2.  Will our government
let the two countries settle their differences peacefully?The question should be will the M.I.C. let them?The arms merchants and dealers in death are a greedy group and I am sure they are already twisting the arms of our crooked congresspeople.Only last week we were preaching "Peace on earth goodwill toward men",but this week it's"Defend yourselves against your enemies".
