All Who Drop Bombs On Syria Create Refugees - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Our media decry the problem
of Syrian refugees by the millions
but don't say that our government
in dropping bombs onto Syria by the billions
is creating refugees, making homeless
innocent children, soldiers, civilians.

Topic(s) of this poem: war


Poet's Notes about The Poem

In the many trillions of dollars spent
against the will of the people by the Bush,
Bush and Obama administrations in
waging illegal, immoral and unwise war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and many other war zones are 1/2 billion
dollars spent on an attempt to train Syrians
to fight Assad. The money spent by the US
government to help refugees is infinitesimal
compared to the trillions spent killing, maiming,
bombing, burning around the world.

Note: WBUR, part of the NPR network,
has continued through The Takeaway and
other shows to silence the peace movement
while giving air to generals with their
bellicose plans
