Losing Armies
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
 
May 1945, the occupying forces in Norway surrender, a flag
is lowered, another one hoisted. The occupiers’ commandant
hands his revolver to the man from the home front, there is
dignity. The enemy now prisoners, go back to their barracks
and wait to be skipped home to their country. 
Another war, in the Middle East 70 years later, the occupiers
leave in the night unseen by the masses, they too have lost
but pretend they are victors. No dignity, only an unspoken
sense of dishonor. And the soldiers, of the vanquished army,
will be demobbed, given medals and sacrifices are forgotten.
