Aggression in Europe - Then and Now!

One hundred years ago yesterday, the then U.S. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan met with diplomats in Washington DC to present his plan for world peace, with the provision that all controversies between nations had to be submitted for investigation before a war could be declared.

Why was such a plan rejected, Germany clearly intended war just as today they are clearly pursuing the economic domination of Europe? Why did the soon to be invaded other nations of Europe let that threat continue to develop? Why are our Leaders doing nothing to disband the EU, the instrument of German hegemony, today?

Earlier that same month a Zeppelin spying on French border defences had run out of fuel and was repatriated. War preparations abounded but the British Admiralty were sending confusing signals to Germany about possible neutrality in the event of an invasion of France. The Entente Cordiale was vague on the matter. On Anzac Day it is fitting to read of events at the opening of hostilities in the Med at the outset of hostilities, to which this blog will frequently return, as the awful centenary dates come along.
