The Universal Soldier, written by Ochs, I think, and sung by Buffy, or was it the other way 'round, is one of the finest pieces of anti-war music ever written. So, too, is "I Ain't a Marchin' Anymore", but on the rough-and-tumble side of the ledger, I could vote for "Ye Masters of War". I don't see anyway to calibrate all this opinion, though, Davey lad.
