The Best War

March 4, 2009 3:02 PM

Believe it or not, this song was not written about the Iraq war. In fact, it was a reaction to something I was sensing in the air back before the first Gulf War, circa 1990. I changed the wording slightly to reflect the times, but the song still works beautifully. The recording is from my new collection 2 O's, 2 E's (a reference to how I spell my last name). You can download the entire album and lots more stuff at

Wow. This is going to TOTALLY sound like American Idol: Man, I love your voice and you really have something going on, but PLEASE don't do any more war songs!

(I've been stewing up a whole rant, but this isn't the place for it. Yea, I'm a vet, and we don't need to hear any more of THAT bullshit.)

I like your music though!

Okay, I'll take that as a compliment, I guess.

Please listen to the lyrics more carefully though, as the song is in no way denigrating the sacrifice of veterans. They serve nobly. My problem is when they are forced to serve not for the sake of our nation's safety, but for political gain.
