And another one.

Since the beginning of this year, 146 mass shootings and just under 5000 killed.

When will it end?

Very interesting way democracy is being prevented from being used in Tennessee where decision is made on a voice call without counting.

Don't you just love the way democracy works in the Yanklands.

Not soon it seems:

I’d have thought, given your monotonous - oft expressed - visceral hatred of all things US (posted in any forum thread from A-Z), you’d be delighted. :?

This poem was written back in the mid 60s as a reaction to the Yanks dropping millions of bombs on to Vietnam in the name of freedom and democracy of course. It needs to be said. He also mentions Korea and Palastine too.

Very refreshing to see his son perform the song. A chip off the old block as it were.



Amerika Katil

Defol git benim yurdumdan
Amerika katil katil
Yıllardır bizi bitirdin
Amerika katil katil

Devleti devlete çatar
İt gibi pusuda yatar
Kan döktürür silah satar
Amerika katil katil

Japonya'yı yiyen velet
Dünyadaki tek nedamet
İki yüzlü kahpe millet
Amerika katil katil

Su diye yutturur buzu
Katil düştük kuzu kuzu
Dünyanın en namussuzu
Amerika katil katil

İnsanlıkta ırk sarısı
Küstü dünyanın yarısı
Vietnam'ın pis karısı
Amerika katil katil

Mahzuni şerif uyuma
Gün geldi çattı akşama
Bizden selam Vietnam'a
Amerika katil katil...

If there is a war anywhere in the world you can bet your bottom dollar the Yanks not only have an interest in it but also back one side. Normally the other side is backed by Russia. Sudan is different though. One side is backed by Sisi who is under the control for the yanks and the other side is backed by Saudi which is also under the control of the Yanks. And of course in the center of all this is gold fields.

What a world we live in.

Yet another mass shooting with 4 killed and 28 injured with some critical condition in Dadeville Alabama. It follows a shooting on the same day at a park in Louisville, Kentucky, in which two people were killed and another four injured.

...an interesting critique; he lists five essential elements of society where the US is quite different.
