Jean-Claude Van Damme und Dolph Lundgren spielten bisher nur in zwei Filmen zusammen: „Universal Soldier“ von Roland Emmerich aus dem Jahr 1992 und dem Sequel „Universal Soldier: Regeneration“ aus dem Jahr 2009. Darin wird auf den Vietnamkrieg Bezug genommen, indem … ach was. Lest doch einfach den Originalverriss der Washington Post aus dem Jahr 1992.

Denn ironischerweise ist „Universal Soldier“ auch der Titel eines Songs der kanadischen Sängerin Buffy Sainte-Marie aus dem Jahr 1962, der im Protest gegen den Vietnamkrieg eine wichtige Rolle spielte. Für die jüngeren unter uns kommentiert Sainte-Marie diesen Song auf ihrer eigenen Webseite wie folgt:

He’s five foot two and he’s six foot four
These were the height parameters for soldiers in 1961

He fights with missiles and with spears
In both the future and the past, soldiers are soldiers: only the equipment varies

He’s all of 31 and he’s only 17
Age parameters during the 1960s

He’s been a soldier for a thousand years
This is not some new high tech phenomenon

He’s a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist a Jain,
A Buddhist, and a Baptist and a Jew
Soldiers are found even among people who are “religious” and are not confined to just one religion

And he knows he shouldn’t kill and he knows he always will
Even though his religion forbids it, he chooses to be a killer

Kill you for me, my friend, and me for you
Whichever side he’s on, it’s still absurd

He’s fighting for Canada. He’s fighting for France. He’s fighting for the USA
and he’s fighting for the Russians and he’s fighting for Japan
He’s not just from some far away enemy country but from “our” country too

And he thinks he’ll put an end to war this way
He hasn’t thought it through from a logical, long range point of view

He’s fighting for democracy, he’s fighting for the Reds
He’s on “our side” as well as “their side”

He’s says it’s for the peace of all
He’s believes in the absurdity of violence as an act of peace

He’s the one who must decide who’s to live and who’s to die
He has a responsibility he’s been trained to overlook

And he never sees the writing on the wall
He learns nothing from history so can’t predict obvious outcomes of repeating it

But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau
Human beings allow other human beings to commit genocide

Without him Caesar would have stood alone.
We can’t blame just the leaders

He’s the one who gives his body as a weapon to a war
Each individual has a choice

And without him all this killing can’t go on
No individual soldiers = no war

He’s the universal soldier and he is really is to blame
Some responsibility is upon each soldier

But his orders come from far away no more
The Nazis claimed they were innocent because their orders came from” far away” superiors but that’s not true here and now in our modern democracies

They come from him and you and me
We are each responsible – civilians, mothers and sweethearts – so long as we tolerate it

and Brothers, can’t you see this is not the way to put an end to war?
This last line is put not as scolding someone else but as a question to someone you love. Note that the music ends on an unresolved chord.

Außerdem erzählt sie hier, wie der Song entstand, und singt ihn schließlich:

Soviel zu Jean-Claude Van Damme und Dolph Lundgren.
