Two more today?

God, no.

This government has blood on it's hands. Shame on it.

RIP Brothers in Arms - Yours is not to reason why, yours is just to ...etc etc
O may Thy soldiers faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints, who nobly fought of old,
And win with them the victor’s crown of gold, Alleluia,
The golden evening brightens in the west;
Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;
Sweet is the calm of paradise the blessed, Alleluia
