwood songs to match that desecration. As for the Navy Memorial, there was no desecration. Michelle Malkin made that up for her lying, hysterical column. I'll retract that if you show me a picture or a video clip, but you don't have one. We didn't run away in Vietnam, we limped away after your boy Tricky Dick promised to end the war and then took four years to do it, and his way still led to a unified Communist nation that Republicans now have no trouble doing business with, you hypocrites. Don't you dare use Gulf War I as a justification for Gulf War II, because Bush I was smart enough to NOT go to Baghdad, while Bush II was not. Che Guevara? About as dumb as you guys are, and as unwilling to temper his fanaticism with practicality, or else he'd still be alive. Eagles? More like Dodos, and your numbers are decreasing as theirs did. Or maybe I should call you Pigeons, the avian equivalent of rats. The war is lost, and Bush lost it, and he's the only one who doesn't know it. Time to take our troops out of Iraq and send them where they'll do some actual good. By the way, where is Osama bin Laden?

Whatever. Everyone will eventually give up & things will be stable. As for where bin Laden is, you might try reading www.amiright.com/parody/80s/dschinghiskhan2.shtml as to where I think bin Laden may be.

Steve, you are to be commended for being one of 30,000 Eagles and for writing a strong parody. And “Che Guevara-idolizing peace demonstrator” is nothing but an oxymoron. The impact of Ernesto Che Guevara on the 20th century is slightly less repugnant that the impact of Adolph Hitler. He presided over the Cuban Revolution's first firing squads and founded Cuba's "labor camp" system"the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims. He was killed in Bolivia in 1967, leading a guerrilla movement that failed to enlist a single Bolivian peasant. Unfortunately, he succeeded in inspiring tens of thousands of middle class Latin-Americans to exit the universities and organize guerrilla insurgencies of their own. And these insurgencies likewise accomplished nothing, except to bring about the death of hundreds of thousands, and to set back the cause of Latin-American democracy.
