The Lyrics

As I was thinking this week about all of these people we call casualties, I came up with the idea of changing the lyrics of "Biko" to make a song about war casualties. I still think that the song could be improved, particularly the phrase "Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000" because that is just the officially recognized casualties of US soldiers who died in Iraq and does not include the Iraqi civilians, Afghan civilians and the US soldiers who died in Afghanistan. You can submit comments to me at http://www.elvis4peace.blogspot.com/
When you ask around this town,
you may hear them say life is fine
Seems like business as usual
but I see war's death toll climb.
Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000
Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000
Can you see them?, Can you see them?
Too many dead, Too many dead.

Sometimes awake in bed at night
I can only think of them.
The widows and orphans
of Iraqi and US dead.
Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000
Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000
Can you see them?, Can you see them?
Too many dead, Too many dead.

Katrina came and others will come
and so how do we prepare?
Our troops in Iraq would help us
if they ever come home from there.
Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000
Past 2000, oh no, Past 2000
Can you see them?, Can you see them?
Too many dead, Too many dead. And the eyes of the world are watching now, watching now.

"World Peace" - October 31, 2005 - Report this comment
"World Peace" is shot to hell? Well, good! Your damned UN's damnable plans for worldwide socialism would be the death of liberty everywhere. Of course, among those "2000" are about 400 guys who happened to die of mundane things like car crashes while they were in Iraq, but that doesn't make any difference to you, does it, traitor? Just remember, traitor: when Sudan or Cuba or China owns your server, they'll own your ass, too. You'll be allowed to say anything you like... once.

Don't listen to him, "Elvis." If George Washington knew the commenter above, he'd treat him like a cherry tree. If Abe Lincoln knew him, he'd split him like a rail. If Franklin Roosevelt knew him, he'd say, "The only thing we have to fear is... your breath!" And if John F. Kennedy knew him, he'd say, "Ask not what this guy can do for you, 'cause he won't do a damn thing for you!" It is true that world peace is shot to hell, but we'd get it back a lot sooner if we had a President who understood that protecting this country is a hell of a lot more important than protecting his own privilege and his cronies' financial interests. I would have accepted 2000 American deaths if it brought one Saudi death, and, by the way, where is Osama bin Laden? You remember, the guy who actually DID the 9/11 crime, unlike Saddam? Sudan's on Osama's side, China's got enough problems without taking us on, and Cuba's a nonentity now. The only reason we have to fight in Iraq now is because Bush removed the one guy who was keeping al-Qaeda out. Anything to claim "Mission Accomplished," right? At any rate, "Elvis," YOU have accomplished your mission here. Fives all the way.

Don't listen to him, "Elvis." If George Washington knew the commenter above, he'd shoot him for a deserter. If Abe Lincoln knew him, he'd hang him for a traitor. If Franklin Roosevelt knew him, he'd send him to the chair for crimes against humanity. If John F. Kennedy knew him, he'd be too busy screwing with his hundreds of mistresses to care. It is true that world socialism and the European "Constitution" are all shot to hell, and they'll stay that way for so long as we have a President who understands that protecting this country is a lot more important than protecting the interests of genocidal islamofascists and commie holdouts. For fewer than 1600 actual combat deaths, we've killed Saudis, Syrians, Jordanians, and any terrorist scum capable of slithering into Iraq from any of a dozen Islamofascist nations and by the way, Pakistan believes that Osama bin Laden is dead and has been for months. You remember, the guy conclusively proven to be Saddam's bosom buddy, and whom Saddam funded and supplied? Sudan's on the Security Council, China's still pushing the UN to take over our internet, and Cuba's still the idiot leftist's idea of paradise. The only reason we have to fight in Iraq now is that George H.W. Bush listened to idiot leftists and didn't finish the war and Clinton kept his own plan to invade Iraq on the back burner while trying in vain to raise everyone's taxes and distract people from Lewinsky. A leftist would claim anything, however blatantly absurd and false, just to bash Bush, right? At any rate, "Elvis," YOU are nothing but one more petty moron who doesn't realize that "world peace" is a fool's errand because it can never be achieved by any amount of human effort. Ones all the way.

Wow. This guy knows less about early American history than he does about current world events. We don't have a President who understands anything. Pakistan believes bin Laden is dead? That must be why they aren't lifting a finger to find him -- just like Bush. He was NOT Saddam's buddy. He HATED Saddam as a secular ruler who used Islam for his own ends. (So does bin Laden, but that's a topic for another time.) Saddam never supplied al-Qaeda, and if you think he did, then stop reading Newsmax and listening to Limbaugh and Hannity. Bush Sr. didn't go into Iraq because he knew that what has happened now would have happened then. He was the George Bush with a brain. (Not a very good one, but at least had one.) Clinton didn't raise everyone's taxes, only the rich. Because he did so, the budget was balanced and wages went up, providing the same effect as a real a tax cut for everybody. One more thing, "Keloh": Why don't you use your imagination to come up with an argument based in reality, and a better screen name too? Because you're doing nothing to help your cause. Then again, why change now?

Wow. This guy knows less about early American history than he does about current world events. We have a President who understands more than any leftist in the world. Pakistan believes bin Laden is dead. That must be why leftists still pretend Bin Laden is alive and broadcasting-- just like Zawahiri. He was TIGHT pals with Saddam. He LOVED Saddam as a genocidal ruler who practiced Islam in his own way. (So did Zawahiri, but that's a topic for another time.) Saddam always supplied al-Qaeda an every other terrorist band he could find, and if you don't think he did, then stop reading Daily Kos and listening to Dowd and Friedman. Bush Sr. didn't go into Iraq because he knew that the traitors dissing his son now would be dissing him then. He was the George Bush with less spine. (Pacholek hated him anyway, because he hates all Republicans and all free people everywhere.) Clinton tried to raise everyone's taxes, but Republicans stopped him. Mostly. Because they stopped him, the budget almost balanced. Real wages stayed flat, appearing to go up only because of a massive inflation that ultimately caused a recession for everybody that lasted into 2001 and the post-9/11 slump. One more thing, "Michael": Why don't you use your imagination to come up with an argument based in reality, and a better set of friends too? Because you're doing nothing to help your cause. Then again, why change now?

Tell them you need better talking points - not only are you not original and lack any of your own thoughts, but the American people are now catching on to the fact that the ultra right-wing fascist evangelical extreme edge of the GOP has been lying to the American people - Bush, Cheeney, Rove, Libby - politics as usual coming from the folks who brought you Nixon and Reagan.

Whoever's hiding behind my only begotten son's name and invoking it for ungodly leftist causes should know that I own the ruler, and can turn his heart any direction I please. He should also know that I told Christians to obey the reigning authorities, and that these are established to do my servants good, and to execute my wrath against sinners.

Let's be honest you stupid moron, Osama was responsible for 9/11 - NOT HUSSEIN. Bin Laden carries a cell phone and we can't find him in more than four years?????

Admit it, you damned moron, Hussein's been tight with Bin Laden since the 1990s and had 17 chemical warheads and 500 tons of yellow-cake uranium. We haven't heard from Osama for a year because he's pushing up the petunias. You need Osama alive to go on bitching and moaning about him for your traitor ANSWER friends, but he's dead. After all, isn't your commie pal Ramsey Clark trying to free Saddam?
