Aleksandra's Note: The following comments were posted on Free Republic by Blogger DTA on the Free Republic forum. The points DTA makes are well worth noting as we near the Centennial of the Great War.
"Austro-Hungarian POWs brought typhus fever to Serbia. By the end of 1914, 200,000 Serbs were dead. The typhus fever tragedy continued into 1915. It was Austro-Hungarian WMD [Weapons of Mass Destruction] of the time.
"The Battle of Tser was the first Allied victory in WW1. It is interesting to note that no Allies are paying any attention to it.
"Perhaps it's because all the allies EXCEPT Serbia declared armistice with Germany and KUK.
"The WW1 victory was a pyrrhic victory for Serbia - 56% of the male population perished, and the industry and land were ravaged by Germany and Austria. Serbia never recovered.
"I could only imagine what kind of garbage and historical revisionism we will have to endure next year. The history of WW1 and its aftermath are reshuffled beyond recognition. It all started around 1976. By then, French books stopped mentioning the role of Serbia among the allies and gradually, the German/Austrian/Nazi view got a foothold. IMHO [In my humble opinion], it is not only an insult to the memory of the Serbs who perished, it is an insult to the memory of all Allied soldiers and seamen who fought in the Great War. The Germans and Austrians, precursors of the Nazis, won WW1 in the historical revisionism rematch."

Google Britam Syria sarin
Files from Britam Defence Ltd. are available on numerous sites online. It is known for at least 5-6 days but MSM keeps silent and Kerry continues to tell lies.
AQ terrorists now claim their release of Sarin was by accident due to mishandling (!) The question is - why they stockpiled Sarin in the first place? Who armed terrorists with WMD?
If Odumbo is trigger happy, let him bomb City of London, Ankara and Riyadh.
The reason for this is that the snooty French think everything should be about them.
You missed my point entirely. It was that “people in Western Europe and North America focus exclusively on what happened on the Western Front.” That includes the U.S., Britain, Canada and France. I don’t think I could have made it any clearer than that. Your focus on France is peculiar and perverse.
Thank you for making this excellent and true point, Stonewall Jackson.
