I dont know about all that. I certainly dont. What's the saying - only the dead have seen an end of war.

WWI to me is fascinating as Europe stood astride the globe, dominating in every fashion. And they just dismembered themselves. And it was really all about pride. Everyone wanted that war. Everyone wanted the chance to prove that they were the best. The powderkeg wasnt the Balkans, that was just an excuse to get after each other. The powderkeg was in the hearts of the leaders on both sides.
