(PNS reporting from MEXICO CITY) French invaders fighting indigenous militias in the state of Puebla are using poison gas, according to situation reports circulating here in the capital.
If the reports can be substantiated, it marks a dangerous escalation in the hostilities, and would mean Napoleon III’s troops have “crossed a red line” set by the Lincoln Administration in Washington.
“Oh simon, it was gas,” said one eyewitness rushed from the front by the cavalry. “French General Pepe Le Pew knows he is losing the la guerra and he is desperate. We think it is the deadly gas de brie, which these queseros love.”
In her new music video Borders, Brit rapper M.I.A. (Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam) says “No More Deportations” — #Not1MoreDeportation –– for the refugees.
The people who count things and make lists say there are over three dozen wars going on right now. Some “experts” insist this is inevitable, but others offer a different vision. One opposing point of view comes from a dead dude we know as Isaiah:
Today we observe Veterans Day, AKA Armistice Day, which marks the end of World War I.
Dulce et Decorum est is a poem written by poet Wilfred Owen in 1917, during the War, and published posthumously in 1920. Owen’s poem is known for its horrific description of chemical warfare and condemnation of war.
The Masters of War are not supposed to use poison gas any more (attention, Bashar Al-Assad) but drone strikes aren’t much fun either.
POCHO dedicates this poem to all our veterans in gratitude for their service and sacrifice and with the hope no child will see war again.
Starting and fighting a new war is hard AND expensive, and you know Uncle Sam is not exactly flush with cash right now. Can you please join a Kickstarter campaign to help President Obama start World War III?
