Winning The Peace
Why Iraquis should trust us, does anyone know?
We say we brought liberation
They'll remember we dealt them a mighty big blow
When we bomb damaged much of their nation
Missiles and mortars while ousting Hussein
Also killed innocent folk
Bombing Hussein, put end to his reign
But how will we wear the peace cloak?
Feeding the masses and bringing them hope
We think is the right direction
But they may not want us to interlope
So may resort to a hate insurrection
Mid-east and west, worlds so very asunder
Conflictive cultures won't blend
'Shock and awe' historical blunder
Causing more hate with no end
We've won the war with missiles and mortar
But, where do we go from here?
We can win the peace, if we do what we ought-a
But, what we should do isn't clear
