This so called holy war has been going for so long now ,
but if they think that war is right then they are wrong somehow .

The tanks roll on and guns fire
and missiles don't fall in love .
Panic hits both day and night .
Towns are crushed .
People push and shove .

A hell of a holy war .
With fruits so bitter to taste .
Good going bad
and life that can't be replaced . .
What a waste .

When its an eye for an eye ,
and then a tooth for a tooth .
Everyone will be blinded ,
if they can't see the truth .

Immune are they to the love of God .
Wrapped up in their cause .
They think they're right .
With their immoral code
and made up laws .

Do not kill .
Happy are the peacemakers
lets start trying .
If love could conquer us all ,
there would be no more dying .

There would be peace on Earth.
There would be no reason to fear .
Until then there will be these holy wars year after year .

With the bloodshed on the streets
and many people dying .
God's given us his holy commandments,
there's no denying .

Peace is all that war defeats
and no war can be holy .
Man is wrong
he needs to understand that it's not solely,

up to him to justify killing
for God ,
is ok .
But in the end
theocracy will have the final say .

I watched the entire UN meeting on March 7,2003 and the weapons inspectors found nothing of a threat to America - except that the documents used against Iraq (submitted by the UK/US intelligence) which were to prove that Iraq pursued nuclear arms were FORGERIES ! They are being framed. They are damned if they do, and damned if they don't. The war of aggression has already started by US Marines inside the DMZ between Kuwait and Iraq, in violation of UN rules. For three days, allies have attacked Iraq, aiming to leave them more defenseless when the US/UK begin their illegal invasion in full. Just like in my youth, when watching the cowboys and Indians - my sympathies go out to the innocent victims in Iraq. This is an outrage that will not bring peace, safety, or security to the world. It will only help maintain the US lifestyle, which consumes 45 % of the world's nonrenewable resources. Bush snubs treaties galore - Kyoto, germ warfare, anti-ballistic, comprehensive test ban treaty, land mine treaty, and refuses to join an international court of justice, because the USA should be immune to criticism from the rest of the world !!! I hang my head in shame over this country's leadership. "Peace is all that war defeats." - how true !
