We're going on an adventure!
Today the First World War is commemorated.
I see Ed Milliband being a twerp at the Cenotaph.
postscript: It seems that the Department of Culture made sure Cameron wrote on his card, but did not ask Clegg or Miliband.
This is a stitch up by Tory spin doctors with no respect whatsoever for the war dead. It's disgraceful.
Penyffordd lads were sent to Turkey ill equipped to deal with conditions
Red hot in the day, freezing cold at night.
No antibiotics for wounds.
Many must have begged for a bullet through the head to end the suffering
Still the sanitized version prevails I see.
Recruits were not fully conversant with what they were letting themselves in for.
Those left at home were kept very much in the dark
All letters sent home were screened with anything bad removed
Protesters at the senseless carnage in the trenches were shot.
The Media had to go along with The State
( Main Stream Media still does ! )
The reality and horror best summed up below.
With thanks to The Slog
"French Second Lieutenant Alfred Joubaire wrote in his diary about WWI just before he died that “Humanity is mad! It must be mad to do what it is doing. What a massacre. What scenes of horror and carnage! I cannot find words to translate my impressions. Hell cannot be so terrible! Men are mad!”
10 million dead.
Millions with shellshock and post traumatic stress
A bankrupt United Kingdom.
And what for?
Yes all because of our idiot politicians.
