Re: Orla Guerin intones sepulchrally: "A reminder of how all this began...."
I remember seeing and hearing John Lennon on the BBC 'ranting' in a righteous way about the horrors of the war in Biafra/Nigeria, which the Labour Government supported in the late 60's and the ghastly, genocidal, bombing of North Vietnam. Golly, how angry and disgusted he was by those terrible acts of barbarism aimed at defenceless civilians slaughtered in the tens of thousands.
This one example shows, I think, how times have changed, for the worse, over the last fifty years. Sometimes I catch myself wondering if it was all just something I imagined. Imagine.
