GUEST,Joe_F War Mongering Songs (115* d) RE: War Mongering Songs 15 Jul 06


Dick Greenhaus: Well, yes, but the context is defensive. The preceding lines are: Oh, thus be it e'er when free men shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desolation. Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Likewise Die Wacht am Rhein. And the notorious Deutschland über Alles, if you actually read the words, turns out to be sentimental rather than imperialistic. Germany is above all in our hearts because of its wine, women, & song.

Fair's fair.
