Jeers for Senator John McCain!
The “Maverick” Republican senator John McCain of Arizona, thinking that he is smart enough to replace George Bush in 1908 has proposed Bombing Iran to continue George Bush’s legacy of bombing Iraq in 2001.
No sane person in the world agrees with the senator from Arizona that invasion or bombing of other countries to submission is the solution to America’s problems. Most Americans have already voted against this and hopefully more of them do so in 2008.
I first present the Parker’s poem written on that occasion.

If You're Happy And You Know It Bomb Iraq
by John Robbins
If you cannot find Osama, bomb Iraq.
If the markets are a drama, bomb Iraq.
If the terrorists are Saudi,
And your alibi is shoddy,
And your tastes remain quite gaudy,
If you never were elected, bomb Iraq.
If your mood is quite dejected, bomb Iraq.
If you think that SUVs,
Are the best thing since sliced cheese,
And your father you must please,
If the globe is quickly warming, bomb Iraq.
If the poor will soon be storming, bomb Iraq.
We assert that might makes right,
Burning oil is a delight,
For the empire we will fight,
If we have no allies with us, bomb Iraq.
If we think that someone's dissed us, bomb Iraq.
So to hell with the inspections,
Let's look tough for the elections,
Close your mind and take directions,
If corporate fraud is growin', bomb Iraq.
If your ties to it are showin', bomb
If your politics are sleazy,
And hiding that ain’t easy,
And your manhood’s getting queasy,
Fall in line and follow orders, bomb Iraq.
For our might now knows no borders, bomb Iraq.
Disagree? We’ll call it treason, It's the make war not love season, Even if we have no reason,

The following lyrics are my contribution to express the aspirations of these great men!
By Ali A. Parsa
Since we’re losing in Iraq, bomb Iran
It’s the duty of every hawk, bomb Iran
Since both these are Shiite
And we like them killed in fight
What a beautiful killing sight, bomb Iran.
Before Dems cut the war funds, bomb Iran
And condemn us on that ground, bomb Iran
Since Iran has no Osama
We will use the Nukillorama
Let’s enjoy the newsorama, bomb Iran.
Our weapons of mass destruction must be used, bomb Iran
Taxpayers’ money must be abused, bomb Iran
True our schools are in shamble
Poor people’s bellies grumble
And our health care systems stumble, bomb Iran
If our national debt is sky high, bomb Iran
We will hide this with a big lie, bomb Iran
If America’s going bankrupt
If the war mongers are corrupt
We blame the world for this, bomb Iran
Says the King George Seven, bomb Iran
He gets his orders from Heaven, bomb Iran
Since he’s the boss on the stage
He can defy each and every sage
Till he bombs the world to Stone Age , bomb Iran
