Dulce et Decorum est [May. 1st, 2004|09:25 am]
Tony Grist
Every time we go to war we have to be reminded- as it were from scratch- that war is hell. Why is this? When is the penny going to drop? We read Wilfred Owen in school. We've seen Full Metal Jacket. What excuses do we have?

This morning the Daily Mirror carried a picture on its front page of a British soldier pissing on a hooded Iraqi prisoner.

Because fighting & surviving a war must be the biggest adrenalin trip there is. Why do we go on roller-coasters that look - and at times are - dangerous.

War may be hell - but very few people go out of their way to avoid hell.

Some Civil War General, Lee I believe, said "it is a good thing that war is so terrible, lest we become too fond of it."
