War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses

Just like witches at black masses

Evil minds that plot destruction

Sorcerers of death's construction

In the fields the bodies burning

As the war machine keeps turning

Death and hatred to mankind

Poisoning their brainwashed minds

Oh, Lord, yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away

They only started the war

Why should they go out to fight?

They leave that role to the poor, yeah!


Time will tell on their power minds

Making war just for fun

Treating people just like pawns in chess

Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah!

The munitions producers need their profit.

I highly recommend purchasing or buying the download from amazon prime:

https://www.amazon.com/Why-We-Fight-Wilton-Sekzer/dp/B000FBH3W2/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=why+we+fight&qid=1550592817&refinements=p_n_format_browse-bin%3A2650304011&rnid=2941120011&s=movies-tv&sr=1-1

When our boys come home in body bags, we drape the coffin with a flag and send them off with a 21 gun salute! Quietly, the munitions and arms makers are CHEERING! I've been reading a bit lately about the subject of "dog tags". Seems the term came from "dogs of war". Soldiers are nothing more than politician's dogs.........kept on a short leash, BTW, because soldiers answer to their masters, the POLITICIANS!!!

Think about this for a moment. A grade AAA A** H*le sitting behind a desk orders your father, son or brother to go catch bullets so that arms makers can sell the U.S. government MORE MUNITIONS?????

As long as they continue to sell the idea that "He died for his country" rather than "He died for the ammunitions makers", this boat will continue to sail.......

I worked for aerojet here in tn. ran cnc lathes to turn d.u. and tungsten bullets.
Tungsten was for radar missile machine gun. D.U. would go thru tank armor,burning up crew inside. Fun to turn shower of sparks.

before I went to work there,I had 40 hours, of nuclear materials training.
I laugh when I see tree huggers, complain about our depleted uranium rounds.
A ash tray with 5 cigs, of ashes has more radioactivity, than a D.U. round.

You machined depleted uranium? Any chance the source of some health issues today? Did they give employees self monitoring equipment? Or material monitoring equipment? Harmless substance? Tank crews became sick from the presence alone.. Still used?

You cannot write that material off as totally harmless. Up here in a town I lived in they actually dredged the harbor bottom for the Manhatten project to get material fast. Free fill was also supplied from the plant In the community of Port Hope, Ontario. That had to be eventually removed when we lived there.

The nuclear industry has been highly suspect of many things. There are 38 nuclear reactors of the 99 in America that really should be decommissioned. To me there is an inherent lack of responsibility in not doing so.

Same in Canada the basic industry self regulates unforunatly. Otherwise the messes like Hartfort would not exist in all probability. The plant that created all these issues started out here with people dipping brushes in radium and applying it to Watch hands. The poor souls wet the brushes with their saliva.

They treated the cancers for a long time before they stopped doing it. Even though they knew the cause the practice continued. In my opinion they really just do not care. Money was god as it remains today.

Essentially no restitution was paid to the citizens of Russia and Japan so far for what they lost. I never expect it will be. I suspect the same treatment will apply if a plant really goes up in north America.

What really ticks me off. If anyone reports issues in the industry they get their security clearances pulled and blacklisted in north America. Where in most countries you can be charged with negligence for not reporting them.

To trust what you are told by that industry in north America is questionable. It is cheaper to decommission those plants and replace them than to pay for the consequences. Unless there is no intent to pay for the consequences.

For years now I have thought that it would make jobs in high numbers to start very substantial programs like the mass implementation of solar electric panels on houses. Even at cost. all capable of feeding back into the power grid.

Since most production is automated enough today. It could be done inside north America. Perhaps the aspect of profit at too high a cost in reality to human survival on this planet. Has to be examined. Yet instead we hang desperately on to systems that no longer really have a place. Even though the alternatives are better. For the dollar it seems.

As for all the nuclear scientists and engineers that have been blacklisted by the industry. About a hundred of them. They are setting up a compensation fund for them now. If it has not already gone into effect. A good example is the guy that designed the nuclear reactors for the American navy. That they have been satisfied with over the years.

He pointed out some issues with the nuclear reactors that were being supplied for power generation. He was blacklisted years ago for it. I have wondered if that compensation fund will include a non disclosure clause as well.

GE put profit over safety. It cost him his career.

Uranium even in it's natural state presents health issues. It cannot really be totally depleted and still remain uranium I suspect. I am not a tree hugger incidentally.

Do you know who the lung scan is being done for? Or what it was related to.

I think you give the generals more credit than they deserve. It's the full colonels you have to watch.
