The Masters of War

I first heard Bob Dylan's 1963 song 'Masters of War' as a kid. It is as powerful today as it was then - 54 years later and nothing has changed. We still go to war for 'money' and 'power'...covering it up with a blanket of 'humanitarianism'. It's a disgrace. 

The version on the link below is 'live', with pictures from Vietnam. The lyrics can be found in the link to Dylan's official website:
