Sorry guys, I don’t usually post two videos in one week but I just had to post this one.
It’s from Aussie singer Beccy Cole who is singing “Poster Girl” in response to some of her fans who disagree with her supporting the Diggers, the Australian soldiers fighting in Afghanistan.
Really makes me tear up.

Aw man!! Kinda makes me proud of my Aussie roots (by default) !!! Hey Yall! I grew up over there!! LOL
You go girl! I’m not even slightly Aussie, but it made me proud too.
So many chills, I’m freezing my ass off!
LOL KTOO – you as much of a softie as I am.
God Bless the soldiers! Seems many have a problem with them, but thank God they are there.
I’ll second that, SB. Thank God!
I may not be an Aussie but damn that choked me up.
Me too, Evyl. Me too.
The world needs more ‘artists’ like Beccy.
Wonderful tune, great lyrics.
A friend of mine (a soldier) once told me that the Aussies were some of the greatest soldiers he’d ever seen. Tough as nails and not to be messed with.
Too bad not many in this world will hear this song.
Well I’m doing my part in getting the song disseminated. It is beautiful and she is a brave young woman – who clearly talks the talk and walks the walk. Can’t ask more than that of anyone.
Remember they are giving thier today for our tommorow. Support or dont support you should realize the work they are doing and the way they are keeping our head high. I am not a supporter of war, any war I mean, but I also understand that in today’s world people become greedy so if I want to live in peace at my own place some time I have to fight back.
You know, Eka…that’s an interesting point. One would think that the opposite of anti-war is pro-war but I don’t think so. I don’t think anyone is truly pro-war. But I do think that there are times, as you say, that you have to fight back.
It’s like the old bully on the block adage. If you know there is a bully on the block preying on the weaker children, beating them up and taking their lunch money and making them afraid to go outside what do you do? Do you ignore it, let things play themselves out and hope the weaker kids in the neighborhood make it through on their own? Or do you confront the bully and make him stop beating up on the other kids? To me, sometimes you have to face down the bully even if you don’t want to and even if it threatens your own peaceful existence.
I know that a lot of people like to criticize the U.S. for getting involved in things that isn’t their business – but to my way of thinking – we are all responsible for our fellow men and women. If we truly want universal peace how can we not come to the aid of other countries and citizens? Even if that means a bloody battle? Let’s be real – there are some real bullies in the world and they must be dealt with, unless we all want to live our lives in fear.
I don’t like war either. I demonstrated against the war in Vietnam. Some wars make no sense and are merely economically driven. Other wars are the price you pay for freedom. WWII was certainly that, and the War on Terrorism shares more similarities with WWII than Vietnam, the Korean War and other wars. When Hitler was exterminating the Jews and other minority groups the world turned a blind eye. When he started invading countries in Europe a realization was forced upon them. It is too easy to become complacent when the bully is off in some other neighborhood and you are not personally threatened. I think 9/11 was a wake-up call regarding our freedoms. We are all threatened in our own neighborhoods and like it or not, we all need to WAKE UP, protect and fight for our freedoms. Hell, I sure don’t want to be wearing a berka, do you? LOL! And fashion is the least of our worries in this fight.
Berka? Hell no. My ass is fat enough and I really don’t look good in burlap. Something about the texture…too bulky. ;)WC
