What’s so civil about war, anyway?
“What we’ve got here is…failure to communicate.” The chart topping Guns N’ Roses hit single, ‘Civil War’ starts with the recording sample of Strother Martin’s speech and goes about questioning every intention and aspect of a war. As the 150th anniversary of Civil war is marked and remembered in America, the question still remains unanswered, ‘When will America recall its troops from Iraq and Afghanistan?’
Some people may support war, just to defend their gullible mindset, which was projected to them by the likes of Bush government. The supporters of war are either oppurtunitists or slaves to their fears. It is time that the unnecessary war carried by the American military comes to an end.
If you find rockstars to be of double standards, talking about the world issues and living a luxurious life, then you got to open your mind to hear and understand the artistic expression of these musical geniuses. World peace may look like an unfulfilled wish for humanity but in the recent times we have seen the revolution by people who brought the real ‘Change’ as opposed to the presidential promises of ‘Change’.
As the song goes-
“My hands are tied
For all I’ve seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights
‘Cause all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars”
With all the human rights flouted, it is time that America brings a closure to its outsourced Civil War.
