I haven't heard this track in a long time but it seems especially poignant being that it was spoken some ten years ago. Now here we are.

I took the liberty of adding some images from Ferguson and about Ferguson. Please no pile-ons, read the other replies before you decide to dive in and if someone has said something you disagree with don't be an asshole.
The War Against Us All
This war in Iraq isn't the end; it's the beginning of Wars to come all around the world at the whim of the Neo-Cons in the White House.
This is the Bush Doctrine come to life; War, war and more war!
War brought to you by the big corporate-masters who run the show.
This isn't just a War on Iraqis or Afghanis or Arabs, or even Muslims.
It is ultimately a War on us all!
That's because the billions and billions that are being spent on this War; the cost of tanks, rocketry, bullets and yes even salaries for the 125,000 plus troops, is money that will never be spent on; education, on healthcare, on the reconstruction of crumbling public housing or to train and place the millions of workers who have lost manufacturing jobs in the past three years alone.
The War in Iraq is in reality; a war against the nations' workers and the poor; who are getting less and less while the big Defense industries and making a killing – literally!
What's next Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela?
We've already seen the corporate media play megaphone to the White House, to build and promote a War based on lies.
War is utilized by the imperialists first and foremost, to crush internal enemies
We're seeing the truth of its insight when we see the sad state of American education, the rush of seniors to buy affordable medications from the Canadians because American drugs are just too expensive. The threat of privatization of Social Security and the wave of repression that comes with an increasing Militarized Police; this is a War on all of us.
And the struggle against War is really a struggle for a better life for the millions of folks who are in need here in this country!
The fight against the War is really to fight for your own interest
not the false interests of the Defense Industry
or the corporate media or the White House
Down with the Wars for empire!
From Death row this is Mumia Abu Jamal...
