The devious merchants of war


“In a coincidence we all hope isn’t prophetic, the US entered World War One exactly 100 years ago on the day Trump ordered the military intervention in Syria.

 

“On April 6 1917, Congress voted to enter the then bloodiest war history had ever seen, which had already been raging for three years.

 

“The war took the lives of more than 17 million worldwide.

 

“Historians argue that US’ intervention altered the outcome of the war, and the course of history.”

The devious merchants of war
are busily picking the sore
so it never starts healing
and they can keep dealing
their killing machines evermore.
