Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Make peace Iraq on this you should ponder,
or we shall stay there, like true war mongers.
We have the weapons to pound you all daily,
and if you're not careful you may all end up Israeli.

Why shoudn't they have control of the region,
the French say NO but command Foreign Legions.
You think Europeans are too meek and mild,
but if we sell then eighty cent gas, man they'll be war wild.

Once all your oil just lay pooled on the ground,
your camels would sometimes get stuck.
T'was merely a nusiance til we came around,
and showed you guys how to make a buck.

So... oh... give thanks to heaven, and be truly grateful,
stop killing women and being so hateful.
Here's the score, how come there's Arab poor?
It sounds like an OPEC scam to me,
be glad we don't take all your oil and flee.

Proof that anyone who calls our current war a war for oil is a liar/idiot/both: if it were a war for oil, we would do just as the man says: line up our troops and ordinance along all the roads to the oil wells (mostly in the Kurdish areas), and let the rest of Iraq (mostly the Sunni and Shiite parts) go up in flames and get annexed to Iran. Then, when all the oil was safely aboard the oil tankers with all of them encircled with military escorts, we'd gather up all the men and gear, pull up the anchors, and leave the Kurds to slaughter their neighbors or be slaughtered by them as well. Since this is not at all what we are actually doing, any truthful, rational person must consider the possibility that we really are over there for something besides the possibility of securing a relatively modest (10% of the world's supplies) oil bonus for ourselves.

Nice rant, non war-monger. Who's the idiot who can't see this song slams the entire Arab world and our European allies! Since you're so gung ho, why don't you enlist.? I've already done my tour... CHUMP.

Cut the lies, Bill. As with all you phony solider types of the left, I know you have not been on any tour unless it was as a journalist... for Al-Jazeera. You are a fraud and a traitor and if you ever had been in the military, they would have stood your cowardly carcass up and shot you for a deserter. (That is how I know you are lying: the overwhelming majority of troops support this war and know that it is going well.) As for this song, it slams a bunch of murderous rapacious wife-beating terrorist sympathizers and their Eurotrash buddies in the UN, in other words, all your best friends. Serves you right, scum!

blah-blah-blah... you never did a tour of duty in your life. i'd gladly compare my DD-214 to yours any day of the week, except we all know you don't have one. what's so hard about understanding what this parody is about??? maybe you should have stayed in school past the 5th grade. either way, i'm done responding to you. have a nice time ranting your way through life from the safe, demented, world, of your computer. a place where you can be all that you can't be.

". . . and know that it is going well" - Even George Dum-ba-ya Bush knows that the war is not going well. It was a mistake to get in it and it's still a mistake now. Stop the lies, stop the killing, stop the unjust war.
