Mahalo Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan was awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature. Among his many songs written over decades was “Masters of War” that included these lyrics:
“Come you masters of war, You that build the big guns, You that build the death planes. You that build all the bombs. You that hide behind walls. You that hide behind desks. I just want you to know I can see through your masks…
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good? Will it buy you forgiveness.
Do you think that it could? I think you will find When your death takes its toll
All the money you made Will never buy back your soul…”
Not even Jesus could forgive what you do!… And I’ll stand on your grave till I’m sure you’re dead.”
Masters of War Have Names!
Top U.S. War Corporations include: Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp., Raytheon Co., Boeing Co., General Dynamics Corp. etc. – the list of corporate and government “Masters of War” is long, very long!
“How many deaths will it take till we know, that too many people have died? The answer my friend is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind.”
