Politicians' funeral pyre

So yesterday we heard that:
An open letter published Friday in Britain's The Independent newspaper and signed by former British Cabinet ministers and ambassadors urged Blair to help broker a swift cease-fire...The letter was also signed by musicians Damon Albarn, Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno.
It is more than clear to me that Gabriel and Eno miscalculated by not inviting their pal Robert Fripp to co-sign.

Blair was a big fan of Fripp's band King Crimson, especially their seminal 1969 track "21st Century Schizoid Man":
Blood rack barbed wire
Politicians' funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
21st century schizoid man
Say what you want about the British Prime Minister - he's a rocker.
