David,

yes I agree, that is how I have interpreted the song. One could argue that the song makes the point that all the while there are "girls of 16" who are prepared to fight and kill / be lilled in order to impose their particular "ism" on the remainder of the population there will never be an end to pointless killing; but I strongly suspect that that was not the intention of the writer.
