For Veterans Day: Back in the Days of Shock & Awe

One of the great songs of the Iraq war era, from Neil Young.

Thousands of bodies in the ground
Brought home in boxes to a trumpet's sound
No one sees them coming home that way
Thousands buried in the ground

Thousands of children scarred for life
Millions of tears for a soldier's wife
Both sides are losing now
Heaven takes them in
Thousands of children scarred for life


Shock And Awe

There is *nothing* good about war.

People are terrorized, harmed, injured, tortured, slaughtered.

There is nothing good about war.
