Eminem is a man who has the courage to stand up for his opinions, particularly when it has to do with President Bush’s war policy.
« Square Dance » offensively attacks Bush and puts a huge mirror in front of his hypocrisy:
« Never been the type to bend or budge The wrong button to push, No friend of Bush I’m the centerpiece, your the Maltese. I am a pittbull off his leash, All this peace talk can cease. »
Once described by Bush as « the biggest threat to kids since polio », Marshall has proven that his words are more than a salvation to the American youth which gets sacrificed for Bush’s useless Iraqi fights.
Somebody objected me once on a message board that the young Americans sent to war are voluntaries who are proud to « defend » their country.
First, Saddam Hussein wasn’t a real threat to the world. No chemical weapons have been found on his territory.
Bush’s policy is also fulfilled with strategically mistakes. He seems to consider the Iraqi war as a war opposing Christians and Muslims, Christians being the « good people » and Muslim « the evil ones ».
Bush seems to forget that not every Muslim is a terrorist and also that a lot of American citizens belong to the Muslim community and deserve respect as a religious community that has nothing to do with extremism and that even condemn it.
Also, I never really understood why Bush wanted most of the European countries to get involved with the conflict that opposed America to Iraq.
Through his stupid and stubborn policy, Bush endangers all of us. So many countries in this world, such as Indonesia have been victims of terrorist attacks since September the 11th.
Oh my God, how many 18 years old will have to die in Iraq till somebody stops Bush?
Voluntaries or brainwashed to become Bush’s puppets?
Those lines of Mosh summarize how much psychological pressures are put on young American citizens:
« No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil
No more psychological warfare, to trick us to thinking that we ain’t loyal
If we don’t serve our own country, we’re patronizing a hero
Look in his eyes its all lies
The stars and stripes, they’ve been swiped, washed out and wiped… »
Marshall recently expressed how much he was worried about his young brother Nate being forced to fight in Iraq:
« I don’t want to see my little brother get drafted – he just turned 18 »
American citizens, Eminem urges you to vote. Not for Kerry, as some people seem to imply it. But clearly against Bush:
« People think their votes don’t count, but people need to get out and vote.
“Whatever my decision is, I would like to see Bush out of office. »
