An Iraq war veteran has been arrested and charged with threatening to kill his officers after recording a violent rap protest song and sending it to the Pentagon.
Marc Hall, a junior member of an infantry unit, wrote the song in protest at the US army's unpopular policy of involuntarily extending soldiers' service and forcing them to return to Iraq or Afghanistan.
I heard this song a lot when I was a schoolkid in the 60s/70s. I've even sang it a few times. It helped me to vent frustration from "authorities." If schoolkids were to sing this song these days the government would send out the SWAT team.
