Violence in Iraq, so they're shipping off our relatives
My cousin died in combat, his momma OD'd off sedatives
During the Iraq war plenty of soldiers were going overseas to die, for fairly questionable and somewhat unknown reasons. First was weapons of mass destruction, then to get rid of Saddam Hussein, then a lot of people thought it was overlaying to just the US fighting for oil reserves, and even a former 4 star general said America had a plan to take over the middle east within 5 years prior to 9/11.
What this means is that he is directly affected by all these deaths in his family for what seems to be no real justifiable objectives.
