Hands Off Syria Pt3 By Marcel Cartier (@CartierMarcel)

The bal­ance of forces in the world today
the west claims they bomb­ing ISIS out the way
in truth it’s a pre­text, they want Dam­as­cus
an inde­pend­ent Syr­ia they’ll nev­er cap­ture

You bet­ter get your hands off ‘a Syr­ia
now for three and a half years I been tellin’ ya
and my pos­i­tion ain’t changed, it’s vin­dic­ated daily
when we lied to it’s easy to call me crazy
I said it then: Assad is on the hit list
of the west­ern powers for being a nation­al­ist
one who asser­ted inde­pend­ent stances
and was a base for the res­ist­ance axis
in staunch oppos­i­tion to the State of Israel
that’s why through a proxy war they unleash­ing hell
Plan A was to train up the FSA
but that was split up in sev­er­al dif­fer­ent ways
some al-Nus­ra, some Islam­ic State
some more prefer­able to some of the Gulf States
not to men­tion the role played by Erdogan
in let­ting 12,000 IS mil­it­ants storm (into Syr­ia)

Plan A, let the hav­oc reign every­where
with 150,000 lives not spared
not to men­tion the sheer bru­tal nature
of the fake Islam­ist sol­diers who trained up
wheth­er in Bahrain, Saudi or Qatar
you know those mon­arch­ies couldn’t really be more far
from an accept­able ver­sion of “demo­cracy”
it seems a little bit insane for them to lec­ture the
sec­u­lar, pro­gress­ive, quasi-social­ist
far from per­fect but a people’s centered gov­ern­ment
with so much sup­port it didn’t fall easy
the proxy war’s fail­ing so enter plan B
that was John Kerry show­ing You­Tube videos
of an alleged attack that used deadly chem­ic­als
used as a pre­text for aer­i­al attack
but the rul­ing-class united couldn’t get with that

On to Plan C, our allies and friends
sud­denly become our enemies instead
I guess Bagh­dadi and the Islam­ic State
out­lived their use­ful­ness so now they’ll meet another fate
there’s no desire to really fight ter­ror­ism
if there was they’d be join­ing in a coali­tion
not with mon­arch­ies, but Iran and Hezbol­lah
it’s merely trick­ery to start bomb­ing Syr­ia
