Saving Iraq From the Iraqis

Nothing to do with divorce but as the Government announced the end to UK combat operations in Iraq on Thursday I dug out this video set to Tom Paxton's song "George W. Told The Nation." Tom has written political and "short shelf life" songs for years. (BTW I see from Tom's website it's Pete Seeger's 90th birthday today!) This song, about the surge in the Iraq war, was a rewrite of his 1965 song entitled "Lyndon Johnson Told The Nation", about the escalation of the war in Vietnam.
