Ken couldn't really hate them at all
They were just doin their job and
He wasn't gonna make any problems

from Fort Minor – Kenji Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

During the fear and paranoia of war we often disregard individual human rights in favor of “national security”. Ken realized that many of the soldiers were likely conscripted and only following orders, so he couldn’t take it out on them. If he argued and fought back, he would have only made it worse for himself and his family.
