War is Over

Recommended Posts

Lennon

So this is Christmas

And what have you done

Another year over

And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas

I hope you have fun

The near and the dear one

The old and the young

A very merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let's hope it's a good one

Without any fear

And so this is Christmas

For weak and for strong

For rich and the poor ones

The world is so wrong

And so happy Christmas

For black and for white

For yellow and red ones

Let's stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let's hope it's a good one

Without any fear

And so this is Christmas

And what have we done

Another year over

And a new one just begun

And so happy Christmas

We hope you have fun

The near and the dear one

The old and the young

A very merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let's hope it's a good one

Without any fear

War is over

If you want it

War is over

Now...

Numero uno: Nicaragua and the upcoming CIA/CONTRA/SFLN clash following the downfall of Somoza and the disruption of the drug trade with Managua as a principal distribution node pre-revolution, El Salvador FMNL (Romero), Guatemala, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Honduras, Venezuela, Argentina...
