You Promised Me Democracy


You promised me democracy,

But look what you have done to me.

You robbed my past,

and future stole,

and a present

left to me,

crushed beyond

a mending hope.

Ten years before invading me,

you broke my dams

and bridges bombed,

and power plants,

and sewage lines,

and water mains,

You fed the plants

with pesticide,

The baby food and medicine

you destroyed;

and the silos

of my grain

you set aflame.

So I may not

make good my loss

nor repair

my water mains,

you shackled me

in sanctions,

and a million kids

you starved to death.

I lived Saddam’s

nightmare through.

I knew what I

must watch out for.

But now I don’t know

where to hide

for death has lost

its pattern now.

He used to kill

and bury us,

friendless in

our unmarked graves;

but our names

he kept on files.

And now that you

are killing us,

we do not even

have a grave,

nor a number

nor a name–

thus in your books

we never lived.

He was your friend

who hurried us,

so many to their

early deaths,

with weapons that you

sold to him,

while you looked

the other way.

He was not

a ‘tyrant’ then,

which of late

he has become.

You merely changed

the label,

so you could come

and liberate,

the wealth that we

are sitting on,

and this you call

our liberation!

You promised me

democracy,

but look what you

have done to me.

With bombs you won

my heart over,

with blows you changed

my mind.

You tore into

my home at night,

and pulverized

my only peace.

And shrieking as

my mother watched,

with frightened children

Gathered ‘round,

you floored my father

in a heap,

with kicks and blows

and rifle butts,

and tore my humble

home apart.

Then you led

our men away,

with tied hands

behind their backs,

and with their eyes folded blind,

into the endless prison night.

And there you tore

my father’s robe.

To cover then

his nakedness,

upon his head

you put the hood,

and leashed him like

a dog on show,

and your dogs

unleashed on him.

You promised me

democracy,

but look what you

have done to me.

You took my youth

in prime away–

you shredded wedding

gatherings.

The little joys

that I had left,

merriment in

a broken life,

now in collateral

damage rest,

rising up

in smoke and flame,

of a mindless

bombing run.

‘Tis peel and husk

I have for food,

and water mixed

with sewage now

is all I have

to slake my thirst.

You even took

my sand away,

polluted by

uranium dust,

so when I have

my children they

shall be deformed,

unlovely and

unkissable–

and so unlike

your lovely kids!

My millions homeless

roam the road,

and orphaned children

beg in streets.

My women raised

in sanctity,

are now the stuff

of ravishment.

My men are slaughtered

out of hand,

and widows search

the morgues for them.

My dawn is dull,

and dusk is blood,

and bombs and blasts,

my afternoons.

My night in hopelessness is sunk,

when peace with me

a refuge takes,

and heaps on me

another dawn–

another search

of bodies lost;

another count

of heaped insults;

another day

to death evade,

call it life,

and celebrate.

So now when I

am fighting back,

my fearlessness

is causing awe.

Unequal,

but unafraid,

when I equalize myself,

and blow my only

life away,

you are shocked,

and label me

a terrorist!

I who want

my honor lost

and country back–

–a terrorist?

And you who came here

for my oil,

on crutches of

a shameless lie,

are and always

shall remain,

the humanist!

I know your type.

I see your greed

and hunger know,

but it is those

I want to know,

whose vote does so

empower you.

Do they not see

what they have done?

They promised me

democracy,

but look what they

have done to me!

    But Mark–that is ‘democracy’ israel style, and it is israel that dictates how the world will be governed. Our leaders never grow tired of telling us that ‘israel is the only democracy in the ME’ and this is how israel treats the Palestinians, with our leaders blessings. So doesn’t it make sense that this is also our leaders definition of democracy??? Don’t worry, our turn is coming to experience democracy israeli style.

    Sorry kids, that IS democracy. The exact reason it was rejected by the founders of the republic in the USA.
    Anyone who understands that this is exactly what ‘democracy’ means is not surprised by the brutal effects it brings.
    This is democracy delivered by another, AMERIKA Inc., the Empire of democracy and all the lies within. The dictatorship of the proletariat, is the manufacture of consent–therefore, unchained elite rule by the Money Power.

    You think its bad to read it – even if like most Americans – you don’t have any conscience? Wait till you SEE IT! LIKE I HAVE! It comes back- especially at night – the screams – the look of defiance on the tear-filled face of a 5 year old half naked Palestinian orphan – as innocent as my own grandchild – who has seen his sister raped and his parents murdered and his home destroyed by monsters so evil that the Lord Christ HIMSELF had damned them for all the world to see and read in the Bible – YET this passage is NEVER EVER spoken in an American faux Christian church – to the everlasting shame of the self-anointed pastors and the priests – all false frauds who are sworn to obey the Devil and his progeny- the JEWS!

    When I strip away the veneer of sham and shame and cowardice and hypocrisy that is – ‘YOUR NEIGHBOR and MY neighbor’ – a man who has NEVER served his nation either IN or OUT of uniform. A person whose every conversations starts and ends with something about the NFL or NASCAR – or a ‘business deal’.

    You know who I mean. The one next door with the spoiled undisciplined whiny kids – all with I-pods and their own ‘Blackberries’ . The ones who will scream till they are horse at a Stupid Bowl Game – provided by their Jew masters to fill their empty heads and emptier hearts, and yet will not even LISTEN for FIVE MINUTES – to ANY wisdom concerning the horrors HE and HIS ILK are responsible for as surely as if they have pulled the trigger.

    As long as ‘Bubba’ – the Merkan moron, has his cold Bud and his NFL on the wide screen – he does NOT give ONE DAMN BLOODY FLYING RAT’S ASS HOW MANY INNOCENT RAG-HEAD – SAND-NIGGER – TOWEL-HEAD – CAMEL-JOCKEY CHILDREN ARE BUTCHERED. THAT – people – is the God’s honest truth and you know it!

    Maybe it is a terrible thing to say – but I PRAY TO GOD that one day they must watch the EXACT SAME HORRORS being committed upon THEIR OWN beloved children and can do NOTHING other than to stand by helpless and impotent as they watch everything they have cared for and loved – suffer the SAME violent horrid nightmarish fate that THEY THEMSELVES are RESPONSIBLE for imposing on innocent human beings who have never so much as done them the most REMOTE harm!

    WE Americans – we UGLY SHALLOW SELFISH IGNORANT IMBECILE GREEDY Americans have caused more REAL LIFE suffering destruction and death than portrayed in ALL of the violent ‘entertainment’ films on earth together! What kind of filth have we become – who teach our sons to murder helpless little children for fun and sport – or because some psychopath scum like Generals Be-TRAYUS or Mc-WARMONGER have ordered the children to be butchered.

    The insane barbaric senseless genocidal madness goes on day after week after month after year after year and all we can discuss is who will be on the next AmeriKan Idol – or how many women will be seduced in this season’s episodes of the Jew production – ‘MAD MEN’.

    Will someone who has live a longer life – or achieved more titles and accomplishments or learned more languages – or experienced more travel or faced death more times or suffered more emotional pain from watching his country DIE – or experienced more formal and pragmatic experiences in REAL LIFE ‘education’ – or served his nation’s interests longer than I have – please tell me just ONE damn good reason to ‘be PROUD to be an AmeriKan’ – today – JUST ONE!

    We are as evil as ANY people on earth have been.

    DEMOCRACY = DEMONCRACY = FASCISM = DICTATORSHIP

    The sad thing is that even those foolish Muslims (like the stupid Zionist Christians) have been successfully indoctrinated into believing in DEMOCRACY, which in real fact means JUDEOCRACY, rule by DEMONS or DEMONCRACY!

    There was never such a thing as Western democracy except in the books; it has always been FASCISM from day one! And, like Dr Kent Hovind used to say, all democracies end up in FASCISM and DICTATORSHIP!

    Whether I like or not the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they at least granted Americans INALIENABLE RIGHTS, GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS making sure that nobody could ever take them away from them, but for some Kabbalistc reasons JEWS managed to con the Goyin and take away those God-Given rights without them putting up a fight and made the Christian themselves vote for scrapping them, and placed all their perverts at the top of all American Institutions.

    Ever since I read history by myself (outside the Citadels of Slavery), I learned that NOBODY SHOULD EVER BELIEVE ANY PROMISE MADE BY WHITE EUROPEANS! Ask Jewish Pr Howard Zinn (deceased now and for ever because people will never learn!) what did the “WHITE GRAND FATHER OF WASHINGTON” do with all their Treaties with the Natives?

    What did the JEWISH BARBARIANS AND THIEVES do with all their PEACE TREATIES, ACCORDS, PEACE PROCESSES,AND PROMISES? At least, they are more honest than the White Europeans, because they have been saying all along that they are KOLNIDRISTS and will never respect any promises they make to the Goyim because it is a tenet of their Satanic religion to LIE, to PROMISE and not to respect their promise!

    The Judeo-Freemasons said they carried out the French Revolution. I heard the representative of the Grand Orient de France (situated withinn 5 minutes walk from my home and work place and in the very heart of the Jewish Quarter) say this on French television. The Freemasons chopped the heads of the Christian monarchs and gave the sheeple a UTOPIC LIBERTÉ – ÉGALITÉ – FRATERNITÉ concept that they knew perfectly well France would never achieve until the end of times!

    The best system of government which will grand real FREEDOM (Liberty), EQUALITY and BROTHER/SISTERHOOD (that is JUSTICE FOR ALL) remains the ISLAMIC STATE or a REPUBLIC where there are no citizens and where all people have INALIENABLE GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS that no Jewish or Atheist Devil can ever take away from them.

    AMERICA had the best Republic in modern history, but it became a Jewish Terrorist State at least since 1913 with its bastard child ISRAEL in the very heart of Arab land!

    DOWN WITH DEMOCRACY/DEMONCRACY!
    HELL WITH JEWISH AMERICA!
    HELL WITH APARTHEID ISRAEL!
    HELL WITH ALL FRIENDS OF ISRAEL!

    The democracy that the West promotes is that the electorate elects representatives who no sooner than in office, they become subservient to Zionist masters whose whims become the commands of the representatives!

    All the talk about democracy is nothing but a load of baloney! True democracy is in reality non-existent in the West.

    Is not the time to read what the prophet said?
    When that time comes, take the fire and leave the water alone,
    for then fire is water and water is the fire.

    When that time comes, take the dictator and leave democracy alone for then, dictator is democracy and democracy is the dictator.

    When that time comes, the truth teller is called a lier, and the lier is called the truth teller.

    Is not the time to see that your best friend (Israel)is your enemy, and the Muslim world is your friend?

    The Bolshevik revolution was spawned by jews. When the Soviet army invaded and took over the Baltic States; Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, they held ‘free elections’, in which there was one choice – to be absorbed into the soviet Union. You voted FOR the ballot or your didn’t vote. And if you didn’t vote, chances are you didn’t live much longer. The results? 96% voted in favor of being absorbed into the Soviet Union. The other 4% were shipped of to Siberia.

    There you have it – jewish style democracy ala the Soviet Union.
    Remember, Stalin, Marx and Lenin were all jewish.

    If the Truth Seeker had a comment section i would reply TO THIS:

    “Banned Iran missile sale costs Russia $1 billion. Russia’s refusal to complete the sale of the S-300 missile system could cost even more if Iran successfully sues etc etc…”
    WITH THIS:
    SO WHAT? WHATS A BILLION TO THE JEWS? A SMALL PORTION OF THE MONEY SMALL TIME THIEVE MADDOF STOLE WOULD BE DELIVERED BY NETANYAHODI TO MAKE UP FOR SUCH “TINY LOSS”
    i say “small-time” thieve because one billion is nothing compared to others Jews thievery…
    just check out part this old comment by Joe Cortina …

    “It wasnt the Arabs who recently wrecked the US entire economy and looted the country as did mega criminals like he brow Nicholas Cosmo; stole three hundred million Ezra mars ca, stole two billion, or he brow thief, Bern Madoff; stole sixty billion or he brow mega traitor, nation robber, Rabbi Dov Zakheim, who literally went raping the US nation (the Pentagon) for a whopping two trillion!, The largest theft in American history!”

    Well folks, here we go again.

    SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (ABC 4 News) – Sales people working neighborhoods in Northern Utah County have been asking some odd questions that have nothing to do with making the sale. Folks are reporting that they’re asking about the new National Security Agency’s data center that is being built at Camp Williams.

    The sales people say they’re Israeli art students and are selling their works to raise money for a gallery. Some have even produced what appear to be legitimate Israeli passports.

    So, why would art students be interested in an NSA data center?

    Blogs and even church bulletins are buzzing. One such bulletin sent out to LDS women in Highland said, “This is a scam! These are not art students and federal law enforcement groups are actually investigating their ties to organized crime and terrorist groups.” The note went on, “Part of their mission here is to gain information on the new NSA installation coming to our area.”

    One Israeli artist knocked on Gail Black’s door in Eagle Mountain. She bought a painting from him knowing that the price was too high, but she explained that she felt sorry for him. I asked her if he looked like a Mossad spy, she laughed and said, “No, just a poor thirsty boy.” She said the subject of the NSA did not come up in their conversation.

    Saratoga Springs residents have complained to their police department about the art students. Officer Matt Schauerhamer tracked down one group at a restaurant. He does not know if they were spies, but they’re definitely not artists. “I told them, ‘If you’re actually an artist, why don’t you draw something?’ I gave them a piece of paper and gave them my pen. They produced a picture that was about on par with what my kindergartner could have done.”

    Officer Schauerhamer cited the group for soliciting without a city business license and then passed along their information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He said ICE is investigating.

    ABC 4 also contacted other agencies that might have interest in possible door-to-door spies. We were told by a spokesman for Utah Homeland Security that they were unaware of the Israeli artists and the FBI had no comment.

    Shades of 9/11.

    No federal law groups are investigating these MOSSAD spies, if anything, the FBI is probably escorting them around, providing cover and protection while giving them intelligence on where and what to spy on.

    “No federal law groups are investigating these MOSSAD spies, if anything, the FBI is probably…”– Greg Bacon

    Western Intelligence is ‘of a whole’–by this I mean, under one umbrella. All of these agencies are part of the global ‘Crown’ Network’ {and always have been}.

    The world is run by stagecraft. It is the GAME, whether economic comics ala MONOPOLY, or world wars and revolutions, voting, ‘mass movements’, EVERYTHING is prescripted and financed–both sides of any conflict.

    My best advice is, don’t show up for rehearsal, don’t put on the costume and make up, don’t learn your lines–THINK FOR YOURSELF.
