The Exploited Perform "Let's Start a War"

Apologies to Baroness Thatcher, but the above blast from the past has been coming to mind in recent days with the commentaries noting that "[a]mong the voices piping up in support of American military action in Libya are those of Paul Wolfowitz and William Kristol" — From the Please Will You Just Go Away Department.

I'm not sure whether Messrs. Wolfowitz and Kristol were fellow punk fans back in the '80s, but if they were, it is not surprising that they would have have been too dense to realize that punk songs were not meant to be taken at face value, but rather with a near-lethal dose of irony, sarcasm, and cynicism.
