When War Criminals Run Countries

“We have to ask ourselves how it can be that the world’s worse criminals—people responsible for the death and displacement of millions of peoples—occupy high office...?” Paul Craig Roberts. The Unz Review, March 9, 2016.

When war criminals run countries, there are endless wars
Armies are used as hit men creating carnage and gore
It doesn’t matter who is elected or attains “democratic” power
The criminals will still be in control, and will continue to flower

The masses think a “new day is dawning” but is it really all a façade?
Is the “new beginning,” just the old in new attire; is it all so very sad?
The same people that cause all the problems get powerful “new positions”
This is called “democracy at work” with all its “nice traditions”

Still, the people believe “change” is coming and hope springs anew
But, behind the scenes the criminals are laughing, if only the people knew
Eventually they will realize, it’s all a phony staged reality
They still have all the poverty and wars, and all the imposed brutality

Politics is just a dirty game where the people get to place an X
This gives those who get the power, control over their docile “subjects”
The people are taxed and taxed, then taxed again, and more and more
Then send their sons and daughters to fight in planned endless bloody wars

Still, carnage and destruction creates “jobs,” and “jobs” is the magic word
The world is a great big stage in “the theatre of the absurd”
As long as the willing “audience” is kept happy and content
There will be no complaints, or any loud “unpatriotic” dissent

And so the system continues with all its “pomp” and power
Propaganda is promoted daily and by the passing hour
Promises and more promises paid for with taxpayers monies
Is this what is happening today, when war criminals run countries?
