"The Spice Must Flow" as written by Brock Patrick Walsh and Mark Goldenberg....
"Are there guns to deal with genocide, expatriation? Are there arms to hold the exodus? We have been moved, we have been parcel posted, first by water then by air, to be removed then dumped into the inner-city ghettos."
- Anonymous

"But the long line of military dictators seemed to offer no real change. The only change came from America as we increased our troop commitments in support of governments which were singularly corrupt, inept, and without popular support. All the while the people read our leaflets. Now they languish under our bombs, and consider us the real enemy. The move sadly and apathetically as we herd them off the land of their fathers. They know they must move on or be destroyed by our bombs."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I look at it this way: My part in this thing may well have been something that the US government might be looking at somewhat with a guilt complex, and the less said about it by the United States government the better."
- Paul Tibbets

That nation's capital doors are wide open.
This nation's capital steps have been closed.
That nation's capital current is bleeding.
Re-route that currency right back home.
Why don't you tell me again about "making the world safe for democracy"?
Why don't you tell me again about "manifest destiny"?
What's "destiny" today?

"What does it mean to be a colony? It means that the wealth of the island, its resources, and the labor of its people are brought back to the United States, to the profit of big corporations. The United States imposes its own language, a tourist culture of prostitution, big hotels, gambling, military bases, the destruction of agriculture which force people off the land."
- Bernardine Dohrn

"By tomorrow it well be too late. From this day forward, my people will crouch and conspire and plot and plan for the inevitable day when your cities lie buried under rubble, when the sea is a dead sea, and the land is a wasteland, out of which I will lead my people from their captivity, and that day is upon you now!"
- Caesar from Planet of the Apes
