11 November – Armistice Day

Today we see a lot of foolish, ignorant people celebrating one of the world’s greatest disasters.

Every year on 11 November ceremonies are held to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France for the end of hostilities on the Western Front.

Germany was not broken up, Germany was not destroyed; Germany was helped to rebuild. Germany was allowed to rearm in preparation for its second attempt to take over the world. World War II was waiting to show what a real world-war looked like.

As a direct result of the Allies lack of action after World War I, some 75 million people died in World War II. More than 40 million civilians died because of deliberate genocide, massacres, mass-bombings, disease, and starvation.
Not a lot to celebrate here.

Today we listen in horror as US Secretary of State Antony Blinken shows that he is not fully acquainted with these long-passed times. “Far too many Palestinians have been killed,” he said, ending a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Asia. It was not clear how many Palestinians he believed should have been killed.

Perhaps the Secretary of State was unaware of the October 7 attack when Hamas gunmen broke through the border fence killing 1,400 Israelis and abducting 240.
Perhaps the Secretary of State has forgotten that, back in 1945, his country was happy to drop a couple of atom bombs on the long-suffering Japanese civilians.

But, today, we offer the Palestinian terrorists a simple choice … Come out with your hands up or die in your tunnels.
