    Reading the paper and watching the news
    Here we go with still another ruse
    I am not amused, in fact I feel my civil liberties
    abused.

    Friendly fire, guns for hire, oops! We killed some
    of our own. Bumbling idiots led by a bigger idiot
    have no direction just chaos and fear
    Shooting blindly at anything that moves
    Friendly fire is an oxy-moron that they use
    So their conscience they can soothe

    Friendly fire, how in hell can it be friendly?
    Did you walk up to the person you killed
    and introduce yourself before blowing their
    head off? The rules of engagement have long
    been lost, at what cost?

    Friendly fire! I don't want to hear that, cause
    what I really hear is rat-a-tat-tat...of your
    AK or your Gat...Claiming kills for the sake of
    thrills and when head counts begin, you bury
    your friend and remove your bullet from his
    still warm body. More Gangster than John Gotti!

    Friendly fire...my hearts desire is that there is no
    more fire of any kind except the kind that lights
    reason in the wise man's mind.
    Until then I guess they keep covering your
    "Friendly Fire" behind!

    Ain't it ashame?:( I'm feeling you on this one Ms B. How do you tell love ones, we are sorry, your son/daughter were killed by friendly fire. I think it would be more dignified if they would simply call it an accidental shooting. As if calling it friendly fire will ease their love ones pain:(
    Its nice to see you back on the board. :)

    Madd Holiday Greetings :heart:

    in total agreement

    when you are the individual
    or the family in any
    "friendly" fire
    ain't nothing friendly

    death is the only
    non-negotiable thing on earth

    oxymoron no doubts

    loved the work

    any "revolution" has sacrifices

    it's the basis
