Black Watch by Gregory BurkePosted: August 13, 2016
A short play about Scotland's royal infantry coming to Iraq in 2004 to support Uncle Sam's pet invasion of the House of Saddam.
A modern play, it would probably be perfect and quite entertaining if I attended a theater performance – off a kindle page, however, words, stories, scoffs and swearing from the retired Black Watch vets touched me a lot less.
Nonetheless, it has a good balance between “support our boys” and “what in the world are we fighting for”.
Well, we'll need to get fucking used tay it. Bullying's the fucking job. That's what you have a fucking army for.
