WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
It ain't nothing but a heart-breaker
(War) It's got one friend that's The Undertaker
Oh, war, has shattered many a young man's dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much too short and precious
To spend fighting wars each day
War can't give life
It can only take it away, oh
sure is something
War never changes
Never been so much fun!

what I learned from the illiad that women start shit for their vanity.

Gunsmith here, someone built an overbuilt singleshot to test out retarded handloads.
War were declared
The ancient Greeks had the most based and enlightened take on war via The Iliad.
>War is where the fates of great men clash for ultimate glory that shakes the Earth so much that even the heavens quake and the gods take sides and watch
>But it is also where many great men fall as one of, if not the most tragic event that humans partake in
>There is great awe and triumph, honor, respect and glory, but there is also hardship, loss and destruction unapparelled to even that of the gods
Such is life.
I think the First World War kinda murdered that way of thinking about war.
>*laughs in Storm of Steel*
Artillery really removed the glorious nature people seemed to prescribe to war . Probably for the best frankly, glorifying war just gets you retards like Putin anyway.
>relates it to meme war
Lmao I knew someone would get asspained about that
Dulce et decorum est
pro patria mori
>Dulce et decorum est
>pro patria mori
The romans never witnessed days long artillery strikes that literally reshaped environments
The romans were certainly aware that war can reshape environments, but I agree with you that artillery (and to a lesser extent firearms) have rendered that particular school of thought defunct. Owen was right:
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.
>suffering in war never happened until WWI
Stop being stupid on purpose
You're referring to artillery as if cannons hadn't existed for centuries before WWI that involved blasting away entire line companies in an open fucking field as just par for the course. As if warfare from roughly 1600 to the 1900's just didn't happen?
I mean extreme religious fervor removes most logical thinking so fair enough
Already happened in the Odyssey when he goes to speak down in Hades to Achilles. TLDR its better to be a slave and alive then thr king of the underworld
