100 years ago today, the greatest man-made disaster in history kicked off. Then, it was called "The Great War," now it's called "World War I."
It was the end of the old era, and the beginning of an era of wars on a scale unprecedented. The rise of the USSR--Lenin and Stalin, the rise of Nazi Germany, of more tyrants was a direct result. The Armenian Genocide and the Soviet mass murders are less known than the Holocaust--but all spun from the war that started July 28, 1914. May all the dead rest in peace. Let us tell the gods of war, "NO MORE!"
