Sport has changed, in many ways it has become sterile, predictable and staid, the problem can be placed at the door of many reasons, some will point the finger at the amount of money flowing into the game of football, motor racing, tennis and all those mass spectator sports in between, the amount of airtime afforded, especially in Europe to football, others will perhaps suggest that the problem lays at the door of personality and rivalry. So little of either, so few names that are willing to go beyond the rehearsed answers, so few that are not ruled by emotion rather than the P.R exercise, sport in many ways was so much more thrilling and dramatic before wall to wall coverage on television.

There are no winners in war, just people who are alive and those who have died and sometimes those that are in between the two states, their hearts functioning but ground to stone and whose thoughts are too preoccupied with what they have witnessed to ever find solace in humanity again. War is meaningless at the best of times, when it sees the split second decision enforced upon someone, to let someone else die or a comrade, then the futility of it is heart-breaking and obvious, such is the madness of A War.
