Subject: RE: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday.
=== If you are seriously defnding this dispicable action then you are no better than her. ===

I have made no claim to be 'better than her', whatever that is supposed to mean, Silas. You have denounced the action as 'despicable' [note correct spelling please], to be contradicted by a chorus of better informed counter-opinion; & have now fallen back on constantly reiterated mouthing of anti-war platitudes. We all know that war is not nice, thanks ~~ especially those of us who have really lived thru it: I was in London thruout both blitzes in WWII, & was required to undergo the boredom, futility & worse [3 of my training platoon were killed in Korea or Cyprus, & a friend at college had one leg and an MC] of National Service if that is any interest to you. Your generation don't know you are born, & you clearly know little of what you gab, young man. But it [i.e. war]is one of those phenomena for which humanity is still seeking a better idea after countless ćons of finding none. I don't imagine that your generation will be much more sucessful.
