Great collection.

Gotta love a nation that glorifies war to the point of making it seem patriotic, heroic and justified(without proof)

"Buy our paper" (in exchange for your gold) "Give us your gold" "(n exchange for your freedom) and "Give us your freedoms (in exchange for your protection)

Such crap never ends and the saddest part is that so many are still lined up at the butcher block.

The real war? Neighbor against neighbor and ideal vs ideal. But that's being taken care of.

"If you see something, say something"

Traitors.

Peace

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.

The only thing that changed since then is that they used to sell bonds to finance the war, now they just take it from the people or simply print the money they need.
