Circle of Life

Today DJ iPod is on random play, merrily mashing together all 4600+ tracks with abandon. I was debugging something, when the current tune set off a chord of recognition. What was it playing? Tom's Lehrer's Send the Marines - a satrical piece about the Vietnam war.

The verse in question?

When someone makes a move
Of which we don't approve,
Who is it that always intervenes?
U.N. and O.A.S.,
They have their place, I guess,
But first send the Marines!

(Skimmed from here)

Some things just never change I guess . . . .
