The Young British (and American Soldier) on Afghanistan's Plains

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Soldier ~ of ~ the Queen!

A poem by Rudyard Kipling,

Churchill as brutal mass murderer

As David Irving reports in his book: "Apocalypse 1945 - The Destruction of Dresden", Winston Churchill, then the Prime Minister of Britain, Churchill had phoned Sir Archibald Sinclair, his secretary of state for air, to inquire what proposals Bomber Command had, as he put it, for 'basting the Germans in their retreat from Breslau' ( To baste normally means either to moisten meat with drippings, butter, etc., while cooking, or 'to beat with a stick, thrash, cudgel'). Of course, there was no military retreat from Breslau, and the 'retreat' from Breslau was entirely an evacuation of non-combatants. At the time, the London newspapers were full of accounts of the harrowing scenes of German refugees streaming through various cities, and women and children were actually crowding between the buffers of railway coaches and wagons despite the bitter cold.
