From our President

Wars create hatred and refugees amongst other things. They are not a good idea for most people and often only lead on to the next conflict (World War I neatly slides into World War II.). Deaths are often monumental. If present population numbers existed in 1914 and all countries had suffered as Serbia did in the Great War, the USA would have lost 80 million souls, Germany over 15 million souls and Sunny Australia in excess of a million souls. It is hard to see many of the future wars of the Twentieth Century taking place if this carnage had thus been equally spread over 1914-1918.
