Kurds Away? - Poem by Saiom Shriver

The US ally Turkey has
for many decades allowed US airbases.

The Turks are bombing Kurds in the north
of Syria as they have bombed Kurds in Iraq
and on their own borders. These Kurds the CIA (in rogue
agency fashion?) is supplying
with weapons and money.

A tinder box.

What happens if Kurds are blown away
as casually as if they were curds and whey.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A mere 6 weeks after he promised 'no boots
on the ground' in Syria, Obama, once again
the pawn of imperialist capitalist financial
interests and the agenda of Netanyahu,
has sent 50 special forces into Syria.

France, the US, Russia and Turkey
are all bombing the people of Syria.
All have different objectives.

WBUR's program The Takeaway gave
airtime this morning to Paul Wolfowitz,
a major neocon architect of the disastrous
war in Iraq.

Many miracles are needed.

A rare media discussion Tom Ashbrook of WBUR asks the audience... should more be done or less be done... or should the US withdraw
