Two and three tours in Iraq, in a war that is

three years old--Insanity!

 

This is how George Bush supports the troops.

 

This is why Dick Cheney had 5 deferments to

stay out of the war in Vietnam, because there

was more money to be made in War Business.

 

"I had other priorities."

 

Don't trust a War Vet who isn't angry.

Day after day, the war in Vietnam

got worse and worse.

 

Day after day, the war in Iraq

is getting worse and worse.

 

There is a time when soldiers

begin to figure out the war is a lie.

 

They begin to deteriorate inside,

because their task has no meaning.

 

It is at this point, that soldiers begin

to feel prisoners of betrayal.

 

They feel used and tossed away,

like a paper cup after a movie.

 

Betrayal is always the real enemy.

Always.

 

I did not serve in Vietnam for the

cause of freedom.

I served in Vietnam for the cause

of profit.

 

I was as  [ send green star]

I was as expendable as an empty

cartridge.

Wasted by the corporate rich.

 

Over and over again, the same

recipe of deceit is passed on to

the next generation.

 

Patriotism is a disguise for glory.

 

The only glory in war, is in the

imagination of those who were

never there.

 

Soldiers In Pill Bottles live in a world

of silence, because the truth has nothing

to do with serving their country.

 

Lying is the most powerful weapon in war.

 

I began to heal, and nurture myself, when

I began to bear witness about the lies.

 

It is always the truth about the lies that

has to be revealed to the outside world.

The survivor absolutely has to speak,

because if he does not, history will

repeat itself.

 

Bring The Troops Home Now,

Before There Is Only Remains.
