100 Years

One hundred years ago, a vain stupid little man whom accident of birth had made the leader of Germany declared war on France and lit the blue touch paper on a century of bloodletting that isn't over yet. The endless killing in the Middle East and the civil war in the Ukraine is a direct result.

It also meant a century when the most powerful nations on Earth made themselves mere provinces of American and Asian Empires.

Those who demand decisive political leadership should reflect: sometimes you get what you wish for.
