The great thing about World War 2 is that it ended

whereas the current conflict has been ongoing since September 11, 2001 with no end in sight.
The only thing worse than war is endless war, especially a war which nobody wins after decades of fighting. This is the kind of conflict which modern political leaders specialize in fighting: violence without ultimate effect, sacrifice without any tangible result; conflict without any milestones, guideposts or landmarks. A war that never ends on the quarterdeck of a battleship, but only in the slow drawing of the blinds.

Your Say

"Political conflicts are merely surface manifestations. If conflicts arise you may be sure that certain powers intend to keep the conflicts under operation since they hope to profit from the situation.

The people in power will not disappear voluntarily.” Burroughs

The best thing about WWII is that The United States won. Winners write the history books.
