    August 15 will be the 73rd anniversary of VJ Day.

    It will be a fitting day to think about the horrors of the most terrible war in the history of the world. We should consider as well the current atmosphere of militarism in the world. War is not glorious. It's foul. It kills many and reduces the quality of life for all.

    The following videos tell a sad tale.

    Oh my, How time flies. I think most of us were surprised that Japan was so involved.

    And Hitler on the other side of the world. Of course, we all knew that.

    The irony is... the "victors" also lost WW2.
