I’ll donate three months’ salary to the war! No, no, no

Within minutes of the entry into force of the ceasefire agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan, fighting between the two sides resumed, with each side accusing the other of having broken the ceasefire agreement in the first place.

However, judging from the current situation, the two sides still have no intention to expand the conflict, and at the most, the opposing sides are at odds with each other. As for why the ceasefire agreement was signed, I believe we can all see it – both sides can’t stand it any longer.

The first is that both sides say the other side has suffered 2,000 to several hundred casualties, and the loss of armored vehicles is in the range of one to two hundred. This is a war that is seen as a “pecking order”, but the losses are not small.

Considering the stockpiles of military equipment and the consumption of advanced weapons of both sides, if the conflict continued, after a month, the mobile forces of both sides might only rely on trucks to maneuver.

Both sides are well aware of this, which is why they declared a ceasefire. But the conflict, which was caused by historical grievances between the two sides, has spread to the whole world through modern and developed social networks. It was as if people had watched a live broadcast of the war.

The cruelty of war has also been shown to the world.

In one of the most famous clips, an Armenian soldier cries in his trench after being scared by the shelling of the battlefield, and a soldier who goes to support him also gets shot and falls to the ground.

After an Azerbaijani tank was scrapped, six soldiers ran desperately through the rain of bullets, three of them being swept to the ground in quick succession.

There was a bottle of unfinished drink next to the body of an Azerbaijani soldier who had been killed, and the netizens left a message, “The drink is still incomplete, and I didn’t know it would end like this when I bought it”.

The war has also affected the civilian population. Both sides fired rockets at each other’s cities to vent their anger.

Anyone who’s car gets blown up like that has to suffer, right?

The people are innocent.

In fact, the military weapons bacteria are trying to use this Asian-Arab conflict to talk about the cruelty of war. Some may ask, what is the point of talking about this? There is actually some reality to it.

In reality, there are always some fanatics who advocate war, shouting at every turn, as if the war is like child’s play. There is a good saying: only those who have not experienced war will long for war.

The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you have a good understanding of the situation.

But if you shouldn’t fight, you don’t have to fight. Because war is piled up with money, human life, the happiness of the people, and even the fate of the country, together with the war end, no one can be immune.

But history has shown that it is often the people who most love to wage war, encouraged by fanatical nationalist sentiments.

In World War I, for example, although many people subconsciously blamed the upper aristocracy for Germany’s aggressive expansion, it was actually the German middle class, and especially the general public, who incited nationalism most gleefully, welcoming the war. This is surprising and perverse.

After the reunification of Germany, nationalist sentiments rose in all strata of society, and the media preached “geopolitics”, “living space theory”, “the theory of the superiority of races”, and “the theory of the inferiority of races”. “Determinism by force”, etc., the theme of which was that the Germans were the most superior people, destined to dominate the world. This nationalist sentiment, deliberately cultivated by the government and interpreted by scholars in books, legitimized this insane pretension, which later became the ideological basis for the rise of the Nazis in Germany.

In August 1914, when World War I broke out in full force, German society as a whole displayed an extraordinary degree of patriotic fervor and nationalistic sentiment.

Propaganda advocating national hatred was everywhere, and thunderous postcards of all kinds soon filled the streets: “One shot for a Russian!” “Stab a Frenchman to death!” “Stomp an Englishman to death!” The people were eager to sign up and enlist in the army.

After the war was declared, the German people celebrated the start of the war as a holiday, and the streets and squares were thronged with people caught up in the frenzy of war. This phenomenon was called “Ulla patriotism”.

What is “Ula patriotism”? “Ulla” means the cry of the battlefield. Later, “Ulla” became the prescribed slogan of the Prussian army as it marched in formation. In the late nineteenth century, the word “ula” became associated with patriotic sentiments and appeared frequently in patriotic poetry.

The term “ura patriotism” was coined to explain the unbelievable “passion for war” displayed by the Germans after the outbreak of the First World War.

Only the outbreak of the First World War was embraced with enthusiasm by all strata of society. The public opinion expressed not justified fear but euphoria in complete contrast to social, psychological and historical expectations.

This nationalist-inspired militancy existed to a greater or lesser extent in other countries as well. At the outbreak of World War I in August 1914, in many European capitals, people spontaneously took to the streets to celebrate, including far from militaristic Britain, London’s Trafalgar Square was actually thunderous with joy.

And yet the result?

As a result of the war, Europe was left in ruins and devastation, and those who suffered the loss of life and property were people with an extreme sense of national pride.

In the case of Germany, with its sea power controlled by Britain and completely blockaded, there was an acute shortage of goods at home. Fresh fruit, liquor, silk clothing and shoes were the first to disappear from the shops, followed closely by eggs, white bread, meat and lard.

In 1916, with the war in its third year, even potatoes, flour and coal became scarce, and many civilians had to rely on cranberries to get through the winter.

In the end, Germany had to declare a state of war control and introduce food rationing, which was simply not enough for everyone to eat their daily ration. In the last two years of the war, as many as 850,000 people died of hunger and malnutrition in Germany.

In 1917, German workers went on strike more than 500 times, with 1.5 million workers participating in strikes.

On November 9, 1918, workers and soldiers in the German capital, Berlin, broke out in an uprising and occupied government offices, including the railway station and the post office. Kaiser Wilhelm II was forced to abdicate and hurriedly fled to the Netherlands, bringing down the once formidable German Empire.

On November 11, 1918, Germany announced its unconditional surrender, thus ending World War I. The German government was forced to abdicate and fled to the Netherlands, where the German Empire was destroyed.

This was the end of World War I. It has the meaning of “Success is Xiao He, defeat is Xiao He”.

In fact, this also shows that the most direct victims of the war, in addition to those soldiers at the front, there are people at the rear.

But the surrender was like a bolt from the blue to those fanatical German nationalists. When Hitler learned of Germany’s surrender, he was being treated for an eye injury in the hospital.

The first time I heard about the surrender, Hitler was so stupid that I felt like the sky was going to collapse.

The first time I saw it, I thought it would be a good idea for me to go back to my hometown,” he said.

But then Hitler also understood why Germany lost the war. In his own book, Hitler’s Second Book, he wrote that if patriotism required a tax increase, there would be only a handful of patriots.

But he doesn’t seem to have learned his lesson. The Second World War, which he single-handedly brewed, was actually very similar to the First World War in terms of fervent nationalist sentiment at home.

On 18 February 1943, Hitler’s henchman Goebbels delivered his famous incendiary speech “On Total War”. It bluntly began with “The German people, educated and trained in National Socialism, can bear the whole truth” and ended with Theodore Köhner’s poem “The Nation Stands and the Storm Disappears”, to thunderous applause.

But the intention of tying the people to the war is itself wishful thinking.

When the end of the Third Reich comes in the film “The Fall of the Empire”, Goebbels cries out: we did not force the German people, they gave us the right to do so, and now they will pay the price.

“The hypocrisy of the politicians is well known, the hypocrisy of the people is indistinguishable.” People long for war when they haven’t experienced it, but when they experience the cruelty of war, the people will understand what war is, but it is too late.

The brutal memories of war are actually not far from us.

Take the nearest Vietnam self-defense counterattack war, for example. Previously, the military military subdivision had an issue of tweets is “folk real battlefield information, the war against Vietnam in the fathers of those life and death experiences”, from Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, the netizen “to save the memory” and we share a heartbreaking story.

Our village had a soldier from the Vietnam War who was in charge of ammunition delivery in the field. I heard they only had two men left in one squad! He himself was always delirious and crazy because of the shrapnel injury to his brain. The one thing you do every day, rain or shine, is to carry a box and run all over the village. The face revealed extremely frightening, even family members do not dare to approach. 2014 when the serious illness died, shouting before death: class leader sorry I did not carry up ……

In one short vignette, the enormous trauma the war has inflicted on myself and my loved ones who lived through it leaps off the page. The ten foot images are moving.

One of the few films in the country that reflects on war, “Wreath Under the Mountain,” is also about the sacrifice of soldiers and the great trauma it causes to their families and comrades.

Those soldiers who sacrificed their lives as sons, husbands, fathers, brothers, brothers-in-law and friends ……

“I’ll donate three months’ salary to the war!” No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
In one scene, the company commander’s death notice is delivered to a grieving mother and her new-born wife in a rural village in Yimeng Mountain, Shandong Province. Who would want such a notice of death to be delivered to their own home?

I rarely watch movies that move me very deeply, but I always get involuntarily sore eyes when I watch Wreath Under the Mountain, which is the best anti-war movie in the country right now, bar none.

In fact, folks all over the world treat death notices the same way. In the book “Fall of Giants” about the First World War, after the Battle of the Somme, which caused 1.3 million casualties, the British postman carried a big canvas bag in the small town of Aberowen to deliver the death notice from house to house, everyone came out to look at the postman in fear, the postman went to which house, which house would be incredibly depressed and whispered painful tears. Hundreds of young men died in such a battle, and thus, for the first time in hundreds of years, all the denominations across faiths worshipped together to overtake the dead.

It was the saddest resonance of all.

To write this is to explain that war is really no child’s play, and when it is fought, it can destroy the happiness of millions of people.

There’s fear in your eyes.

Once in a taxi, chatting with the driver master, talking about India, he was very excited, said he had to fight, fight I absolutely donate three months salary clouds.

I suddenly felt that this actually represents the mindset of many people. We can’t deny that these people’s intentions are good and patriotic, but it’s really not wise to talk lightly about war.

Once again anti-bar: of course, it is not that we are bullied by others have to be stoic, the fight or have to fight, after all, now we really hard waist.
