NATO Prepares

CaptainAmerica2014UncleSam1900UK1941The rhetoric and actions of NATO members last week, with respect to Ukraine and Russia, calls to mind the immaturity and wickedness of previous generation’s leaders, seeking to advance British and American imperialism.

In the top cartoon, from 1900, Uncle Sam writes again and again: “In times of peace prepare for war.”

In the bottom cartoon a British old lady asks a British soldier: “Is it true Hitler’s going to invade us with five million men?” To which the Home Guard replies: “I hope so, Missus. If he doesn’t I think I shall have to pop over and fetch him.”
