World War lll might be about to happen. The west thretened the new Russia sanctions, at the same time Kiev threatened 'world war three'. Kiev incriminated Moscow of being the trigger for a third world war. There were tanks patriotically waving Russian flags five miles from the Ukraine border, on film.

WWII was the biggest war anyone fought, but we might be on out way to WORLD WAR THREE, Russia is getting closer to hostility, North Korea is testing nuclear missiles, Taliban and al-queda still in Iraq and afganisthan.

In WWI the British were one of the only allied powers who could fight, and a lot of the deaths were from the influenza death. BUT you guys did make the tank, the lozenge shaped tanks -sighs happily- but yeah England lost a lot of men in that war, considerable more than WWII I think.

In theory, WW1 was the most devastating conflict, for us British. An estimated 100million people's lives were taken. That's like 3/4 of the population of Britain. But only 1/3 of Germany. On Christmas, they all stopped fighting for a day and played a game of football (Not American Football.) It's a shame really that the War didn't end there! Frown Nose

I've been studying WWll since I was 8 because it is the most important thing that has come to humans yet, and it has effected so much, infact if WWll didn't happen then the U.S. wouldn't be what it is today we could still be suffering from depression

Twisted visions. Dirty lies. No one knows the truth. That lies deep inside. The pain you hide. All day and night. It burns you. Hurts you.  Slowly, Killing you. You hide it best you can. Smile and say it's okay. But really. It's another lie. Another smudge. Inside your mind. You smile though. Keeping hope. But every day. Second by second. It goes away. And at night. There is only despair. Tearing out your hair. You scream at yourself. Why?! Why are you this way?! But when morning comes. You will wash away. All the tears. And all the pain. The lies are dirty. But the truth is dirtier.

I mean your point is fraught with worse problems, but I'm hoping this can be the most relatable.
