Maybe the problem is that you both seem to be “missing” who was actually controlling that war, as they had WW I, and all the wars since WW II as well, for sure, probably a lot more of them before WW I that I’m not certain about. Remember Ike’s warning about the “military-industrial complex”? Behind that complex is BANKERS; the money guys, mainly the large banking houses that have been established for centuries. They have been pulling strings on nations for centuries too. They, along with 2 other main groups that have stayed largely in the shadows, insofar as their level of control over governments, but working in concert are the real “rulers” of our world; THEY are who made the ultimate decisions; who called the winners and losers, not our apparent national leaders.
