Hey, I got your back...
"I Got Your Back"

I am a small and precious child, my dad's been sent to fight.
The only place I'll see his face, is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days for my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad, but I am proud.
My daddy's got your back.

I am a caring mother. My son has gone to war.
My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before.
Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning black.
I may be scared, but I am proud.
My son has got your back.

I am a strong and loving wife, with a husband soon to go.
There are times I'm terrified in a way MOST NEVER KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bite my lip, and force a smile as I watch my husband pack.
My heart may break, but I am proud.
My husband's got your back.

I am a soldier .Serving Proudly, standing tall.
I fight for freedom, yours and mine by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing, THE THANKS IT SOMETIMES LACKS.
Say a prayer that I'll come home.
It's me whose got your back.

BARF! (english)

I can only assume Boston IMC is being hacked by the VFW tonight All of this bullshit about flags and goodbyes and POWs and apple pie and patriotism cause me to want to puke.

The United States of America has inflicted more pain and loss on more people (including those of Vietnam) than any other nation on earth in the last 50 years.

Now, more men, women and children must die in another corner--Iraq--to defend global capitalism and steal her oil reserves.

Cpl John C. Buckley, the bad-ass Army Ranger, elected to join the Army and volunteer to become a Ranger.

The children of Baghdad that will die in a firestorm of 800 Cruise missiles in 48 hours are unable to make a similar choice.

Buckley, I wish you well in your career and hope that you, personally, escape unscathed, wherever you are--whatever you are doing or will be asked to do.

But I wish as much for the people of Baghdad--especially the little children. You Americans don't have a corner on emotion--on love of family and country, and life, you know. You are so myopic, selfish and self-centered that you cause me nausea.

Hack IMC, destroy Iraq, hate Islamic people, eat french fries and be greedy, fat-assed Americans until the cows come home and you will still be wrong. You do not have a corner on virtue.

The laws of the Cosmos will not be mocked forever by this selfish, greedy, consuming and defiling nation.

The Iraqi children in the accompanying picture will probably make a greater sacrifice in the next months than will any of you braying jackasses.
