Sea of Blood

β€œIt could be a bloody β€” it could be a very difficult August.”
- George W. Bush, thoughtless, selfish prick
Mourner

I am drowning
In the blood that surrounds me
Caused by all of the fears
Fears of life
Because of all that comes with it,
The piercing pain of the knife
That comes in one hit
I taste it now the blood I am covered in
The tears
Are rolling down my face
So thick and red
I am lost in this sea
Sea of BLOOD.
- Tears of Blood
Mourner

Almost exactly two years ago, I put together the following video, "Is It Worth It?" Sadly, nothing has changed in Iraq except the growing numbers of deaths and casualities ("In the period from Memorial Day 2006 through Saturday, 980 soldiers and Marines died in Iraq, compared to 807 deaths in the previous year."). Meanwhile, it's business as usual in Washington with Bush and Cheney still lying by telling people that our presence in Iraq is making life safer for us here in the U.S. And because of the cowardice of their fellow Republicans, the media and Democratic enablers, Bush and Cheney are allowed to continue their bloody war with no end in sight. Thanks to the noise machine, the American people, who overwhelmingly think we should get the hell out of Iraq, were convinced that de-funding the troops meant abandoning the troops. Truly sad.

So, Happy Memorial Day Weekend America! Enjoy those juicy hot dogs and bloody hamburgers...
