Inspired by the GOP/Neocon desire for more and bigger wars.
When it comes to reproductive rights,
But they’re also against those things
When it comes to military fights.
They believe that a war begins
As opposed to the normal way
That the beginning of war is defined.
Once the idea and rationale
For a war is germinated,
That war must be started,
And can never be terminated.
(And preventing wars
Must be resisted
The country must be forced
To carry and bear that war,
Even when the people
Don’t want to anymore.
(Illegally created wars
Don’t merit an exception.
After all, a war can’t be blamed
For the means of its conception.)
Having terminated one disastrous unwanted war,
Obama now wants to prevent a new one.
Republicans, on the other hand,
Seem to want to renew one.
(Wars are always so cute when they’re small,
But a 13 year old war is no fun at all.)
Funny how Repubs say they believe
In human life’s sanctity and value,
Yet constantly find new ways
But I guess it makes sense
(Or a little bit, maybe)
When you consider
That GWOT is their baby.
And when you believe
Wars are beautiful things
And that we should accept
Whatever wars nature brings…
Then each chance for war
Is a blessed event,
Is always money well-spent.
So if we have a chance to fight another war,
After all, the more little GWOTs running around,
PS: Please note that I am not against taking action against ISIS in Syria, nor am I against the President’s plan to provide aid to moderate rebel groups in Syria (on the contrary, if anything, I tend to be more hawkish than President Obama). What I am against is the GOP mindset that seems to revel in the act of war itself and is constantly on the search for new and bigger wars for America to fight, as if wars were blessings (it does seem eerily similar to their opposition to family planning). Plus, I’m strongly against the GOP tendency to demonize Obama for everything bad that happens and attack him for whatever he does.
