BUT I AM STILL
just a little outraged.
An event is coming up soon that deserves nationwide publicity in America and unrelenting questions in the highest places—
—neither of which it will get. Instead all the usual public memorial displays will be attended on due dates by weepy-eyed politicians, wreaths will be laid, bugles blown, drums sounded and salutes fired—for others.
You don’t sing for unsung heroes.
Not if someone in Washington, now retired, may be a bit embarrassed.
AMERICA HONOURS ITS FIGHTING MEN
we are told. Loudly. Often. The “No man left behind!” platitude is bellowed, as if the word ‘hypocrisy’ has lost all meaning.
If you can judge people by what they do, rather than by what they claim — then it is true: hypocrisy has no meaning. Black is white, hot is cold and heroes are justly honoured. Yeah, right.
IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED
they’ve put together a Dvd. I haven’t seen it and have no desire to stir muddy waters—where politicians are concerned I prefer to let sleeping pigs wallow.
As for heroes? They get what they deserve, no?
