I noticed that World Wars are not numbered right. We already had 3 of them. Which one did we forget?
And it was caused by George Washington – by murdering a bunch of Frenchmen on a diplomatic mission in an ambush. He had 11 killed and 22 captured. France was not delighted. After that world war – in which Prussia sided with UK, for instance, and other surprising pairings – the UK AND France were sufficiently weakened for the USA to come into existence… and probably without this weakening of the French monarchy the French revolution and Napoleon wouldn’t have happened either.
Wait a moment… The Napoleonic wars… Now I gotta count again…
And if you have a whole lotta time, as I do on weekends, here’s 2.5 hours of George Washington for ya.
