The Neocon National Anthem

DIGG THIS

Please note: this is a parody.

sung to the tune of "Ballad of the Green Berets," by SSG Barry Sadler, USA

Laptop warriors from the sky Fearless men who send others to die Men whose every word's a lie The brave men of the A.E.I.

American flags upon their lapel These are men with wars to sell One hundred ways to tell a lie Senior Fellows at the A.E.I.

Trained to lie, by Leo Strauss Trained to lobby Senate and House In Iraq some men today will die Not one of them from the A.E.I.

American flags upon their lapel These are men with wars to sell One hundred ways to tell a lie Senior Fellows at the A.E.I.

Back at home a martini waits And so he packs his attaché case He has lied and sold the surge In his heart this primal urge

Put an American flag on my son’s lapel Give him wars that he can sell But don't let him go where he could die Have him join the A.E.I.
