I'd have to say yes to that.
I definitely think "US Forces" would be a sensitive song to play right now
considering what's going on in the world.  The US is in an unprecedented
situation right now, and even some people who have always been anti-war are
rallying behind the current bombings.  I've noticed a marked dissolution of
political boundaries.  Bush is currently enjoying a 92% popularity rating --
the highest of any US president in polling history.  Absolutely
I would guess MO is concerned about offending people and basically just
bringing a tense atmosphere to what should be a fun show.
--Now watch, they'll start playing it and prove me wrong!!

I'm very envious of all those who are catching the Oils gigs in USA .
More photos please !

I've seen the set lists , and I've noticed they are not playing US
Forces .

Could the song be too "politically sensitive" , considering the current
events  ?
