War: the ultimate reality show

So, the tightrope becomes ever tauter
That suspends your brave son or your daughter.
They believe in the cause
But their deaths should give pause:
Are we leading our lambs to the slaughter?

War hits Ohio hard
Thousands share grief, pride
Brian Albrecht, The Plain Dealer, 8/9/05

LS, you rock!

Yours reminds me of this little ditty from my generation...

"And its one, two, three
What are we fightin' for?
Don't know and I don't give a damn
Next stop is Viet Nam..."

Country Joe and the Fish - We used to sing that one in Basic Training, Pattie.

Thanks for the flashback,

Glad I could share my wayback machine!

Viet Nam was an ugly era, and didn't teach us a thing, I fear...
