BORN IN THE USA


Das consequências da política ideológica da Administração G.W.Bush,a mais grave pode ser um novo "sindroma do Vietnam" com um espírito de derrotismo e pacifismo militantes instalado na "grande potência"ocidental,transformada num "tigre de papel".Com os "gatos gordos" e domesticados europeus,será caso para perguntar quem nos vai defender?
Ao menos a guerra do Vietnam tinha algum sentido no quadro da Guerra Fria e de defender o governo anti-comunista e aliado de Saigão e o Vietnam do Sul.E a oposição à guerra gerou uma música e uma poesia também com algum sentido e qualidade.Como este poema musicado de Bruce Springsteen:


Born In The Usa

Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering upBorn in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Got in a little hometown jam so they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land to go and kill the yellow man
Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man says "son if it was up to me"
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said "son don't you understand now"
Had a brother at Khe Sahn fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there he's all gone
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now
Down in the shadow of penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go
Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
I'm a long gone daddy in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
I'm a cool rocking daddy in the U.S.A.
