Sorry I probably didn't make myself clear. I never said it was the people, it's always the governments and banksters etc who start wars.

I meant it was the same generation that started the war (the Nazi's or whoever else you believe started it) as it was who made the "big sacrifice" (the Allied armies).

It's no wonder that those who went through it saw it through the same mindset many years later, but it did bug me when it was used as an argument to berate my generation (Generation X) and our post nuclear hedonism.
