I know,most people will never learn. They just remember the sad times, but carry on making the same mistakes.

I have been to a War Museum in London, but not sure if it is the one you
reference. Very worthwhile. My uncle was in Patton's army, in the fuel
brigade and his stories of his time in France is hair raising. Then I have an
uncle who is buried in France, he died at the Maignot line (you know, that area in France the French said the Nazis would never cross - hmm.)

What I find most disturbing now is how the American political elite don't seem to have a problem cozing up to the Iran president - he seems to me that he is as dangerous as Hitler was. And the American population seems to be uncaring about the whole thing.
