Genevieve Cora Fraser: Never Saying You're Sorry

Bush's War on Terror Means
Never Saying You're Sorry


By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Because they will not bend
To our will we must kill
The power-grab by extreme
And ruthless forces

With US or against US
Vanquished they will be
Crushed by the might
Of the Land of the Free

A proud and independent
People buried in a soccer field
Trucked in body parts
Remains unmarked and free

Blocked from fleeing
Bombs and bullets
Fly free not liberty
Al-Sadr's insurgent
Ingrates not one
Will escape US
Liberators that we be

The War on Terror
Is inside us outside
All around us
Martyrs on a crusade
To protect Iraq
From freedom their
Way it is our way
Or the Highway
To liberate the oil
From terrorist nations
At war we'll ever be

Iraq's transition is
Unshaken more
Troops more troops
My kingdom
For a horse
The Terrorists
Are here to stay

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
