Tanks and bombs


Recommended Posts

I've somehow always had a strong affinity for and empathy with Ireland and the Irish, even though I am a fierce atheïst, and they are not. But still, it is a land of mystery and fairy tales, but also tales of unbearable hardship (potato famine, violent oppression by English). It may also be because during most of my lifetime the civil war in the North was the armed conflict that was literally closest to home - still at a very safe distance on the Netherlands - the bombs stayed on the other side of the puddle.

This song from the Cranberries is about post traumatic stress disorder in the children of The Troubles. Too many shots, explosions... they can't "unhear" them...
