Battle Hymn

The samples here came from a PBS documentary about the battle of Iwo Jima in World War 2. The accompanying photo is "Spanish Loyalist at the Instant of Death" taken by Robert Capa during the Spanish Civil war. Two different wars, but really they're all the same--stupid, power-mad scum like George Bush and Francisco Franco start them and ordinary people fight and suffer in them. Maybe someday the human race will evolve beyond this, but probably not. Recorded ca. 1994.

i went to a talk given about that photo and a convincing case was made saying it was a fake or rather a set up.
