As so many politicians and pundits try to whip up enthusiasm for attacking Iran, we’d be wise to recall the ravages of war on those who actually have to fight and bleed.

I’ve long enjoyed the Old Crow Medicine Show song, “Big Time in the Jungle.” I came across this YouTube video that makes its antiwar message far more potent.

Hopefully the next decade will not see piercing folk songs about the plight of American soldiers fighting in Iran’s Zagros or Elburz Mountains or cutting their way from the Caspian Sea to Strait of Hormuz.

Old Crow Medicine Show also has a powerful rendition of the song, “Ruby Ridge.”
