War

War hell on earth, fire in the skies, rockets bombs, and bullets.
Freedom is on the line and souls get free to roam the skies of heaven or get tortured in the flames of hell.
Democracy and a free world, blood guts, and glory for freedom that isn’t free. Souls lost for a nation under God. 
We live free while others die.

Casualties, of war, there is no innocence war is hell and all who are involved have a job to either fight and survive, or to do is die.  
War the hell on earth.
The machine of death.
The action to make peace.
Till there is no war.
Some gave most the rest gave all.
Choppers, tanks, Hum v’s, jeeps, and jets race through nations bombing, shooting with engines roaring killing anything standing still or moving.
Death destruction the smell of burning bodies and the ground soaked in blood. 
Angles up above shedding tears of pain. 
From the soldiers keeping heaven and hell packed with fresh souls of the falling.
War is hell, but communism is worse in a Nation that is run by freedom and the constitution of bill of rights on which America was built on. 
We live, we die some with honor and a will to defend our rights.
And others just live to take advantage of what America was built for.
That’s why there is war. 
America is hated by most
And was become divided, those who understand the concept of war and those who oppose war.
Liberals, democrats, and socialist makes the word freedom mean nothing.
Yet those same assholes are the first to hide behind the 1st amendment right of freedom of speech and protest.
In fact they start wars inside the country that was once united by people, but now has become divided by acts of selfishness by letting freedom offend their agendas.
Which in fact will start a civil war. 
War is the hell on earth.
A revolution is on a rise.
A new birth of America is upon the people. 
Will be a new world, or the end of all things?
It’s enough thought to base a movie on when there is nothing left and all hope is lost and the Earth becomes an empty space. 
The moon will have no face.
Human race will end up erasing itself 
Once the last world war is won by whichever side wins first.
War.
