I love my country but it wears a uniform

My wife pointed out the following astute anti-war song from our large combined music collection: Cuscutlan by the Australian group “Frente!” from “Marvin the Album”. Two of my favorite stanzas:

I love my country but it wears a uniform
It speaks with foreign guns
In the background you can almost hear
The sound of intervention
And I don't know when
Liberty fell...

...[We] Died for the kind of lasting peace
That pleases the world's police man
And Fatherland raped Motherhood
And told her it was for the global good
