Libya war, poem by Attila the Stockbroker


This video from Britain is called Attila The Stockbroker: ‘The Bible According To Rupert Murdoch.’

This is a poem by Attila the Stockbroker from England on the Libyan war:

MISSION CREEP

I usually cheer at the word ‘revolution
And rebels in action are my kith and kin
But when they are backed by the whole New World Order
That kind of description soon wears pretty thin
Royalists, Islamists, old regime turncoats
Internal divisions already exposed
The flag that they wave is the flag of King Idris
The sad Western toady Gaddafi deposed

No revolution is fronted by NATO
Endorsed by BP, Halliburton and Shell
Businessmen vying to cash in on carnage
Arms dealers profiting, trading in hell

They’ve not much in common with Chavez or Castro
They’re not like the rebels I’ve cheered on before
Racialist pogroms, massacred prisoners
I think of the Rebs in the Yank Civil War
Royalty smiles as the old scores are settled
West and Islam in a cynical tryst
Upstart from the desert gets bombed to oblivion
Syrian dynasty slapped on the wrist

No revolution is fronted by NATO
Endorsed by BP, Halliburton and Shell
Businessmen vying to cash in on carnage
Arms dealers profiting, trading in hell

And it’s not just the Right who support NATO’s actions
‘Protecting civilians’ – a sick, evil lie
As Sirte is dismantled with bomb and with bullet
Liberals are silent and innocents die
Selective coverage in all the media
One side are heroes, the other side scum
Legitimate targets for air strikes and war crimes –
And now they’ve been butchered the vultures will come

No revolution is fronted by NATO
Endorsed by BP, Halliburton and Shell
Businessmen vying to cash in on carnage
Arms dealers profiting, trading in hell….

This is not mission creep, it’s mission control
Another excuse for an oil hungry war
Taxpayers shellng out over a billion
To take out the weapons sold not long before
Bailouts for the bankers, blank cheques for the arms dealers
Poor and the sick and the vulnerable pay
Cameron likes rebels – when they’re in Libya
I’m with the rebels here in the UK!

No revolution is fronted by NATO
Endorsed by BP, Halliburton and Shell
Businessmen vying to cash in on carnage
Arms dealers profiting, trading in hell

And the flag of Al Qaeda flies over Benghazi
Foundation of justice is Sharia law
For women, the spectre of veil and polygamy –
Is that what those thousands of airstrikes were for?
