Subject: 17.1008 The Archbishop Wasn't There? So Forth.
Comment: 	RE: SHK 17.1008 The Archbishop Wasn't There? So Forth.

I wholeheartedly agree with Bruce Young and "Joe Egan" in disputing 
Larry Weiss' overly broad contention that "Waging aggressive war was not 
offensive in the 15th Century..."

As for Shakespeare's own sympathies, let his BOY, disappointed by 
Pistol's hollow bravado, have the last word (IV.4): "I did never know so 
full a voice issue from so empty a heart..." Is Pistol then the 
bloodless mirror of his Christian king?
