USA's victims of the Iraq War

I didn’t fight for Freedom
To live in Slavery!
We’ve lost but not forgotten
Those men of true Bravery.

I look around now and wonder
Why do we fight these Wars today?
The Shepherd it seems has sold his Soul
And led our flock astray.

Don’t blame now our brave Soldiers
Who still die on foreign shores,
Blame the Governments that sent them there
In this cruel and unjust War.

As the Rich reach out for more money
The poor bleed for their Black Gold
Families bereaved for their Loved Ones
Honour now the Brave and the Bold
