Funny cause he really hated war
But why we went to war is what he really hated more
The soldier was criticizing what he saw as the evil intentions behind the war.
Not only was he against war, but he was against the unjustified reasons for violence in the first place. In light of the current U.S. foreign policy, and Lupe’s outspoken opinions, he is likely referring to the gov’t’s “war on terrorism” and their ambiguous reasons for entering Iraq (“weapons of mass destruction”) and Afghanistan (“9/11: ?).
