How Can America Win An Illegal War?

America cannot and is not and will not win
but the hype goes on and on and on
from the top: “We have to win in Iraq
so the terrorists won’t see US as weak.”
and, “more US troops have to die so the ones already dead
will not have died in vain.” – sound familiar?

Army Lt. Ehren Watada refused to return to Iraq because
“As the order to take part in an illegal act is ultimately unlawful,
I must as an officer of honor and integrity refuse that order.”

Back in the good old days America could admit mistakes,
even changing the constitution to correct those mistakes,
now Bush would tell us some mistakes were made but
instead of correcting them we will “stay the course.”

The warhawks need Americans to believe
our all volunteer army chose to be where they are…
They did not choose a lying administration
and when polled a Large majority would leave
if they could but they do not have Watada courage
…kinda like America’s congressmen and women
have not the courage to condemn Bush & Cheney,
congress people who think to hold onto their seat
of power…this time the question is not
“Who will be the last soldier to die” while politicians dicker
the question is “How many Watadas need to step up
before Bush and Cheney step down?’
Answer: Not so many if Americans by the numbers
walked into their own state congress persons offices and demanded
“Stop this illegal war now!”
