Normally, He's A Pacifist

Gavin Martin, The Independent, 15 November 2001

SIR PAUL had been up in the city to promote his Driving Rain album and 'Freedom' single, a song which has prompted some to suggest that he is the first Beatle to have supported a war. Sir Paul responded:
"Normally you're a pacifist and you don't want any kind of war at all, but occasionally something so atrocious happens there's gotta be some kind of response. I'd like to see the bombing stop but what are you gonna do, turn the other cheek? I don't think that is possible.
