Treasure Island

O Anna Niemus


Highway Of Death


White flagged surrendering Iraqi soldiers, Kuwaiti refugees, dogs,
donkeys pulling carts had their waving petitions for mercy ignored
as Bush, Colin Powell, Barrie McCaffrey and Norman Schwarzkopf
carpet bombed them, bulldozing them alive into graves.

*********


After George H W Bush sent April Glaspie to tell Saddam Hussein
that if he tried to regain Kuwait, once part of Iraq, the US regime
would not interfere, Hussein made the fatal error of believing
the former head of the CIA.

When Bush, the arranger of Iran Contra, the
man who had kept American POW's in jail for 6 additional months
as he negotiated with Iran to give them arms in return for their
holding hostages longer (an act of treason on private citizen at that time
Bush's part) began bombing Baghdad and other areas, the Highway
of Death occurred.

Even the conservative Rutherford Organization which has attempted
to criminalize the private sex lives of public officials... described
the Highway of Death.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
