Wars are like football matches one side against the other .
There are no points scored when your team are running for cover .
So you are told to go in hard and let them know youíre there .
Bring them down, hit the target then wait for the final call .
When the game is over the result of war is nil all .
Itís a penalty shoot out on the fields of destruction .
The result is questioned even when the game has been won .
Two a side an you need balls to boot if youíre on your own .
Some think theyíre on the ball but itís a game they play alone .
People like to play on both sides and say you can trust us .
There are no referees, no rules and there is no justice .
Around the world we stand united ready to defend
Its really how we play the game that matters in the end .

Yes, and it should be done with class. Brilliant and thoughtful. Love it.
