The Lyrics

This is from the other side, an individual Insurgent's POV of the war in Afghanistan and their belief system. I believe in the good fight against terrorists and tyrants and those that misinterpret the Quran for personal gain... but God has richly blessed the Arabs/Muslims with oil and other resources which are exploited by their own leaders and the West. Most Muslims are decent people that want to serve God and view the US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan as Western Imperialism. This parody is not meant to be offensive to any US Vets or people that love democracy... but one cannot shove it down another's throat by force. This POV is of a Muslim that follows the Quran and believes he is fighting to save his nation and the ME.
I made it through the darkness
Somehow I made it through
Didn't know how close I was
To US Army troops

I felt beat, in defeat
I'd was mad, thought we were through
But Allah made me feel
Yeah, Allah made me feel
The Quran is true

An Insurgent
Killing the very first time
An Insurgent
Planting I.E.D.s
Forget landmines

Gonna give you all my RDX, GIs
Hummer approaching fast
Been saving it all for you
'Cause you won’t survive the blast!

Down the line, signal fine
Gunner strong, Allah make me bold
Explosion threw you out
KA-BOOM threw you out
Now you’re injured and cold (dead)

An Insurgent
Killing the very first time
An Insurgent
Planting I.E.D.s
Forget landmines

Allah, Allah, Akbar!!!

Down the line, signal fine
This victory is ours this time!
'Cause Allah made me feel
Yeah, Allah made me feel
Muslims have their pride

An Insurgent
Killing the very first time
An Insurgent
Planting I.E.D.s
Forget landmines

An Insurgent, Allah, Allah!
An Insurgent
Feels so good inside
When you occupy, and the bullets fly, and then you die

Woe, Woe, Woe, Woe, Woe
So, GI
This month is our victory
You lost sixty-five…

An unusual look at this conflict from the point of view of the other side. Theirs is a culture based on vengeance, and long memories. That must be taken into account when fighting them.

And Western Culture is nothign but mindless consumerism, capitalism, and western imperialism. Forget the Trans-Atlantic slave trade? Genocide of Native Americans? Gun-boat diplomacy? WW2 Japanese Internment? And the US passion for instant gratification and worship of money over God???
