After the week we have had in the UK with all the rioting and violence, it might seem odd to be publishing an article about war, but I’ve published today’s article by Dr Jeffrey Lant, CEO Worldprofit for a reason, well a couple actually.
The first reason is that I thought I already knew a good bit about history but I am learning so much more by reading Dr Lant’s articles, that I wanted to just publish this anyway. I generally do a little more research before publishing these articles and find out all sorts of information I didn’t know before.
Secondly, this article today, which Dr Lant wrote on Tuesday, before he wrote the article yesterday about London burning, highlights just how easy it is for something like the assassination of Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand in June 1914, to spark hugely significant historic events. Events which lead to so much death and destruction.
The parallel for me this week is that the shooting of a man in London on Saturday evening, led to so much destruction and riots in London and other British cities, culminating in deaths and serious injuries.
Thankfully, in the civilised world at least, these sort of things do not generally result in war anymore, but the threat is always present. It is a tragedy that in some parts of the world, the same cannot be said and even the smallest difference of, usually, religious views can spark acts of terrorism and ultimately war.
