Bob Dylan's Masterpiece - from Newport, 1964: Chimes of Freedom Flashing

Youssou Ndour :
"Embraced for his beautiful voice and fine songwriting, N'Dour, with his band the Super Etoile de Dakar, has toured the globe for 20 years, all the while adding other styles such as Afro-Cuban and rock."

"Everyone likes to be in on a secret. And like lots of the best singers, Youssou N'Dour knows how to make listeners feel as if they're not just hearing his music but overhearing it."

"Like the musical storytellers in Africa called griots, Senegalese superstar Youssou N'Dour is presenting the culture and history of his people"

Clinton Jubilant Over Ghaddafi's Death ( torture & summary Execution)

Looks like a parody on SNL. Is it real ?

 Hillary Clinton's response to Ghaddfi's death. She shows no concern about the details of his death another possible murder or assassination . If he lived the US would have insisted on keeping him silent and put on trial in a Kangaroo Court like they did Saddam. Another one for American Wild West rough justice rather than the rule of law ie lynchings .

Anti-War Song Bruce Springsteen Bring Them Home

Bruce Springsteen Bring Them Home San Francisco 2006 YouTube
Song written by Pete Seeger in 1965 during the Vietnam War

Now the song is sung to bring the troops back from Iraq and Afghanistan .
These wars can not be won.
The Iraqi people are not America's enemies and their oil belongs not to America but to the Iraqi people.
And staying in Afghanistan for what to protect "the Opium Crops" and to piss off every living soul in the region .
Meanwhile the US government has forced NATO troops to carpet bomb Libya for political, strategic and economic reasons to extend the American Empire

Pete Seeger and Friends, "Bring 'em Home"

And the band played Waltzing Mathilda Anti-war song

This is an anti-war song and is an indictment of how the English used the soldiers from the British Colonies especially as mere cannon fodder-sending them into the bloodiest battles or in the first waves of attacks on the enemy the Turks, the Germans- so the Australians, Canadians, the Irish & Scots were treated as mere pieces of meat for the Wars ongoing meat grinder.

"The young people ask
What are they marching for?
and I ask myself The same question"

And the band played Waltzing Mathilda-played by The Pogues

Here's the version by one of my favorites Liam Clancy

Sky Pilot-Eric Burdon & The Animals Hypocrisy of Military Chaplains

The Hypocrisy of military Chaplains as they ignore the Sermon on The Mount
Sky Pilot by Eric Burdon & the Animals

And here's Bob Dylan's take on the notion that the USA has God on its side but don't other countries even US enemies also claim to have God on their side as well.
Why are Americans unable to understand that they are not exceptional in this regard. The Serbs when they slaughtered their non-Christian neighbors also insisted and still do that God is on their side.
The terrorists who attacked the US on 9/11 also claimed to have God on their side .
The British, the Dutch, the Germans, the French, the Spaniards when they had their empires also believed that their actions were justified because each of them claimed to have God on their side.

Kay Kyser Praise The Lord & Pass The Ammunition

Serj Tankian -Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition

and of course here's Vera Lynn singing "We'llMeet Again" as a backdrop to the finally of the anti-war satirical film "Dr. Strangelove "

and there you go again.
