    "One" - War's forgotten casualties

    Stardate Unknown

    This video represents several things to me. First, it was the beginning of the end for Metallica... perhaps not that album, but the band that would never "sell out", sold out right after releasing this.

    Of course, the video is really good, and makes me think that often, the casualties of war and conflict that are rarely mentioned are the casualties that do not die. For every soldier that dies keeping the peace, or fighting terrorists, or opposing an occupation, there are others, like the character in the video, who are maimed and scarred forever. Some are much luckier, and may only lose an arm, or a hand. Some lose their sight, or hearing... and some, much much worse than death.

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
