This week – [i am trying to be current for a change] was the 100th anniversary of Passchendaele.a village in Belgium.
If reporters and civil servants cannot understand the difference between wholesale slaughter and bravery then clearly there are still some very screwed up people who have yet to understand. But i suppose as everybody got shot even for not being brave enough* to walk in front of machine gun (my blog) then this event of managed mass murder is a hard event to frame but bravery is not a word i would associate with it.
If i use this ‘logic’ then I guess machine guns and artillery weapons are also due for medals for bravery.
You may have seen this (my blog) if you have no idea of the thing.
I have been to the menin gate and it is a sobering site mostly on account of it’s size.
