When Thirty Seven Million Died...

I had no idea that 37 million casualties took place 99 years ago this July. We managed to kill over 60 million in WW2. Nearly 100 million people died in two wars.

WW1 must have been one savage conflict. How much have we learned since then? My gut tells me, damn little.

Excellent song. Sometimes this is where my reading takes me. Thanks, Jules.

We have learned nothing. Wait till the Islamists release a new Black Death created in some lab on the world.
