THE COST OF WAR

"The Cost of War" a meme by David Settino Scott - 2015
I decided to celebrate this Memorial Day by creating a meme to express my feelings about the unacceptable cost of war. Mother Earth didn't come with any political borders and, in my opinion, there shouldn't be any. Humans need to learn that we are all in the same boat: a small and fragile boat upon the great sea of the cosmos. If we are going to survive as a race we must pull together all of our collective powers and resources to expand our reaches into the heavens. Waging war only serves to deplete our precious dwindling resources as well as our most precious commodity - human spirit. I don't think it should be necessary to point out the absurdity of killing each other in the name of our respective gods, but it appears there is still a lot of that going on. Let us discourage our young from becoming soldiers when what we really need are explorers.

  2. After Transjordan, the Arab country most involved in the first Arab-Israeli war was Egypt. Unfortunately for the Arab effort, Retro Jordans,Egyptian troops were often poorly led and badly supplied, reducing the effectiveness of their contribution. A variety of other Arab states also participated but tended to limit their involvement in actual combat. The Iraqis, who had generated some of the toughest rhetoric on the war, did little in the way of fighting, with their primary contribution being the occupation of defensive positions on the West Bank. Baghdad was also exceptionally unsupportive of King Abdullah in this instance, despite being ruled by a friendly Hashemite dynasty. While Iraq had a strong grudge against Palestinian leader Haj Amin Husseini for supporting a 1941 coup attempt to oust the Iraqi monarchy, Jordans for sale,Iraqi leaders also recognized that their own population was deeply pro-Palestinian and recoiled at suspected Transjordanian plans to annex any portion of the country that was kept out of Jewish hands.10 Military coordination between Iraq and Transjordan suffered as a result of this situation.

    On the northern front, Syrian forces participated in fighting south of the Sea of Galilee, but tended to avoided major conflict during the latter part of the war. There were a variety of reasons for this approach, one of the most important of which was the miserable relations between Amman and Damascus. authentic jordans, The Syrian leadership feared that an Arab victory in Palestine would lead to the expansion of Transjordan authority into whatever Palestinian territory was kept out of Israeli hands, dramatically increasing the power of their rival in Amman. In a similar manner, Lebanon assembled a small expeditionary force which gained some territory at the beginning of the war but was then rapidly pushed back into defensive positions by the Israelis.
