…In 1945 WWII ended. Yugoslavia lost 10% of its population… mostly in a civil war. Almost 45 years of peace followed… but then Tito died and all factions called for revenge for what was done in 1943… or 1343… and the mindless bloodbath was on again…

…Ireland has had centuries of strife… the most recent round starting about 1970 in Northern Ireland. At long last, with the exception of some absolute loons… the fighting and killing ended…

…Nobody expects anybody to forget… but there must be forgiveness… and above all else reason… otherwise there will be no end to the cycles of violence and killing. A curse on any… from any faction… who would start the evil again…
