Dear MEL Topic Readers

Armistice Day: Macron and Merkel mark end of World War One

The armistice of World War I was signed on November 11, 1918, between Germany and the Allies. During the 51-month period, battles took place in and around Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and even the Pacific Islands, Eastern Asia, and Latin America. Nearly 10 million military personnel were killed and almost the same number of civilians lost their lives.

Why did it take too long time and too many lives to end the war? People should have learned that no one wins a war by then. But even after the deadliest war, another world war took place only three decades later mainly between the same nations.

At least, isn’t it mind resting to see a photo of the leaders of then enemies sitting peacefully together to remember the armistice day a century later? The sad thing is that while then US president took a big role to end the war, the incumbent US president seems to have any respect or consideration for the past and the future of other countries.

Enjoy reading the article and think why people repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
