Cua Bono...............Who Benefits

Updated on September 28, 2018

Cua Bono...........Who Benefits

It was a long time ago

in 1962.

We had a message

we didn't understand.

A man called Johnson wanted our land,

he told us clear that he ruled our south.

He said if we didn't do as he planned,

he'd bring in the forces at his command.

He'd bomb us, then paint us orange!

We didn't understand.

I have written a story of how it was,

I have used the words as they said them to us,

strange words we didn't understand.

--Strange words--

"Oh Vietnam,Oh Vietnam

we'll wop you,we'll wop you

and you know we can.

We want your rubber and we want your soil

but most of all we want your oil,

so come on Vietnam, get down on your knees.

We signed a peace plan that was just a tease!

We've got bombs of Orange

that burn and maim

so don't think you can down our planes."

You have copper

"We'll wop you, we'll wop you

we are Uncle Sam,

you have copper in your soil,

you have rubber in your trees.

So come on Vietnam,

get down on your knees

get down on your knees.

We'll landmine your earth,

we'll topple your trees,

and you know we can.

We've got plenty of napaam.

We'll wop you,we'll wop you,

if you resist,if you resist,

and you know we can.

We are Uncle Sam."

Your land will be orange

"If we can't have your land

you will not exist-exist.

Your land will be orange

if you resist.

We have at our disposal

50,000 guys,

we won't worry about their lives".


The world went mad

That was the message we didn't understand !

The world went mad!

they didn't agree with this

American line.

Near and far

Protests were heard from near and far,

solidarity helped us survive.

In 75 we chased them out.

A lesson for life for Uncle Sam,

but even so, most of our

nation were burned alive !

Chemically killed!

Daughters Sons

all lost their lives!

How much sorrow

can a nation abide?

We were strong,

knew what to do!

Rebuild ,rebuild

for the nations youth.



forget who was wrong.

after all it was history,

but oh no !

It wasn't to be.

The greedy came back

The greedy came back

in their quest for oil.

They sent a message

to Saddam Hussein,

he didn't reply

so they sent in the planes!

Good Morning Iraq

When the statues were toppled,

when the women were dead.

They sent a new message

and how it was said.

I have written a story of how it was,

these are the words as they said them to us,

strange words we didn't understand.

"Good morning Iraq!

You didn't believe us,

didn't think that we would attack.

What did you think ?

that we would care !

well I'll tell you,

we had the help of Tory Blair!

A plan

Years ago we had a plan,

we had a plan to invade Vietnam.

That was back in 62,

things went wrong,

we licked our wounds!

Now we are after you!

We are back! We want you ! Iraq!

Oil is the name

Oil is the name of the game!

The United Nations gave us the sack,

but we had Tony in our pack,

he's the new darling of the west!

The news is just filtering in!

Friends of Tony are running scared!

We don't want this hullabulloo.

If he loses it, we won't care,

when he's out who'll remember?

Who was Tony Blair?

A voice that's all

They will remember

a voice that's all.

As he repeats

in all he says,

"believe me,believe me

I am telling the truth !"

That was his line,

they'll also remember

he didn't care!

He wouldn't resign!

When he loses it,

we won't share!

We'll have the land

that was Iraq !!

Oil is the name of the game!

You didn't believe us,

didn't think that we would attack.

We had at our disposal 50,000 guys,

we didn't care about their lives "

Well that was a letter from Bush to saddam ,so who was the winner ?

what was the plan ?

      Yo James. That depends on what history you read or who you listen to. Charlie Thomas of Mitchell County says that planes carried tungsten back from Nam. There are theories but James - you can say to prevent Communism or you can say to promote capitalism for the few and greedy. Somebody made money off Vietnam. Now go find some facts. I just know that capitalism in the United States of America means All Americans work for 1% of the jackasses out there who cannot, will not work, and they will not defend the average American of ANYTHING. That 1% though, will make living intolerable so that our children are forced to get employment from the military and fight other children of other countries. In order to get free dental and medical service a person has to give up his mind, body, and soul? What we are living in now is hell. Yep, I believe this Earth is made into hell by our masters like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Bushes, NYSE, NASDAQ, BIG BUSINESS WORLD WIDE. The only plan these RICH genius MORONS can come up with is for CHILDREN TO DIE!

      Sorry jandee, I woke up back in the USA.

      Well this is quite a poem. As Ralwus points out, Micky did say it all. Bravo for exercising your voice and expressing your opinions in such a poetic fashion. As the great Smedley Butler said: "War is a racket." Period. War is waged for profits and prolonged for profits, not for any of the other preposterous reasons the people may delude themselves into believing. Such a shame. Thanks again.

      Actually, the historical truth is that Uncle Sam had nothing it wanted in Viet Nam. It did try, perhaps wrongly, to protect the South from Communism—that Mass Murderer of 80 million human souls.

      Maxine - this is awesome, really. As Micky wrote above, so much truth in there, and, if anything can, the truth can make us free!

      Thanks for putting it all into words.

      Love and peace

      Yo yo yo!!! We have to flag this hub for having too much truth here! Jandee, some folks left part of your area a few hundred years ago. Some were pretty wicked. Of course some of the wicked stayed over there so that they could make a good "tag-team" or something. But hundreds of years ago they came to America to create a new world. These people were yearning to be free. These were white people yearning to own black people, red people, yellow people, and other white people. The white crackers have not stopped enslaving people in all this time. Of course nobody owns people like the Rothchilds. They live a little closer to your neck of the woods I guess but the whole world is owned by them and a few more. I could talk about these "business freaks" who think of all of us as their slaves. I could talk about the United Fruit Company and how Fidel finally kicked their sorry butts out of Cuba and how I think Castro is a world hero for doing so but- this would only lead some folks to say "Castro did this and that" but Castro wouldn't have had to do anything if the United Fruit Company wasn't so horrible.

      I guess I could mention William R. Hearst but picture the United Fruit Company in Mexico and being the largest landowner there.

      I guess I could talk about Tommy Hilfiger settling a class action suit for sweat shops in a US common wealth while textiles are belly up in my home town, the neighboring towns, the neighboring states- all the while Tommy Hilfiger's shirts sell for $150.

      I guess we could talk about Macy's and their sell Calvin Klein shirts for $52 made in Bangladesh but it's business as usual.

      I could talk about M16s made in the United States of my America that I and my family have fought for- and these M16s killing hundreds of thousands of people in East Timor by Indonesia so that Reebok and other companies could rape the people better.

      I could say so much but people want real evidence.

      This is some tongue in cheek black humor I guess. The "free" world (???) continues to turn a blind eye to suffering. This "free world" (???) wants to tun their eyes away from the FACT that they vote for one of SATAN'S helpers every time they vote. De Nile may float in Egypt, but more denial floats right here in the US and other western countries. Every president will bow to this SATAN. Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Sarah Crazy Woman Palin, "youpickfreak", etc.

      Meanwhile- republicans call me liberal. Liberals say I read too much "right wing" stuff. Denial is keeping Satan in the driver's seat.

      Christians have tried to use the Satanic right arm called "the right wing" for a long time. They have been licking Satan's feet (paws?). But everyone is in denial.

      You say you are not religious. I don't care a lick. I believe in a benevolent God. If this is not a "good" God- I will not serve. But God's message is to love our enemies. His law above laws is to "do unto others as you would have done unto you". Every religion has this law. It makes sense. But Muslims are killing Christians in Rhodesia. Christians have slaughtered MILLIONS! I can just cite one crazy convert in China for this demonstration. The fact is many, many religious people are not God's people at all! While many atheists are upholding God's greatest law! Love one another.

      But these right wing religious crazies have convinced many Christians that selfishness under Satan in the form of a false democracy is just. Meanwhile the democrats are always hopeful of that "electable" (great term huh) savior who will come along and save the world. But if you have enough money to buy one political party- why on earth would some lunatic rich person, who owns the world, settle for owning just one party?

      I'm sorry I've taken up so much space. I am a Vietnam Veteran and I fully appreciate this hub of truth! May God bless you whether you need it or not!

      For everyone else- return to your cabins. This is the Titanic! It's unsinkable! Relax! Everything is fine! Keep voting like you have been!
