Step Follows Step! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

what is,
...has been,
.....will be again!

winter follows autumn,
...spring will return.

page upon page,
...step follows step,
..and still we dont know,

not to touch the fire!

    David Bowie said this best; 'putting out fire with gasoline'. This seems to be the American NATO military solution to every political problem and targeted enemy now days. After the stain heritage of napalm bombing civilians in South East Asia, especially in Vietnam, the military now happily drone attacks 20 to a 100 civilians, just to possibly hit one alleged terrorist.
    A legacy of the Iraq war pack of cards era. Enemies dehumanized as playing cards was a brilliant propaganda strategy. Take out the Jack of Clubs, Ace of Spades; your deal, a stacked deck; but never a fair deal. Vietnam was the end of the great war journalists who delivered truth to world audiences. Main stream media today seem to be little more than mouth pieces and puppets for military invasion agendas.
