"Hidden for 100 years, the astonishing photos by 16-year-old soldier shows how his brothers-in-arms would forever be haunted by the spectre of defeat

...taken by Walter Kleinfeldt who joined a German gun crew in 1915 and fought at the Somme aged just 16. As his haunting pictures, taken with a Contessa camera, make all too clear, life in the trenches was a harrowing experience. The images provide an insight into the epic machinery of war – and capture the darkest moments of battle, with bodies strewn among the rubble.

    Politician hide themselves away, they always start the war

    Why don't they go out to fight, they leave that up to the poor

    My ism, it's full of beliefs.

    You got it half-right. The wars indeed are fought by the poor, but on behalf of the rich, not necessarily politicians. The overlap is great, but not total. A politician who is not a part of plutocracy has every reason to oppose the war, which is why it is imperative to nudge our political system in the direction where wealth affects the policy as little as possible.
