Where is Private Eric Ortiz?

When will we learn - war only profits profiteers 

He may be one of the 4,000 who did not make it back
Except in a coffin.

Over 300,000 Iraqis have died un-casual causalities

I have an old friend in Iraq
From time to time
I wonder if he made it back
I want to email his wife
But I am afraid of the facts
That he may be one of the 4,000 who did not make it back
Except in a coffin
American flag draped & wrapped
Dying for a lie
Forced into combat
Americans quickly forget the facts
That invasion of Iraqi was an illegal act
No weapons of mass destruction were found
On Iraqi grounds
But we still fill their country with depleted uranium rounds
Rock launcher sounds
The U.S. terrorize their country with our brought on instability
It’s a civil war with no civility
America kills their leaders who use to work for the CIA criminally
To cause fragility in world oil markets is the wars reality
Over 300,000 Iraqis have died un-casual causalities
Dixieland forgets about our soldiers and Iraqi’s
The news wants them to think about mortgages and the floundering economy
Not allowed to film flag draped coffins coming in from over seas
Ted Koppel on night Line forced to resign
for showing the faces of soldiers who died from stepping on home made land mines ambushed by roof top snipers
In the firing lines
I wonder about Eric
Got caught up in the propaganda of the politics
Blinded by the rhetoric
Decided to go for it
A war - the news media finds a way to ignore it
When all is said and done
No war can be won
Too many dying for the two percent upper echelon
Calculate the loss of a soul
Isn’t worth its price in black gold
