"Stop Sniffin' That Smokin' Gun"
As the U.S.A. led coalition bombs yet another oil-rich country led by a Muslim dictator, is it time yet to consider whether we should should stop sniffin' that smokin' gun? Or is this just Freedom v. 2011?
Here's just another in a long line of Neil Young prophecies, 1987's "Mideast Vacation" captured at the zeigeist of 1980's paranoia.
From concert at the Bridge School Benefit with Crazy Horse on Oct. 10, 2001. This marked Neil Young's first post 9-11 performance (note NYFD hat) at the zeigeist of 2000's paranoia.

But I never did find him
And the C.I.A. said Son,
You'll never be a hero
......Your flyin' days are done
It's time for you to go home now
Stop sniffin' that smokin' gun."
~~Neil Young, "Mideast Vacation, 1987
Note the blowback from the last time we did this...
ps - or -- as Billy Bragg would say -- it's all about the price of oil...
pss - and speaking of Nobel Peace Prize winners...
