Guns N' Roses "Civil War" lyrics

Look at your young men fighting
Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they've always done before...

I moved to Iowa City in August 1990. The Kuwait invasion was that week. By coincidence, this song was also released. Even though it wasn't directly about Gulf War I, the coincidence of time was stunning. It was also the one time Axl and company directed their considerable anger at a deserving target.

I've been thinking of this song this week.
