Post the lyrics to an anti-war song.

Waist Deep in the Big Muddy -- Pete Seeger )

This song was written about Vietnam, but it applies to Iraq completely. It was also part of a fight in another war: CBS executives originally censored it when Seeger performed it as part of a medley on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. The Smothers took their case to the press, and in the end, Seeger performed the song on the show. I can't imagine a network backing down like that these days, unfortunately.
