Goerge. I think we are pretty much in agreement. Nothing in your last post I would disagree with and I do take your point on the cold war. The only things we do appear to differ on is the answer to the question 'Do You Think That The Russian's Want War?' For when that question is posed NOW, unfortunately, I would have to say the answer is yes.
When the song was written I would have agreed that the answer would have certainly been no. It was the effect of time and events on a good (topical) song that prompted the post. It does not diminish the song in any way for that was the way the author saw it then. It would be interesting to hear his views on the song and the situation now.
