This Is War

This is War,

They said as they dropped drones onto villages and killed grandma who was picking vegetables from her garden,

This is War,

They said as they put families into concentration camps based on the slant of their eyes,

This is War,

They said as they released cancerous Agent Orange onto children playing outside,

This is War,

They said as they placed sanctions which killed over half a million people,

This is War,

They said as they raped our women and left them with orphans,

This is War seems to be an excuse for breaking international laws that protect civilians.

This is War is what they say when they want to use the ends to justify THEIR means.

This is not War, This is bloody colonization and imperialism.
