He’s five foot-two, and he’s six feet-four, He fights with missiles and with spears. He’s all of thirty-one, and he’s only seventeen, Been a soldier for a thousand years. He’a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain, A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew. And he knows he shouldn’t kill, And he knows he always will, Kill you for me my friend and me for you. And he’s fighting for Canada, He’s fighting for France, He’s fighting for the USA, And he’s fighting for the Russians, And he’s fighting for Japan, And he thinks we’ll put an end to war this way. And he’s fighting for Democracy, He’s fighting for the Reds, He says it’s for the peace of all. He’s the one who must decide, Who’s to live and who’s to die, And he never sees the writing on the wall. But without him, How would Hitler have condemned them at Dachau? Without him Caesar would have stood alone, He’s the one who gives his body As a weapon of the war, And without him all this killing can’t go on. He’s the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame, His orders come from far away no more, They come from here and there and you and me, And brothers can’t you see, This is not the way we put the end to war.

Donovan was superb in the 60’s. Another great who never gets enough credit. He was as good as almost anyone in those days.

‘without him all this killing can’t go on’ – by 1971-72 the greater majority of us fighting troops in Vietnam, flat out refused direct orders to go into battle; this consciousness spread like wild fire, forcing Nixon to abandon the ground troop strategy, by beginning to bring home the troops. The reality of the situation is he had to go to an air war because his ground troops flat out refused to fight it out anymore. This was an unprecedented event in American history, the troops refusing to fight from unit to unit. Whole company units refused to move, and since the military stockades were over filled to capacity, the companies were held for arrest within their own company perimeter. Some now say it was this refusal to fight that had spread all over Vietnam, is what shut down the war; the troops, not Nixon . Read ‘Soldiers in Revolt,’ by David Cortright; it’ll blow your mind. As weapons of the war, they chose not to be, and without them all this killing can’t go on.’

I have the most special memory. My father worked at a youth club and he told us about a talented person who had no idea how talented he was …

He blames the soldiers.. yes. But if there were no soldiers then there could be no wars. Ever. Soldiers are the ultimate weapon in any conflict. I think I know what he means. And I understand. If no man decided to be a soldier….. what then?
