Perchance To Dream

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

I had a dream
one eye was yellow
one eye was green
and in this dream there were reams of schemes
buckling out from my jean’s
pockets
I looked over the hill and a smoke signal
read
remember, life is but a dream —so row – YOUR-  boat!!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Clear your psyche write a poem, start – do not think, just follow the words until they reach their natural conclusion, have fun!

A writer sits by the river with a sliver of an idea and writes about the mighty and the honest about the evils of the time and the kind people who came before, that fought the war for truth peace justice and the american way.  Their almost gone now but the lesson of their fierce love of freedom rings across this land….. remember why they fought ww2 ….for freedom from tyrants (from within and without) the same reason Washington and his barefooted soldiers walked in the snow to Trenton N.J. —for peace, to have the ability to pursue happiness.

The Problem Of The Chicken And Egg Use Of Weapons And Contractors Globally

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

War makes more war especially if  unregulated use of weapons and outside contractors is allowed.

Has war expanded in the Middle East because of true conflict or because of the profit to be made in the production of new weapons and lack of oversight of contractors actions.

US Destroys Its Own Weapons in Enemy Hands

‘Until and unless the US understands that the answer to the world’s problems is not war and that arming the world will lead to continuous wars and kill millions of innocent, we will not see an end to an increasingly unstable world.’

by
Thalif Deen, IPS News

UNITED NATIONS – When the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) captured a treasure trove of U.S. weapons from fleeing Iraqi soldiers last month, one of the rebel leaders with a morbid sense of humour was quoted as saying rather sarcastically: “We hope the Americans would honour their agreements and service our helicopters.”

As fighter planes continue attacking ISIL targets, some of the U.S. airstrikes are, paradoxically, aimed at U.S.-made helicopters, Humvees, armoured personnel carriers and anti-aircraft artillery guns originally supplied to the Iraqi armed forces and currently deployed by the rebel group.

Not surprisingly, they are all under U.S. warranties for maintenance, repair and servicing.

The whole military exercise has degenerated into a political farce compounded by last week’s airdrops of weapons to Kurdish forces battling ISIL, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), in Kobani, inside Syria.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that arms and ammunition parachuted from over 10,000 feet high above the skies – and known as Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPAD) – has not always reached the Kurds.

Seven Years Later, Blackwater Guards Found Guilty of Massacre in Iraq
Critics say verdict is ‘step towards accountability’ but does not hold top-ranking Blackwater executives and U.S. government leaders responsible for war crimes

by
Sarah Lazare, staff writer

More than seven years after guards with the private mercenary company Blackwater opened fire on Iraqi civilians in downtown Baghdad, killing 17 people and wounding 20, a federal jury on Wednesday found four of the men involved with the massacre guilty in the case.

Former guard Nicholas Slatten was handed a guilty verdict for first-degree murder, the Associated Press reports. The other men—Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard—were all found guilty of voluntary manslaughter.

The men were employed by the U.S. State Department at the time of the massacre at Baghdad’s Nisour Square on September 16, 2007. Their victimes include 9-year-old Ali Kinani—killed by a gun shot to the head.

Reported as the largest known massacre of Iraqi civilians by U.S. private contractors, the incident became a flashpoint of outrage over the atrocities that U.S. forces—particularly mercenaries—inflict on occupied civilian populations in Iraq.

US Given New Deadline for Torture Photos ‘More Disturbing’ Than Abu Ghraib Judge says Obama administration must clarify why thousands of images depicting abuse of detainees held by U.S. forces have never been seen by American public

by
Jon Queally, staff writer

A federal judge has given the Obama administration less than two additional months to make its case why photos of abuse and torture by U.S. military forces against detainees captured following the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan should not be released to the public.

As The Guardian’s Spencer Ackerman reports, Judge Alvin Hellerstein on Tuesday told government lawyers they must present a written argument for keeping more than 2,100 photographs secret even as many of them are thought to show graphic examples of mistreatment worse even than that shown in the infamous photos that depicted torture of prisoners in Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq in late 2003.

PEACE

Contact congress with your views on the ever expanding wars funded by us . using a BLACK budget – no oversight by the President or Congress. No transparency…..

Think of all those trillions of dollars going to help veterans, after school projects, college grants, food stamps, small business loans – the list is endless and would create prosperity!!

The problem is not that there is not enough money in the US budget, the problem is it’s allocation!

Magic Carpet Ride    Steppenwolf  –FEEDBACK!!!

Below from http://www.wikipedia.org

Magic Carpet Ride” is a rock song written by John Kay and Rushton Moreve from the Canadian-American hard rock band Steppenwolf. The song was initially released in 1968 on the album The Second. It was the lead single from that album, peaking at No. 3 in the US, and staying in the charts for 16 weeks, longer than any other Steppenwolf song.[1]

The lyrics “I like to dream, right between my sound machine” were inspired by a hi-fi home stereo system John Kay bought with royalties from his first album.
