The wars being raged world wide today
Origins in a war waged long long ago
Known as The Great War - popular (SICK) better known
As World War One
That War started for most country's in 1914
Supposed to have officially ended in 1919
By the signing of a treaty of Versailles in Paris

The defeated Empires of Germany and The Ottoman - Turkish
Carved up and given - handed out to the British and French
The carving up of The Middle East of course!
Since then Wars have broken out World War Two
That just not just one flare up
Great wars little wars never ever ending wars since then!
Thus it it is so - NO ENDING IN SITE!

Never ending is the truth of it Ken. The US has been at war since ww11 continuously! From 1940 til today and they just keep going!thats a continuous state of war for over 80 years. I think they're trying to beat the 100 years war! If they are we just stopped all this madness there'd be more then enough money to make everyone in the world a decent life.

Good insight, ken. The Treaty of Versailles was the match that lit the fuse.
