The pointless was that did not end all wars

Image result for vimy memorial

On this day, let us remember the 20,000,000 fallen and those who suffered for the rest of their lives. Looking back through the lens of history Canadians rose to fight, still in a colonial mindset, spent blood and treasure on this European debacle of death and destruction. Looking at Europe today and the lack of will of Europeans to fight for the culture and faith, it was all in vain. Those at the time, of course, did not see it this way. It was for King and Country and it was necessary for the preservation of Europe from a united Germany's onslaught.

The fools of France and England punished Germany so badly that another and worse war, and ironically, a just war on the part of the Allies, would be fought only two decades later. The bloodshed we see in the Middle East today is a result of the dreadful Sykes-Picot which carved up the wretched Ottoman Turkish empire and imposed artificial borders and puppet monarchs on the ancient peoples.

Looking at Europe now, the Europeans did not deserve the deaths of tens of thousands of Canadians and Americans who died in trenches of war and disease only to now behold a Europe no longer able to find the will to survive. 

God have mercy on those who died. 

May His justice be served on those who caused it.

Amen Vox. That was beautiful.

In April 1915, a battle weary officer in Belgium sat looking out over the hastily dug graves and crosses that marked the many dead. He observed the larks flying overhead and the red poppies in the field. He wrote, "In Flanders Field".

In Flanders fields, the poppies grow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
in Flanders fields.

Take up your quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
in Flanders fields.

They shall not sleep then. We hate to say this, but the men who died in these wars died for nothing since we are now embracing the crazed ideology of death into our nations that is Islam. So many Western nations have done the unthinkable, but virtue signaling and the post-Christian grand plan of "leaders" were more attractive than Christendom. Even our "pope" has signed on to the post-Christian plan for the world. He helps to that end greatly! It can only be called evil. God help us.

God rest the souls of the brave men and women who gave all or much.

That officer was, of course, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae who was a medical officer of Royal Canadian Artillery, Canadian Expeditionary Force. In Flanders Fields was written at the front in 1915 during the second battle of Ypres. He died on active service of pneumonia.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we shall remember them.

The wicked men in New York and London who caused the World Wars and set up Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and others in power, all died without being brought to justice. Their heirs, Bergoglio, the owners of the Federal Reserve and other central banks, and the Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas, will be brought to justice.

God bless all the souls who died during these wars. My mother's oldest brother died at 23 years old in France. Everyone in the family sent my Nana to Europe to be able to see where her son is buried.

Also let us remember the brave men who fell in order to..."Make the World Safe for Democracy". What a tragic waste. Actually it was worse than a tragedy, if I may echo Fr. VF in the above post, it was a gigantic conspiracy. The academic works of Professor Anthony Sutton provide strong evidence to the nature of the conspiratorial events leading to WWI, WWII and all that followed.
Two books at the level of popular history that are worth reading are; Hidden History The Secret Origins of the First World War, and, Prolonging the Agony. Both books by J MacGregor and G Docherty.

There were a lot of shenanigans behind the scenes in the run-up to WWI.

Are we currently being set-up for another one?
