    “The War to End All Wars”

    They sure got that wrong.

    My maternal Grandfather was in WW-1. He got lung damage from possibly mustard gas. He spent his entire life as a sharecropper in Shannon Mississippi, with a small pension.

    Did this happen in France ? My mothers uncle suffered gas poisoning. He was a Iowa coal miner. I never remember him being healthy.

    It still happens to this day.....Gassing people, even your own people. Assad of Syria was the latest...Hussian of late Iraq. Iran is said to have it all.....
    Google Mustard gas.
    One of the reasons the US Military, has not left Iraq(20K Troops) and Afghanistan is to collect the hidden NBC Stuff.
    Nuclear, Biological, and Chem Warfare stuff.
    There are still CIA and US Troops in Libya, trying to get all the AA missiles, that hillbill and berry soretoro gave to the Muslim Brotherhood.
    WMD's spread all through the ME 2008-2017.....
    You can't start 13 Civil Wars without some US Arms..........Ever notice that Iran did not have a civil war????

    Gas WW1

    The small house we lived in when moving to a small logging town, was previously owned by an elderly couple. The husband had been gassed in France and had passed away. His wife told us he had been miserable for sometime. He could never lay down because his lungs would fill up with crud and he couldn't breathe. He had to sit up and got very little sleep for years. While sitting up one night he had a. heart attack.

    While living in that house we often thought about him and what his wife had to endure.
