Re: Editorial cartoon (April 2)
This political cartoon is, perhaps unintentionally, an appropriate tribute to the wisdom of the German people. Perhaps no others on the planet have acquired, through bitter experience, a better understanding of the evil of militarism. The fact that we are badgering them to forget the lessons of the past indicates just how low we have sunk.
For a brief time in our history, when we actually acted like a sovereign nation, we understood that it was important to keep peace, not make war. Unfortunately that era has passed.
As members of that club of Dr. Strangeloves that NATO has now become, we are doomed to be forever killing because after all, we know best.
