we are in sync,

just to clarify; when i said " those who are forced to participate on the business of war orchestrated by the owners of some countries."

its covering the pre-1950's wars. or as you correctly pointed it out as hegemonic interests.

yah, the problem with some its they tend to forget and dont care to make others suffer what their own have suffered just a few decades ago.
