Donna Black-Cat: WW2 governments unleashed unprecedented terror of ‘technology’ targeting civilians, with 50% of casualties, including the Jewish Holocaust being civilians (compared to 5% of casualties being civilians in WW1) (07.06.2019)
There is only a lot of annual ‘un’- remembering by politicians, royals and religious leaders over World War Two that really began when Franco who was Europe’s favourite military dictator who “got away with it all” began his war against Catalans on 19 July 1936, so all the other countries could test their ‘technology’.
... most casualties in wars are civilians...
The British government always knew the Nazis did not have an invasion force.
In fact, there was a very selective ‘liberation’ of what was called ‘Europe’ when you consider the military dictator Franco remained, while Eastern Europe was offloaded to Stalin, who notably did not exploit what we now know are vast oil resources in the Soviet Union, to benefit people.
There wasn't a single government in Europe who had made any effort to protect Jewish people, and there was certainly no rush by any of the allies, to liberate any concentration camps.
The Jewish State was created in legitimate self-defense that wasn't contingent on either the Balfour Declaration or nationalism.
The idea of democracy and the rule of law, has not progressed much since WW2.
The mostly forgotten casualties of war are always civilians.
The public are not involved in electing either the British monarchy who insist on still being the unelected Head of the British Commonwealth too, along with their Governor General’s/Raj or the EU with it’s President who is only elected by politicians. (Even the Pope who can be from anywhere in the world, is only elected by a conclave of Cardinals)
All politics should be voluntary unpaid public service, which is something no royal, politician or religious leader has ever done.
