I am scrapping this thread.

I listened to this agami and I do see how this song could be offensive even though I know it is not meant that way. Regardless, today is not the day to debate this. My deepest apologies to anyone offended - I didn't mean to. I just didn't understand how this song could be seen as political or offensive and now I do. Question answered. Didn't mean offense. Now I know.

Apologies.

Considering the times post-Dixie Chicks political fallout, a label passing on an Iraq War protest song doesn't sound out of sorts, no.

Bring our young soldiers back home, what are we fighting for? We all know this isn't our war.

Ya, certain elements would have had a field day with that. You could spin that into being anti-patriotic very quickly.

I was coming from where you are Bhawk (I think) in that I hear this as a song about war in general - war sucks, we can do better - but without getting in to it too much I can see how some of these lyrics - while coming from a good place, meaning well and intending to honor and protect soldiers - could also be hurtful.

There is a lot to debate here but this being Veterans Day I think it's best to just thank and honor all those who serve and have served.

Again, my apologies to any offended. Just to be clear, o thought this was a nice musical prayer to ask that our soldiers be brought home safe and didn't understand how it could be seen as political since it doesn't mention any particular conflict or offensive since ST clearly sings about protecting our children and bringing home our troops. Even the best intentions can be hurtful and I see that now. I know ST wishes the best for our troops and tried to express that here as an I.

Apologies.
