    Listen to the song "Poppy" by The Beautiful South:

    [align=center]The Beautiful South - Poppy

    'I fought hard in the Second World War'
    You hear them shout
    No good bragging about the Afrika Korps
    It was Beadle's About

    They dressed you up and took you off to World War One
    Armed you and surrounded you with wire
    Sat in stinking mud you sung your stupid songs
    And waited till they told you when to fire

    Cause the rulers always laugh
    At a video bloodbath
    Nothing makes them laugh
    Like a video bloodbath

    From the First World War to the Yom-Kippur
    It was Beadle's About
    The bayonets slice, the rockets roar
    And he jumps out

    Fond memories of the bloody bridge you failed to hold
    Many of your buddies killed or maimed
    You would've shot at rabbits if that's what you'd been told
    Till the General said 'I'm sorry you've been framed'

    Cause the rulers always laugh
    At a video bloodbath
    And nothing gets a laugh
    Like a video bloodbath

    Chorus:
    Keep those entries coming
    Leave those cameras running
    Keep those entrails coming
    Leave those soldiers gunning
    Because you're sure to get a laugh
    With a video bloodbath
    Nothing gets a laugh
    Like a video bloodbath

    Here's a wacky video we got last week
    A bomb catches Arthur unawares
    He's lost both his arms and he can't see or speak
    But thank you for the memory you shared

    Cause the rulers always laugh
    At a video bloodbath
    And nothing gets a laugh
    Like a video bloodbath

    Chorus[/align]

    :eek:

    When i was in Iraq I took loads of videos. I watch them every now and again to remind myself how lucky I am to be here. Not to laugh at, not to share as a joke. No offence is meant by these videos and many people see tham as part of the healing process after high intesity deployments. To judge a man walk a mile in his shoes and all that.
