White on White Violence

Before 1914 Europe has been at the centre of the world, prominent and diverse in its almighty power and its influence covering the world. After 1945 at the end of two world wars, Europe was reduced to its small physical size, a mere peninsula at the western end of Asia.

Eventually through a small process much of it would recover and would even surpass its former prosperity but would never again gain the preposterous role of domination it had so long played in world politics before the First World War.

What caused the First World War?

Here are the step by step events that led to the First World War:

  1. On 28th June 1914, an Austrian-Hungarian Imperial and Royal Highness Archduke Frantz Ferdinand and his wife are murdered in an assassination by Serbian nationalists in Sarajevo
  2. This murder sends Austrian-Hungary into tailspin of anger over Serbia
  3. Serbian Government tries to cool down Austrian-Hungary telling them that the murder will be investigated and the murderers will be brought to book
  4. Austrian-Hungary still boiling in anger refuses this suggestion and tells Serbia that they will conduct their own investigations about the murder of their leader
  5. But instead of conducting their own investigation Austria-Hungary invade Serbia.
  6. Russia, being an ally and friend of Serbia comes in to try to defend Serbia against Austria-Hungary invasion
  7. Germany being an ally and friend of Austria-Hungary comes in and attacks Russia.
  8. France being Russia’s ally and friend, jump in and attacks Germany to stop attacking Russia
  9. France and Germany declare war on each other
  10. Seeing all these catastrophic developments, Britain calls all these countries involved to an international convention to stop this barbaric conflict. All countries involved agree to the convention to be chaired by Britain, but Germany refuses to attend. Britain continues trying to persuade Germany for the convention
  11. While it seems heads are cooling off, Germany attacks the sleepy Belgium, bringing Belgium to its knees in blood and gore in a move calculated to disrupt the convention
  12. Britain cancels the convention and attacks Germany - this attack let to the full blown war - the First World War.

Approximately 10 million whites died in this war. Those who did not die shivered and rotted in the trenches or were disabled with amputated legs and amputated hands. And even more were breathing on gas lungs (Toxic gases pass through the lungs and into the blood and prevent the circulation and release of oxygen in the body causing respiratory irritation, sneezing, nausea, and vomiting).

And if that was not enough a vast flu pandemic in 1918 swept through the cold hungry weakened Europe killing over 30 million whites.

Including United States of America, an article in Wikipedia records statistics as even high as up to 100 million whites who died from this flu.

After the corpses were buried everyone agreed that there was never a war like this one and never again shall such a war happen, and so peace negotiations began. Unfortunately the negotiations prepared the ground not for a just lasting peace but for the Second World War, the bloodiest of all wars.

After the First World War ended, Europe found itself with two powerful victorious soldiers emerging from the war: Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Because of their success in trench war during the First World War Hitler and Mussolini were highly regarded and respected.

They were ruthless, powerful and ambitious soldiers who with their private armies behind them bulldozed and imposed themselves as leaders of their own countries.

The Second World War was ignited by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in 1939 and lasted in 1945.
