Confronting Russia On Arms Sales To Syria

We can pose and we can posture,
we can get upset and mad;
but when it comes to selling weapons
there isn't one who isn't bad.

Our ships are why we let some kill Bahrainis
and our tear gas keeps Egyptians under control;
our planes have slaughtered Palestinians and Lebanese
and have kept the IDF on a roll.

Our supplies once helped Saddam use poison gas
to keep his rebels tame;
but now we say to Syria that
it can't do the same.

So what can we say to Russia
about the weapons it bestows?
For it's all about the money,
as our own history shows.
