A century of war
More than 170 million people were killed by governments with 10 million having been killed in World War I and 50 million killed in World War II. Of the 50 million killed in World War II, nearly 70 percent were innocent civilians, many as a result of the bombing of cities by Great Britain and America.

Wars that destroyed American liberty came about through a series of deceitful political ploys... Lincoln worked to provoke the South into firing the first shot, and ... he used that shot as the pretext for total war. Wilson learned from this experience in working to get the US involved in World War I, which established a precedent for the planning state. FDR similarly engaged in political maneuvering to prepare a reluctant public for war.
The myth of spat-upon veterans
Shouldn’t haunt the anti-war movement

St Hedwig (Św. Jadwiga)
A patroness not only of Poland but of Silesian Germans, forced to leave their homes at the end of World War II, which friend Larry Reilly rightly describes as a pioneering American example of ethnic cleansing.
