oil war


Pakistan female bomber


A female suicide bomber detonated her explosives-laden vest killing at least 43 people at an aid distribution center in north-western Pakistan on Saturday, while army helicopter gunships and artillery killed a similar number of Islamic militants in neighboring tribal regions near the Afghan border, officials said…
Rigging up an oil war
When oilrigs are running dry
Duffle bags aboard the plane
I hope it's not our last goodbye.
Speeding through the desert dust
With Fox embedded videophones..
And no one's here to rescue me
And nobody can carry me home

They promise Pax Americana
Needs no special sacrifice.
Everybody votes for them
And leaves them to their one device.
Once the world looked up to us
But now our crimes we perpetrate alone..
And no one's here to rescue me
And nobody can carry me home.

Declaration Victory
And optimism all around
Car bombs in the market place
And body pieces on the ground
Ordinary people turn to terror
As we chase them underground..

Never heard the warning shot
It ripped a hole across the bows
Never saw democracy
Nor anything that it allows
Once the children greeted us
And now inside our tanks
We die alone..
And no one's here to rescue me
And nobody can carry me home,

And no one's here to rescue me
And nobody can carry me home…
