And they want everyone to remember what happened back then, so that it doesn't happen again.

But it is happening. Look at the nations veering even fuhrer to the right behind authoritarian leaders, especially the leaders of two of the nations most responsible for ensuring fascism was smashed. Look up the definition of fascism. Then look at what's happening in those two nations.

It's important to remember.

After all, we learn from the lessons of history.

Or do we?

Sometimes, like these veterans say, war is a necessary evil, undertaken to destroy a scourge like Nazism.

But those who come after them don't so much learn (or forget) the lessons of history as they tend to cherry-pick them in order to bolster whatever aggression or misguided ideology they want to push. It's a shame how despite the fact that so many of these old veterans are unabashedly anti-war, the trumpet-blowers and the warmongers will ignore that and instead misuse the old guys' sacrifices to push for yet more war. And yet the politicians and the warmongers are hypocritical enough to praise these old men to the skies while they're doing it. Sickening, really.

Anyway, well done, WW2 veterans. In your time American soldiers were unequivocally on the side of the angels.

"The veterans, all the veterans of World War II, I think we saved the world,"

These men literally saved the entire world, and we should never ever forget their valor and courage.

Brave men, all of them and let's not forget the fallen but wars are to be avoided and not started but we can never allow the face of fascism and imperialism to rule the earth and must stub it out where never it raises its ugly head.

And yet the politicians and the warmongers keep on cheering to the reality TV show of war where soldiers are the new gladiators.

Look at the nations veering even fuhrer to the right behind authoritarian leaders, especially the leaders of two of the nations most responsible for ensuring fascism was smashed. Look up the definition of fascism. Then look at what's happening in those two nations.

A new holocaust occurred in Yugoslavia against Muslims, Croats, etc. under the fascist dictator Slobodan Milosevic. And a horrendous genocide occurred in Rwanda in 1994 against the Tutsis due to its fascist regime. And now look at the U.S.A. It's Hispanics. Who's next? *We must STOP this insanity!*
