GUEST,Jim Carroll Anyone watching My Son Jack? (111* d) RE: Anyone watching My Son Jack? 15 Nov 07

WW1 was an imperialist war for world markets and political influence.
The troops who filled the trenches were expendable and were sacrificed for that aim; their officers calculated on a daily basis how many soldiers should be sacrificed for how much ground gained.
British workers had no business slaughtering German workers. By 1919 Germany was involved in a workers revolution almost to the point of victory by the revolutionaries. The Russians showed the best sense and pissed off home.
Let those who start the wars fight them. Flag waving and handing out white feathers is for the Kiplings of this world (that is, as long as it doesn't involve personal sacrifices of course).
