Yes. Read Wilfred Owen's poem, Dulce et Decorum Est. Google it. It's not in Latin, very readable. About WWI. As the niece of a WWII Purple Heart, I am not a pacifist. But this song, and the poem, and many Irish songs and poems, eloquently express the experience.

Takes me back to 1969, the year I graduated. Not all of the boys in my class came home and the ones that did were so damaged. We never ever learn!

"Actually, Vietnam was not even a war, it was a "conflict" We never declared war on Vietnam. We never even fought it like a war We played games with them, just like we've been doing in the Middle East for more than 15 years.

We lost the conflict because we did not pursue it. We did not provide proper equipment for our service personnel. Ammo like grenades went back to WWII, maybe even earlier. Some ammo blew up on our people when they tried to use it. We were playing "footsies" with the

The Vietnam war, was the first war America lost and communist spread, like the domino theory implying that president Eisenhower was completely right. This song does a great job at portraying the tragedy and blood spill over a win, that we had no way to win.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually work
