It has been a century since WWI. What have we learned?

It was called the Great War and the War to End All Wars, and most people today have no clue. The last veteran of that war was Frank Buckles who passed away several years ago. It was World War I. We are at the 100th anniversary of that war — and could it be possible that we are teetering on the precipice of another major global conflagration?

Funny thing how history has a way of repeating itself in that Woodrow Wilson was an Ivy League educated progressive president with an administration replete with academics. I guess it would be laughable if the situation were not so dire. I wonder if Wilson was a big golfer and fundraiser?

Somehow the world stumbled into the Great War because of Serbian separatists assassinating the Archduke of Austria Ferdinand and his wife. The 27th of July 1914 was the official beginning of World War I and so here we are 100 years later — what have we learned?

As the World War I Centennial site recounts, “America reluctantly entered World War I in 1917. We entered a war that was deadlocked. Opposing armies were dug in, facing each other in trenches that ran nearly 500 miles across northern France—the notorious western front. Two million Americans volunteered for the Army, and nearly three million were drafted. More than 350,000 African-Americans served, in segregated units. For the first time, women were in the ranks, nearly 13,000 in the Navy as Yeoman (F) (for female) and in the Marines. More than 20,000 women served in the Army and Navy Nurse Corps. The first contingent of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF), commanded by General John J. Pershing reached France in June, but it took time to assemble, train, and equip a fighting force. By spring 1918, the AEF was ready, first blunting a German offensive at Belleau Wood. It was there that our U.S. Marine Corps earned the infamous name of “Devil Dogs” from the Germans.”

“Almost three years of horrific fighting resulted in huge losses, but no discernable advantage for either side. American involvement in the war was decisive. Within eighteen months, the sheer number of American “doughboys” added to the lines ended more than three years of stalemate. Germany agreed to an armistice on November 11, 1918. Two million men in the American Expeditionary Force went to France. Some 1,261 combat veterans—and their commander, General Pershing—were awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the nation’s second-highest award for extraordinary heroism. Sixty-nine American civilians also received the award.”

The American World War I Museum is located in Kansas City, Missouri and there will be a series of remembrances there and throughout the nation. If you are near a World War I memorial take your children. If not, at least take the time to teach them of a horrific war. As from me, I would recommend famed British war historian John Keegan’s “The First World War” as a comprehensive read.

World War I saw the advent of many new war technologies. The machine gun changed the course when it came to massive human wave attacks. The horse cavalry and static line defenses would be replaced with the introduction of the beast called the “tank.” Chemical weapons were used. And with the newly found capability of air combat, fighter aircraft made their introduction and we learned a new term, “Fighter Aces.”

World War I set the stage for World War II and many of the famed Generals and figures who played the role in the second great war were battle-tested in the first. As for my history as a future U.S. Army officer, I found pride in the distinguished service and history of the first black regiment to serve in the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) the famed “Harlem Hellfighters” 369th Infantry Regiment. Proud men who joined the lineage of the 54th Massachusetts, 9th and 10th Calvary Regiments, “Buffalo Soldiers” who paved a way for me.

I hope you’ll take the time to learn more about World War I with this short video.

  1. Barbara Tuchman’s book, The Guns of August, is another great book about World War One.

    WW1 was a civlization changing event, wiping away the reverence and importance of the old world aristocracy and forging the way for whole new political and social belief systems.

    The war itself was a meat grinder…
    Many field grade officers achieved their rank thanks to the old ways where command was decided by social class instead of competence…. and 19th century tactics were used against 20th century weapons.

      • You gaytheists and fagnostics of Al Queerda are no different than the hijab wearing douche bags.

        Satanism is a Jewish cult… it is the same devil…

        jewish mammonism = baphomet = mahomet = muslim brotherhood

        Churchill was right about the Dardanelles.

        The Turks only had 3 rounds of ammunition left.

        Not pressing the tactical advantage set the stage for the Bolshevik Revolution, WW2, the Cold War, and a whole generation of college aged European men died in the trenches.

        “Spread the other cheek” is not in the Bible, it is a horrible domestic and military policy.

      • Has anyone ever mentioned… how you don’t make any sense?
        PS… the were more Jews in the Mensheviks. So whatever you’re driving at with the Bolsheviks sounds like stupid propaganda.
        PS#2… Maybe you should attempt to say what you want to instead of being ditsy…

      • Satanism is a Jewish cult, the Synagogue of Sodomy.

        Your decadent Goat of Khar is “Baphomet,” a logo with Hebrew letters used by Satanic cults all over the world and created by Eliphas Levi, a Jewish occultist connected to devil worshippers all over Europe in the 1800s. The origin of the name Baphomet was an old French version of “Mahomet.”

        jewish mammonism = baphomet = mahomet = muslim brotherhood

        It is the same devil…

      • C’mon dude… research Al Banna and how the MB was created and why it was.
        I’ll give you a hint… Jewish hatred.
        Just like your brainwashed programming.
        Ugh…

      • I could imagine he was referring to satanic Islam… aye?
        Since their totalitarian government which is cloaked in a religion preys upon enslaving, raping, maiming, mutilating, bombing and slaughtering other humans, all to satisfy their hunger of blatant evil.

        PS… the Talmud is satanic. <<< [Now try to wrap your tiny little mind around comprehending that.]

  2. Beautiful that war and all its deeds of carnage must in time be utterly lost,That the hands of the sisters Death and Night incessantly softly wash again, and ever again, this soil’d world;For my enemy is dead, a man as divine as myself is dead,I look where he lies white-faced and still in the coffin — I draw near,Bend down and touch lightly with my lips the white face in the coffin.

    • Not sure why you felt it necessary to mention what the Bible doesn’t say… when it’s obvious most everything taking place ever since has been associated with satanic Islamic advancement & expansion…
      I suppose you never heard of Islamofascism… aye?

      • Abortion is a ritual murder performed upon an altar of conceit, before an idol of vanity…

        jewish mammonism = baphomet = mahomet = muslim brotherhood

        same devil

        Islamic birth control is a bomb strapped to a ten year old child… While Christians and Jews might use an IUD for birth control, Islamics use an IED.

        You gaytheists and fagnostics of Al Queerda are no different than the hijab wearing douche bags.

      • Baal = Hubal = allah
        Dude… you must be suffering from the lack of attention…
        Either that or a Islamic serving neo-Nazi white supremacist skinhead? You tell me…

      • If I were to tell the press millions of Americans would be blown up by an Iranian nut job or that Democrats have stolen your entire life savings with bailouts and Obamacare, nobody panics because it is all part of the plan.

        But if I say a few homosexuals at the Olympics are upset over their little wee wees, why, everyone just loses their minds!

        Sincerely,

        A. Joker

      • Yeah… and I get it. So why don’t you?
        Take for instance Ahmadinejad [Iran]…
        First off… he won’t attack America.
        Get this… There isn’t anyone who is more interested in the destruction of Iran other than Sowdi Barbaria.
        Why? I’ll tell ya… Sunni vs. Shiite.
        Secondly… when the discussion of raising the debt limit and cutting Americans monthly checks… we never hear about the billions being invested in satanic Islamic nations.
        Why is that? Why are we spending 400 billion on the world’s largest embassy in the Islamic Drug Lords country of Afghanistan?

        Why is it that Americans are threatened with cutbacks while billions of tax payers fiat money is dropped in these satanic worshipping Islamic nations?

        I’ll tell ya…

        Get this…The Luciferian Globalists are aiding, funding and helping satanic Islam expand across this world. It’s the perfect totalitarian government which completely controls the masses while it permits virtually every sin man has ever conjured up in history.

        You do know that satanic worshipping muslims are some of the biggest drug dealers in the world… aye?
        Why is that so? I’ll tell ya… it’s a soft kill method used against us unbelieving Infidels of the fake god called allah.
        Which also brings up the discussion of population reduction of the lesser undesirables such as the unbelieving Infidels. All the while satanic worshipping muslims procreate like rabbits while living off government support/welfare. It’s the Islamic way!
        The fact is Winston… you’re on the wrong track. Focused on the wrong entity… spewing regurgitated propaganda like a parrot for satanic Islam… hating on the wrong things… all the while building up the bully of this world… satanic Islam.
        And… you’re too ignorant to see that you’re being played like a old worn out fiddle.
        PS… allah is a fake god.

      • Yeah… you said that already…
        Which makes you look foolish…
        PS… I’m not Jewish.
        Q: Are you assuming?

      • Silly you…
        Islamofascism is not Jewish…
        Islam is an extension of Babylonian Paganism. You can refer to the satanic Kaaba [Black Cube] in Mecca…

  4. Thinking of the many brave men who went over the top (of their trenches) and…into the efficient machine gun fire…of the enemy! This was the tactic of many leaders…and resulted in many many deaths on both sides.

  5. Considering that the Great War didn’t really end until Hitler oversaw the total destruction of Germany, we haven’t learned much. The borders drawn in the Middle East, after the original conflict, continue to threaten World peace.

    • You’re right…
      Even when I look back on my days in school… they didn’t teach much of anything beyond memorizing a few stupid dates in order to pass a exam.
      And… you might recall when the satanic worshipping muslims were revolting in Egypt a couple years ago… how they went into the museums and destroyed the Egyptian artifacts. Their thinking was… if it isn’t Islamic related… destroy it.

      • Many military and religious groups attempting to “take over the world” have done that. The thinking is “destroy their history and they’ll have nothing to cling to.” Supposedly it will make the overthrown people more pliable to their “new culture”.

      • Good point…
        But satanic Islam take it a step further… their objectives are to destroy everything that isn’t associated with their totalitarian government and which doesn’t reflect upon their fake god called allah & it’s so called prophet.

  6. We’ve learned that the old adage that “absolute power corrupts absolutely” plays second fiddle to the power, greed and avarice of central banks.

      • Really?
        It sounds like the two of you are.
        Considering… all the banks have converted to Sharia Finance, which helps satanic Islam in it’s quest for world domination.
        Tell me Winston… how does the Banking system, World Bank, Wall Street and the IMF changing to Sharia Finance help anything but satanic Islam?
        The fact is… it only helps satanic Islam!
        If you really care… you can research the website “Sharia Finance Watch” and learn a few things… mainly the truth.

  7. I’ll be honest… I can’t put a finger on how WWI began. It would probably take weeks of intense studying to figure it all out. Considering how the preceding Balkan Wars also played into it too…
    More importantly… I really wonder how Islam played it’s role in the assignation of Ferdinand. And I don’t think this video emphasizes the position of the Islamic Ottoman Empire aligned with Germany & Austria. A brief mention of Turkey doesn’t do it in my eyes…
    [Makes ya wonder how the still media remains protective of sheading a negative light on their ever loving satanic Islam.]
    Also.. why would Austria declare war on another country [Serbia] when some individuals/gang were trying to assassinate Franz?
    No… there’s more to this history and we’re nor getting all the pieces to put it together.
    Why is this so important? To me?
    Because Israel was established from the dismantling of this Ottoman Empire…
    Additionally; the Crown Jewel of the British Empire called India was a factor… along with the Christian Armenian Genocide by satanic muslims…
    A lot was going on during that time…
    and…
    The one thing I see from this split up of the Ottoman Empire is that it essentially divided the Islamic sects into specific nations which is more easily conquered in today’s world at this moment in time.
    And… history shows how the push for a One World Government began right after WWI.
    The fact is… WWI changed the face of the world and laid the groundwork for today’s issues dealing with satanic Islam…
    See… when I look at history over the past 120 years… I want to know how it played into developing the One World Islamic Economic System in place today awaiting to be implemented…

  8. it was because the archduke of Austria-Hungary was sjot. serbia attacked Austria-hungary. russia joined the war to help serbia. germany wanted to capture paris and planned to pmarch their army acorss the begian borders to get to fance. the belgians, who were allies with france and called the up and help defend their cvountry. britain also helped. russia was allies with france and came to fight germany on the east, so the german army was split and germany fought a war on two fronts. germany knew if they caputered the belgiuan city of Ypres then they could get to the three brittish ports and britain wouldnt be able to get the supplies they need. this would force the brittish army to surrender and the german army would capture paris. so the whole war was fought for this one little city.
