GeorgeH Peace Day - Fife August 12th 2001 (10) RE: Peace Day - Fife August 12th 2001 19 Jul 01


The Oyster Band's "Six Grey Men" is one of those about Hiroshima . .

(I once had to point this out to a guy who was asking for the words, for his Scouts sing-song. Sadly he decided that perhaps it wasn't quite what he was looking for after all.)

I'm not sure what Mary is concerned about . . Like Jock Morris, I can't think of any anti-war songs which attack the poor sods who have to actually fight in them . . Not forgetting that some of the strongest opponents/critics of Vietnam were "vets".

Of course these days the US has refined war to the point where none of their forces have to fight in them - that way they can continue indiscriminate slaughter without upsetting their TV viewers at home.
