“They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.”
― American author and journalist Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)
At a time when the military alliance of European countries and the U.S. are poised on hurling the world in the inferno of World War III, a war in which obviously both the conventional and thermonuclear weapons will be used, Hemingway's words of wisdom are a timely reminder to the imperialist dogs of war and also the ordinary people around the world.
We who are peace activists should oppose all warmongers, expose their dangerous war strategies and their militaristic jingoism. We should inform the people of the dangers of a great annihilation.
