Civil War Stamp by Kezzi-Rose Civil War Stamp by Kezzi-Rose

"What's so civil about war, anyway?"


Poignant words from the epic song that is Civil War by Guns 'N' Roses - click here to listen.

Note: Of course I know the real meaning of 'civil war!'. This stamp and the quote itself pick up on the ironic pun of the phrase.

Add it to your page! Just copy the Thumb Code (found under 'Details' down the right-hand side) and paste it into your Journal, ID Description, Custom Module, etc. You don't have to be subscribed. Thanks to everyone who shares it! :la:

Agreed. Lao Tzu opposes war and I'm right with him.

while i don't support real war, if all the military strategists just went and played Age of Empires or Empire Earth over their disagreements, we'd save so much money and lives with military funding.

And they'd still see their war.

This is so true, I'll never understand why people make war, violence is not really a good way to fix issues. Love this stamp btw ! <3

War never seems to solve anything, surely the governments of the world could find a better solution to a dispute than killing people? When I was little, I genuinely thought that a civil war was leaders of the two sides sitting down and talking things through over a nice cup of tea. If only. :no:

Seriously why are people so proud of being at war? All it does is take away lives that didn't deserve it, no matter how nasty they were.

As said probably a million times before in response to peoples' smart comments, these are song lyrics which carry a subjective message and a play on the word.

Eliminate the other guy.

The problem is solved.

You give a new problem to his family.

But life is about dying?

We are all going to die anyways.

War is just not human.

But it turned into an easy way to "solve" things.

And just a quote from another song becuz its about war and i like turtlez and doesnt care:
"Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed, Spain was destroyed.
All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours?
How much longer do you really think your own country will last?
Forever?"

And a bit further along the line:
"Carry on, don't mind me
All I gave was everything
And yet you ask me for more
Fought your fight
Bought your lies
In return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?

A folded flag
A purple heart
A family all but torn apart"

Its "survivor guilt" by Rise Against, i love this song, because it actually got some points in it.

Anyway, love "civil war" too.


HatMan out!

There's no such thing as a "British accent" (sorry, this really riles us) - Britain is made up of three countries (England, Wales and Scotland), each with very distinct accents or even their own separate languages, like Welsh and Gaelic - and even within England (which is the country I'm from) there are hundreds of different accents. I wouldn't expect you to have known that before, but now you do! :') The accent you're probably thinking of is the typical kind of middle-class Londoner accent that's often portrayed in America, but most of us don't sound anything like that.

I couldn't agree more. Other than the literal meaning of the term 'Civil War', there's nothing CIVIL about it. It's just a pointless wate of lives. And the Civil War we had here in America, back in the 1800s, that was just... asinine. The South suceeded because they thought Lincoln would take slavery away, after he already said he WOULDN'T, and that triggered the war, and millions died. For no reason, other than the fact that adults can't help but act like 2-year-olds when they don't get EXACTLY what they want, exactly WHEN they want it. War (in most cases) is pointless. Old men and women start wars (and I'm quoting a friend here), and expect young men and women to fight it for them.
