Brothers in Arms
Dire Straights

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Someday you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn to be
Brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell and
The moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We are fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

The US has not had a legit war since WWII. Remember the bogus Iraq War. Remember that we are currently trying to do the same shit again in Venezuela and Iran. Remember we drop a bomb every 12 minutes. Endlessly. Remember how our militarism is sodomizing our society economically.
True or not, that's not what Memorial Day honors.

Wrong place. Wrong time.

And the collateral damage doesn't matter, right? At least, that's what we try and tell ourselves.
War should be the last resort.

Sadly, that's often NOT the case...

If we would just leave those poor ISIS fighters alone, maybe they would evolve into peace loving people.

Ya think?

Me neither...
