I was watching Question Time on the BBC the other night that was broadcast from Wootton Bassett a town who`s residents turn out and line the streets when an RAF plane lands bringing back not just bodies of soldiers but sons, daughters,dads, brothers.......................

I don`t personally know anyone involved in the conflicts of present or past and being born in1948 my dad had returned from WW2 thankfully alive never speaking of his years at war even into my adulthood but he would never ever buy anything Japanese made so i can only imagine.

Personally, and this is my view to which i am entitled so comment by all means but bear that in mind, i think dads war had more purpose it seemed clearer what was happening and what needed to be done to stop it. I listened to the politicians reasons for why our boys and girls are there but wasn`t convinced.

Perhaps we should just step back and defend our island from invaders use our soldiers to defend our sea and air ports, be a bit more inquisitive of the reasons of those that enter. We seem to have a good team routing out the bad apples already here.......oh i won`t go on as this video was meant to be a tribute to those fighting so far away from home but i got carried away to much time on my hands or maybe old age gives me time to think and reflect.

Play the video and listen to the words, no countries, no religion, living as one etc. All sounds great but would it work?

Anyway it`s dedicated to all the soldiers away from their loved ones.
