Fighting to help the people of Iraq gain a democracy

He started out wanting Osama,
but hunted Saddam.

He said we were fighting terrorism in Afghanistan
Avenging 911,
Yet we end up changing Iraq’s political status?

Claimed Iraq had treacherous weapons…
didn’t find any.
Meanwhile,
North Korea stands on the sidelines waving red flags,
Showcasing their arms.
Undisclosed,
Loud and clear.

Two Thousand Five Hundred Forty-Six.

Said they could come home in
Said they could come home in
Said they could come home in
Don’t know when they’re coming home
Don’t know when they’re coming home
Don’t know when they’re coming home

Husbands and Wives pray day and night for the safe return of their other half.
Mothers bringin in babies alone cause daddy’s not home.
Kids go months missin a parent
and parents missin their day to day activities
Both havin to substitute kisses and hugs
For letters, pictures and brief phone calls…
That unfortunately sometimes come an unexpected stop.

We invade other countries over reasons unclear
Guiding individuals a world away to a freedom that most don’t embrace,
While hurricanes and floods smother our states
And sista’s and brotha’s in our back yard,
Imprisoned by nature’s fury,
Plead help for 5 hellish days and nights.

Two Thousand Five Hundred Forty-Six

Loved Ones…

They fought in a war that many don’t understand,
They fought in a war that many disagree with,
They fought in a war that has no certain outcome or ending.
Loyally sacrificing their lives on our behalf,
Sadly caught up in a catch-22.

U.S. Casualties as of July 6th, 2006
Thank them,
Remember them,
Honor them.

हेत्छाकुप्पा किराँतीहरूको पुर्खा हो । हेत्छाकुप्पा मानिसहरूको शैशवता हो । सभ्यताको थालनी हो । ऊ नै संघर्षको पहिलो पात्र हो र ऊ नै दु:खको पहिलो पात्र हो, संघर्षशील र मार्गनिर्देशक पात्र हो । किराँतीहरू शिकारी युगदेखि कृषियुगमा प्रवेश गरेको पनि उसकै पालादेखि हो । त्यसैले हेत्छाकुप्पा किराँती सभ्यताको बिम्ब हो । यो मिथकलाई आधुनीक हेत्छाकुप्पामा प्रतिबिम्बित गरेर यो "हेत्छाकुप्पा" उपन्यास लेखिएकोछ ......
