Fools - Dangerous Fools - Here too - Blair lying to Parliament

www.euronet.nl/users/lambooij-av.

My name is Judith and I am a famous Dutch singer/songwriter. I wrote a song
against war, called "Fools rule the world". After that, my recordcompany throw me out....
You can download the song (for free) at www.euronet.nl/users/lambooij-av. I
hope that the song get global support and will be heard everywhere!!

FOOLS RULE THE WORLD
(music & lyrics: Judith Jobse)

(Bush): "We need to break the cycle of violence"
(Roosevelt): : "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself"
(Bush): "it's essential"

Mighty men, do you know the names
Of the innocent people used up in your games
You give one-way tickets to eternal lives
To our parents, children, husbands and wives

A world in sorrow, is what you leave behind
Yet nobody stops you, are we all so blind
See those angels fly, while our brothers die

Refrain: tell me, tell me, why do fools rule the world to gain power with our lives
Fools, we let fools fool with other peoples' lives

Enjoy your freedom, when you've lost your child
When hurt captures your heart, you're a prisoner for live Killing the beast, doesn't ease the pain
Hate has never brought love

Refrain: tell me, tell me, why do fools rule the world to gain power with our lives
fools, we let fools fool with other peoples' lives

"Of course the people don't want war... that is understood. But it's
always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a
democracy,a fascist dictatorship, a parliament, or a communist
dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to
the bidding of the leaders.

That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the
country to danger. It works the same in any country."

--Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg trials, 1946,
from "Nuremberg Diary" by G. M. Gilbert

Unfortunately, the song is shite, so don't bother listening to it.

I weep for the Dutch recording industry.
