    "War...What is it good for? Absolutely nothing."
    ~E. Starr~

    Embraced by the universial call for peace
    The question is asked
    The question is answered
    But I'm compeled to differ
    There is something else I see
    Greed
    That is what war is good for
    Forutnes will be made
    On pain, death, and misery

    War
    The industry of death
    Every 30-40 years or so
    Big business booms
    From hi-tech weapons
    To body bags and uniforms
    Made in the USA
    American factories
    That's just the way it is
    An economic reality

    Yes
    War is good for something
    And it's a **** shame

    to me..war is senseless, as are all acts of violence...
    borne from greed, intolerance, hatred or difference of opinion...
    but as is always the case....the one who suffers most is the "innocent"...
