Afghanistan War Over 4 Times Longer than Civil War

Folder: 
Peace

*

There is no exit strategy for

the Afghanistan War.

Why? Because religious haters,

loanshark capitalists and war profiteers

want endless war.

 

This almost 17 year war

is more than 4 times as long

as the Civil War.

CIA Running Amuck

The CIA is waging an

illegal unconstitutional

and secret war against

Pakistan.

It is a rogue agency

run amuck

turning the forests of

other countries

into slimy muck.

The lower the rank
the more the officers
care about their men
than a warmongering mission.
Choosing soldier lives over
criminally stupid and
dangerous orders is
for real officers
a soulsaving decision.
*
This theme is explored
magnificently in the book
In The Name Of Honor by
Richard North Patterson as
he outlines the criminal
disregard of life by generals
in Iraq. Among many other
events he details soldiers
warned about an ambush
still being ordered by a career
oriented superior to
go to protect a Sunni police
station full of freedom fighters
who oppose the invasion...
every rooftop has Shiite

machine gun holding snipers..
many teen boys have
explosive devices in soda
cans... narrow alleys
are easily roadblocked.

 

(Footnote: It is not the

superrich who for their

fellow war profiteers send their

sons into harm's way)

Worlds Apart

Folder: 
War

You talk of Benidorm,
Of Aiya napa.
Sangria
Sun and sex.
Your bottled tan,
Your Geordie shore.

Afghanistan
And Lashkar gah .
Of puri tabs
And tepid water.
IEDs,
And senseless slaughter.

HOME

The engine roars on the C17
Bringing home another soldier
He was just 18
Liveth on for evermore
He died a Hero in a far away War
Family sob with anguish and grief
Forever in their hearts a place they keep
A son and brother who joined the ranks
Swapped action men for real bullets and tanks
Please don’t cry for me today
For I died a soldier my chosen way

`A SOLDIERS WAR`

Time to enter the green zone boys
I will not let you down
Not fighting here for Queen & Country
Or the folks from my home town
My soldier brothers are my family now
We fight for our Battalion
Patrolling into the enemy ground
With hearts as strong as stallions
`Crack Thump`
A round goes overhead
The Taliban know we are here
My corporals  shouts and quick commands
Dispels my any fears
Section attack with bayonets fixed
We advance towards the enemy
Our rifles fire a wall of lead
As does my trusty Minimi
`Cease Fire` is called
We wait and watch
Then carry on once more
Towards the enemy
We will not stop
This is a soldiers War.
