Today is the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. I wrote and recorded this song yesterday. We all do what we can to make a difference in the world. I write songs. Please share with like minded people. Thank you.

Ten long years in Afghanistan
Ten long years, we've fought the Taliban
Ten long years, how many will it take?
How much blood and treasure – will we finally waste?

And I don't give a damn about the Taliban
And I wouldnt give a dime to that crooked old Karzai
And I don't want to hear Cheney's sorry pack of lies
About the "war on terror" making torture justified...

Ten long years, money thrown away
Racking up a debt -our kids will have to pay
Time to shut it down, just bring the soldiers home
And water board old Cheney, -Ask him what he knows

'Cause Cheney's flabby ass is never on the line
He's a weak old coward, the profiteering kind
Water board old Cheney, ask him what he knows
About who's getting rich, where war profits go.

And I don't give a damn about the Taliban
And I wouldn't give a dime to that crooked old Karzai
And I don't want to hear Cheney's sorry pack of lies..
About the "War on Terror" making torture justified.
