Iraks olja - Everybody knows


Alan Greenspan:

"I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: The Iraq war is largely about oil"

(Ur Greenspans memoarer, The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a new World, sidan 463)


Leonard Cohen:

Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied

Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old black joes still pickin cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the plague is coming
Everybody knows that its moving fast

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows
