That was a logical move when, you know, there was this world war. I think now the message is, this is a global franchise, this is a franchise looking to the future, and that kind of ethnonationalism, you know, perhaps is not the right style going forward.

The border World War I refers to -- the Turkish-Syria border -- was established in 1923 with the Treaty of Lausanne and the founding of the Republic of Turkey. The exception to this is the province of Hatay, which passed from Syrian to Turkish control following a referendum.

Defacing it by taking the arms off or anything of that nature -- it's just a slap in the face for World War I veterans, i don't see how a static cross can coerce anybody into a state religion.

World War I was a horrific, terrible war that affected really everybody -- certainly affected us, and not to make a little bit of an effort to get to a very important ceremony was wrong. And I'm disappointed and I'm sorry that he didn't do it.

Shulkin may not be a veteran, but he does come from a military family. He was born on a military base in Illinois and his father was an Army physiatrist, according to the Military Times. Both of his grandfathers served during World War I, one of whom was also the chief pharmacist at the VA in Madison, Wisconsin. Hailing from a military family has sensitized me to the psychological and medical needs of those who served our country.

Some cemeteries could be good places for these monuments because there they are just meant to commemorate the dead and not honor an unjust cause, there are cemeteries in Germany where the dead from World War I and World War are buried and there is more about remembering those who died while not harkening back to the cause.

The intent was to stop the cycle of violence into an area that even in World War II chemical weapons were not used on battlefields, even in the Korean War, they were not used on battlefields. Since World War I, there has been an international convention on this and to stand idly by when the convention is violated -- that is what we had to take action on recently in our own vital interest.

We’re living in the most dangerous period of history in our nation, it wasn’t the Civil or Revolutionary Wars or World War I or II that were the most dangerous — that time is now. We’re fighting the war within, the moral war. If Christians don’t stand up now we’re going to lose — and we’re going to lose big.

The battle for the mind of Ronald Reagan was like the trench warfare of World War I: never have so many fought so hard for such barren terrain.

We must never forget, that under modern conditions of life, science, and technology. All war has been greatly brutalized, and that no one who joins in it, even in self-defense, can escape becoming also in a measure brutalized. Modern war cannot be limited in its destructive method and the inevitable debasement of all participants… A fair scrutiny of the last two World Wars makes clear the steady intensification of the weapons and methods employed by both, the aggressors and the victors. In order to defeat the Japanese aggression, we were forced, as Admiral Nimitz has stated, to employ a technique of unrestricted warfare, not unlike that which 25 years ago was the proximate cause of our entry into World War I. In the use of strategic air power the Allies took the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Germany and Japan…. We as well as our enemies have contributed to the proof that the central moral problem is war and not its methods, and that a continuance of war will in all probability end with the destruction of our civilization.
