  1. AceNewsServices says my one real bugbear’s with War has always been how people “Glorify” war as a mantra of heroism, and then families come out the woodwork saying my son/daughter is a hero. Well he maybe in the eyes of this world, a hero, but l am sorry to say a dead hero, and they are a minus, a son or daughter.
    I know we have to defend our family and our home, but we have turned this around and as happened in World War 1/2 our children have become “Cannon Fodder” to those who want “War For Profit Purposes”
