From a retired officer./ I am reminded of the sacrifices of my men and my buddiesWhose graves dot the Natl. cemetery.
They answered freedom’s callAnd died defending a failed policy./ I am still driven to distraction By the false courage of neoconservativesWho are very brave with the bloodOf OTHER people’s sons and daughters./ We must not send our youth into combat againWithout a clear mission defending American interests,/
Without the full backing of our people,
And without a clear exit strategy for victory.//
We have not met any of these requirements
