    Very interesting...thanks. Wars never affect the few who start them as bad as the multitudes they bring misery to.

    Have you ever wondered how Germany, given that it lost its ass in WWI and then the repercussions of the Great Depression, had one of the greatest military machines in history? Where did they get the money to fund the Third Reich?

    Economy of Nazi Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Notice any parallels to the history you're living though now?

    Deficit speding, Keynesian economics
    the Autobahn = American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (only this hasn't reduced unemployment at all)
    Mefo bills = raising the debt ceiling

    I believe it was the Scourge of Georgia, General Sherman, who said "War is Hell."

    We have allowed ourselves to think that 'modern war' is sanitised, clean and high tech. It still takes "boots on the ground" after the clean bit.......

    And the civilians always lose no matter which side 'wins'......
