The USA Should Invade The USA
Paul Myers tweet
'The USA should
invade the USA
and win the
hearts and minds
of the population
locals to work.'
Winning hearts and minds
was favoured military slogan
in US war worn Vietnam
strangely gift airmailed bombs
napalm agent orange campaign
did not win local hearts minds
surviving flesh burnt bodies
did not appreciate high tech death
rained down upon them from skies.
Alas rebuilding roads bridges
televised blown apart in missions
spectacular invasion Iraq was
never high on western oil agenda
oops silly Tony Blair spilt beans
'Reconstruction left Iraq no
electricity no clean water why? '
'NATO the military intentionally
targeted Iraq's water system.'
'Why was providing
essential water electricity
to Iraqi's not important?
To quote Blair
'they might have blown
up oil production'.
inhumane ad hoc solutions
'I think' were unprofessional.'
'Everybody complains about
bad water in Baghdad except
Mubarak's friend Tony Blair.
Few are willing to risk life drinking
water from contaminated tap in Tony Blair's
'we have reconstruction about right'.
Cholera diarrhea but what helps prevent
dysentery infection, not an evil Tony Blair;
anti-diarrhoeal medications, clean water does.'
'drinking water in Baghdad is diseased
infant children suffer continuous illnesses
adults suffer nausea constant diarrhea
someone should do something about
bad dirty water which brings disease
but Blair does not care if Iraqi poor get
sick die, Blair in Swiss 2011 interview said
'we have reconstruction about right'
'they might have blown up oil production''
Yes win hearts minds build bridges
put locals to work in all countries
but resist new world order policy
a global exploitation net conspiracy
'empire' ultra elite national driven
by big bonus international banking
super-corporations list prey countries
harvesting in new age 'empire' plans
anti-capitalism greed anti-globalization
greed pleading have a heart feed clothe
the poor instead of creating new wars
medicate the sick stop inflicting injuries
to amass fortunes at expense miseries
