And so I say again and again!

The Beatles & Stones were the rage
Marched for peace sung on stage
Back from Nam to see how to change
Building a company seemed so strange

Prayed for Martin more then once
There was never going to be a free lunch
Lost my hero's gunned down in blazes
Lost my brain in woodstock hazes

Did we accomplish at the end of the day
The Doors and drugs blew minds away.
Lost our focus and our causes
People had to die to add some clauses

40 years later were still killing children
Our young men die trying to defend
A country that has seemed to lose it's goals
Democracy works slowly don't lose your soul

PEACE AND LOVE
Joe Michael

Thanks Gary
I strated on the main page, of when will we ever learn, as I have in my page on loss! I like you spent many years burrying my feelings in regard to all I saw. I was at some very bad surge and siege missions where we killed anything that moved. I never fired my weapon and was quietly transferred but I still did nothing to stop it then. I was quilt ridden for years including but limmited to the fact that I surrvivied but also that I didn't stop senseless killing. Now I can talk aboit it and realize that I can do more now with words and money then I could then in objecting. I write about a little beutiful child i adopted on the way home and befoe I could arrange to bring her home and raise her she died. My losses of 207 comoany mates and this little darling girl took twenty years to come back to the surface of my brain but I deal with it now and it MUST NOT HAPPEN AGAIN!

When I came back it was obvious that an ashamed country, some who thought we the soldiers must have lost our way and others that where so glad to be out of there that they didn't want to see. I joined in and hid my military service and didn't disclose what I saw. I did know that we were under supported . I did know that we couldn't have won.. Was winning the intention or was there an ecconomic war machine dedictaed to just keep producing weapenry that didn't work and wouldn't win. As a soldier, if I have to be in war, I don't want to be where an officer gave out drugs to enlisted men to get through the night. I want to be supported by my country. I don't want to be anywhere when I don't know why I there. Killing woman and children beacause some half backed 2nd lui takes his orders too seriously. I came that close to blowing that luitenents head of on that patrol. Good save us all. PEACE NOW. NO more death and mayhem in the name of democracy.

I understood why we went after Alcaida aftre 911 but why were in Iraq and Afganistan now that is is oobvious the war machine as owned by Dick Cheney like vulchers?
\What do we do Now?????/
