Masters of War

I could write an exposition on the illegality of the looming Babylonian actions in Syria, but Eddie quoting Dylan is so much more elegant. After all, when has Uncle Sam cared about the legality of its actions. Better yet, why not let the Chileans, Afghans, El Salvadoreans, Nicaraguans, Haitians, Grenadians, Iraqis, Panamanians, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Koreans, Iranians, Puerto Ricans, Filipinos, Hawaiians, and every Arabian and African state on the map answer that question. For those of you whose mirror neurons still function, peace and solidarity my brothers and sisters. There’s been far too much large scale, state-sanctioned killing.

One love,

  1. Henry,
    Wouldn’t it be interesting if every person who watched Eddie Vedder perform “Masters of War” by Bob Dylan here posted a video of “Masters of War” on their blogs, and then the men and women who viewed it on those blogs posted a video on their blogs, and then everybody who viewed the video (Masters of War) on those subsequent blogs would put up a video on their blogs, and then…
    Thank you,

      A virtual protest. Great idea my friend.

      • Cyber-protest … Love the idea! Might we crash Youtube’s servers? Or the NSA’s? No – they’d black out the continent before they let that happen.

        I’m too old for more of this shit! After living through the last ?? how many pre-war warm-ups, I can smell the propaganda from miles away. Re-runs are boring. And damn discouraging at times.

        Even so, thanks for another fine post, Henry.

          Thank you Linda. It’s nice to know that there are people out there who still consider violence to be such an antiquated and infantile method of conflict resolution. I sometimes think that world leaders should be forced to repeat the 2nd grade.

    • I “like” this idea, Jerry. :)

  2. A proper salute to Bob Dylan as well, might I say.

  3. Jeff Nguyen says:

    Vedder’s cover of Masters of War was superb. I wonder if he’s rethought his support of Obama yet.

    • Henry Jekyll says:

      I gotta agree with you there Jeff. This was a really passionate performance. Not so sure about about the second part, but they did seem to make strange bedfellows. Maybe he was motivated by the fear of Romney’s assault on the remaining social programs?

  4. While looking for this song on the tubes of you I discovered Ed Sheeran’s cover. Hope you don’t mind my sharing it here.

Would you like to add anything?
