I wrote this song 30 years ago, shortly after the Gulf War began in 1991. I didn’t know at the time that another invasion of Iraq by America would occur in 2003, or that by 2021 we would be involved in 20 years of war in Afghanistan with no end in sight. Or maybe I did know it. I get no satisfaction from having correctly predicted America’s endless wars some 30 years ago. We need a revitalized anti-war/ peace movement in this country. We need it bad.
