WWI and WWII, Britain and Germany struggled for power. Back then, the biggest and richest empire on earth was the British Crown. After these epic and hideous struggles for power, Germany lay in ruins and Britain was bankrupt. The US saved Britain in both wars only to rebuild Germany who now dominates Britain nearly totally until this week when the British public clobbered the Germans hard in the political realm. The shakedown this is causing is epic and it is time to review history for history is written in blood and the Goddess of History laughs demonically while writing because humans have a very poor learning curve.
Photos of British troops on the eve of the Somme 100 years ago as England remembers one of the biggest military disasters on earth. The entire reason why Britain did this disastrous surge into heavily protected German trenches in order to prop up the French who were finally flagging after the extended ‘Battle of Verdun’ which was extremely bloody.
The military leaders of the British army were delusional when they thought that bombing German trenches would then allow the foot soldiers to simply stroll over the the German trenches and then, after a supposedly brief hand to hand combat, take over. The problem with this was, the bombardment was USELESS. Ditto, bombing cities in war. WWI didn’t convince the military about this, nor did WWII or the Korean War or the Vietnam War, etc. to infinity to today when bombardments are nearly totally useless.
During WWII, at great cost, all sides bombed each other mercilessly from the air and this did burn down entire cities and killed millions of civilians but industries continued onwards relentlessly despite this. WWII ended with the near-total annihilation of civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That is, wars are won via annihilation and this is still very much true since WWIII will end whenever all the nukes are finally used as they will be in such a war.
Now…the entire reason we have this thing called ‘The United Nations’ is because of WWIII. The UN is supposed to prevent WWIII except it can’t and won’t. Instead, the UN has happily hopped aboard the ‘Climate Change’ clown car and is much more worried about a slightly warmer planet than a nuclear winter/end of all humans in cities event.
This battle is a turning point in history. Using mass troops to storm positions didn’t end with this battle but the battle showed very clearly, it is utterly useless and ends many lives in a horrible way for nothing. During the Korean War, for example, sending troops with virtually no armor into a mass attack on fortified positions continued and this belief continues to this day. Throwing away the lives of millions of soldiers this way happened, for example, in the war between Iraq and Iran.
In WWI battles using this dreadful, useless tactic, the men would run as individuals, jumping in and out of crater holes, crawling, running, rolling on the ground as individuals trying desperately to reach fighters on the other side who simply swept them aside with machine gun fire.
Today’s news has a typical example of ‘victory via bombing’ story that illustrates the futility of this sort of activity: America strikes back: US airstrikes kill 250 ISIS fighters outside Fallujah less than 24 hours after attack on Istanbul’s airport left 42 dead. This ‘attack’ was just yet another day in Iraq as our failed war there limps onwards lasting even longer than the equally stupid Vietnam war.
Note how huge, expensive bombs are rained down on a small convoy of trucks and if you look closely, you can see the drivers and others running from the trucks and getting away, the ‘death toll’ is pure fantasy assuming that these various bombs worked perfectly when we know this is never true except with nuclear bombs that annihilate everything for a mile or more radius.
Wars are won and lost in the banking sector. The US has misspent trillions on ridiculous wars which we ultimately lose for the most part. Remember the victory celebrations concerning our illicit war against Saddam? Oh, Americans were so proud we got rid of him, the one person who had nothing to do with 9/11 and our rulers knew perfectly well and were and still are outright war criminals for what they did to Iraq in 2002.
We are still fighting there! And it is expensive. Way back in the Vietnam War, we drew up a leaflet showing in a cartoon how to win the hearts and minds of the Vietnamese: rain dollars on them, not bombs. In the end, many years later, this finally happened and lo and behold, they became our friends. Every death in that stupid war was utterly crass and totally unnecessary and the bitterness this left in the mouths of vets continues to this day. It is heartbreaking.

Fallujah Fight: US rushing to send drones & missiles to Iraq after Iran said they would help the government in Bagdad retake this city- YouTube

Meanwhile, our fight with our own Frankenstein creation set up to destroy Russia in Afghanistan, issues another warning they are at war with us: Al Qaeda to jihadis: ‘Target white Americans, avoid minorities, because US mislabels attacks as ‘hate crime’. They are quite anxious to tell us, this is a religious war. Of course, Islam is at war with women and gays and nearly everyone else over cultural/sexual issues.
Amazing Korean War Footage – Firefights Airstrikes against North Korea – YouTube: this is a reminder how useless bombing is. North Korea exists today, is totally insane and has NUKES and can start WWIII any time the dictator there decides to commit mass suicide. All the leaders in WWI and WWII had nifty bunkers or vacation homes in the Alps, etc. to hide from mayhem while leaving entire cities to be utterly destroyed.
The Emperor of Japan didn’t have so much as a fire cracker land on his noggin and he was very much involved in setting up the war machine to loot and enslave all neighbors and attack anyone and everyone in sight.
WWIII might start in the unfortunate place erroneously called ‘The Holy Land’: Netanyahu: Israel Will ‘Never Accept’ Palestinian State, End of Settlements as he doubles down because Israel has many nukes and would launch them all in an eye blink.
BOMBSHELL : Nigel Farage BACK in EuroParl After BREXIT – & On Fire ! 28June – YouTube as Europe disintegrates. All this mayhem can cause WWIII and we are always one bomb away from WWIII and of course, our rulers love bombs since they are both expensive and can be evaded by not being where bombs are dropping except….WWIII will hunt them all down and can blow away the most secure of bomb shelters.
