At Fort Campbell, Kentucky

To Kill A Blackbird

At Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the Army sprayed tens of thousands of
blackbirds in the middle of winter with detergent so that they would freeze
to death. Ann Free, Schweitzer biographer, reported that as the heat
rose as mist from their dying bodies, so their souls to rose to God.

Our regime treats soldier children of the poor in the same way, sending
them to Afghanistan, to be blasted out of helicopters at night onto frozen
peaks with
stinger missiles supplied to the Taliban and Mujahideen by our CIA.

***
(We pray for the soldiers, the birds, and all of those who have frozen
to death or in other ways died or live in agony. God bless all beings,
including Tom Hanks and Aaron Sorkin who made the lying piece
of war propaganda known as 'Charlie Wilson's War'
