Thanks for digging these up. People get to see that in any era, the drive to war is always the same. Before the shooting starts there is a war for peoples minds. To indoctrinate them with the same propaganda they do today.
Look at this one from your link... it takes a moment for the pic to load after the text:
Starving people need your help (where the war will be)
This was before the war started and was meant to bring attention to the plight of people in a country where the Powers That Be are planning an intervention. So to rally support for the coming war. As always, its "for the children". Remember the children, save the children...
The reality is that war kills many more children than advertised. But you won't see that. Just remember, you are helping the children.
