A nice quiet saturday afternoon, what shall we do?
I know! Let’s start a war.
What a good idea. We have visited Mesopotamia, in the first world war, I think it is called Iraq now. Twice we have travelled through that country recently. Afghanistan, still called that, we were in and out of that country for most of the 19th and early 20th century, still no different, tribal, hostile and murderous, it looks like we will be stuck there for a considerable number of years, plenty more troops to die there.
Back to Cyrenaica, I believe it is called Libya in the present day, we marched up and down that piece of desert, remember Tobruk, held it one time lost it the next.
What did they call it The Cyrenaica Two step, one pace forward two steps back, God the flies were terrible. I hope they are fighting for a worthwhile cause.
Peace and democracy I believe.
Really! Isn’t that what we fought for.
Yes, I wonder what went wrong.
They probably gave it to the politicians to sort out.
Perhaps if we gave the politicians a gun each, and locked them in a room together that would finish all wars.
No, they would pay someone else to die for them.
