Douglas Macarthur - Poem by O Anna Niemus
General Douglas MacArthur as he left soldiers to die in the Bataan
death march while boating off to the safety of Australia said in stentorian
tones: 'I shall return.' He rolled tanks onto veterans seeking their own
benefits. He sacrificed untold numbers on the altar
of his ambition.
But his words of wisdom 'Do not involve the United States in a land
war in Asia' have been ignored by war profiteers who care not
how many young boys are sacrificed.
