US generals ‘will quit’ if Bush orders Iran attack

SOME of America’s most senior military commanders are prepared to resign if the White House orders a military strike against Iran, according to highly placed defence and intelligence sources.
Tension in the Gulf region has raised fears that an attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely before President George Bush leaves office. The Sunday Times has learnt that up to five generals and admirals are willing to resign rather than approve what they consider would be a reckless attack.

The prowling empire’s a coffin;
a burial plot of shattered lies,
and within its quagmire of bleached bone,
warriors lurch from its grasp
making a mess

out of the flesh,
the living disturbed,
torn away in the streets.

Instead of guns the warriors are using dissent,
breaking ranks, deciding for themselves.

Their decorated humanity opens fire
on the puppet master’s strings,
shouting down the noise machine
with brazen dispute.

The red cackle of life’s rising up
with a screeching horn to its lips
leading us forward, tongues wagging.

High above the newly lifted ground
the warriors are sensing movement.
Upon the surface, the wet ground,
feet have begun to move,
eyes to open.
All this commotion,
tap-tapping under hopeful skies
filled with clouds made of string.
