A Nation In An Eternal War.

      On this day, September 3rd. 1939, Britain declared war on Germany, and the Macabre scene of blood and death washed across the world until 1945, then we were told peace reigned. Sadly Britain has been at war more or less continuously before that date, and ever since that horrendous event 1939-1945.
Imperialism at work.
     You may disagree with the names of some of these conflicts, but they were incidents where British imperialism shed the blood of its own citizens and the blood of those from other countries.
