A Marine back from Iraq and Afghanistan has fired a musical rebuke at the Dixie Chicks for their anti-war hit, "Not Ready to Make Nice." Cpl. David Thibodeaux's "Not Ready to End the Fight" is hitting America's country dials—including some that shunned the Nashville trio's 2006 Grammy winner.
A fellow leatherneck wrote the response song with a friend in the music business; he tracked down the Louisiana native to lay it down after seeing photos of him armed with his six-string in Iraq. "I’ve seen so many good things happen in Iraq, and I don’t think it’s time for the war to end,” Thibodeaux says. "Anybody who doesn’t think there are terrorists out there should open their eyes."
