War pig

As soon as I saw this morning's Daily Mirror headline - 'Cam is ready for war', referring to our glorious leader's enthusiasm to allow the RAF to bomb ISIS targets in Syria - I immediately thought of a song lyric. 'Politicians hide themselves away/ They only started the war/ Why don't they go out to fight?/ They leave that up to the poor'. War Pigs by Black Sabbath, in case anyone doesn't recognise the reference. War, for several hundred years, and probably longer, has almost always been fought by the poor to maintain the power, privilege and, most notably, the wealth of societal 'elites'. As far as I'm concerned, this latest version is no different.

Love & best wishes to all
