Basic training, trained for torture
Take no prisoners, and I just caught ya
Addicted to murder, send more bodybags
They can't identify em, leave the nametags
I get a rush when I see blood, dead bodies on the floor

Meaning

Rakim believes that all the killing is needless and points out the huge human loss on the side of the Iraqis, a fact that is typically overlooked due to the rather successful nature of the Gulf War, as few Americans were lost.
