Wow fantastic, thank you for that... Even in time of war... Back then there was still honor, reminds me of stories I've heard of men on / near the front lines playing soccer (football) with the "enemy" on Christmas.


Star and flag. Great find.


[Edit to add : (football) ]

It was quite touching...
What saddens me the most is that all of those men and women were fighting and sacrificing everything with the idea that future generations could have peace, that we would never again have to fight in armed conflicts...
And now (to me) it seems war is the 'fiscal financial' solution to assist nations with out democracy etc.

War will happen until the end of time. No amount of knowledge will ever stop it. We are men, we like to fight and fornicate. That is what we do, and we do it well.

Well, me feeling all happy inside about the death of billions of men and woman over history will not stop any wars. Take a look at history, and the different levels of intellectualism during those periods, and you will find one constant: people killing each other.

My statement wasn't me warmongering or condoning it, it was an observation on the human condition. Since history began, fighting and fornicating has driven people to do build empires, or tear them down. I am just being realistic man, to pretend it isn't true is a bit naive in my opinion.

Plus it sounds cool to say it.

ok well then let me first say I AM SORRY ,it was a missunderstanding on my behalf ,and your words are true , we can sit here and debate it all day and forever for that matter and it wont change anything , so i am thinking that the NWO is starting to look like a good option for stoping wars right about now ? that would be the only quick soultion to have a one world order


many thanks

and sorry

I am a man and I love to fornicate but I have hardly ever had a fight and when I did it was defensive. I hate to fight.
We can change.
We are trained to fight. We are born defenseless.


That was a moving clip, thanks

There is no static between you and I my dude, apology accepted thank you. I am not sure if NWO would end the wars though honestly. I hope with all my heart that the citizens of the world would revolt. Besides that it wouldn't surprise me if they continued to wage war against their own allies.

Thanks for that, love the stories of the WW11 vets.
They can say so much with so few words.
In Australia we call them "old diggers" and on rememberence
day, 11-11 at 11am we pause to remember them. On 25-4 its
ANZAC day, a day for Aus and NZ ceremony and rememberence
in honor of our lost. Followed by marches and a game of two up
over a beer and a yarn, its great to hear these stories from men
and women who selflessly gave so much. Ilook forward to Anzac
day every year may god bless them all!

That was actually during world war 1, it was the british-german christmas truce,
along the Western Front during Christmas 1914.
