Not a particularly well informed article as the writer seems to be unaware of such basic facts as to how many countries were officially "neutral" citing only Sweden missing the other countries beginning with S and a few others besides! The point is also missed that WW2 was a clash of ideological beligerents effectively by mutual consent and was not as in the case of Iraq or Afghanistan imposed from outside but activated from within Europe before engulfing most of the world! And of course the US was late to that party as it was in WW1! A better point to make would perhaps be the general futility of war and violence as a means of achieving anything! The perpetual killing of civilians and destruction of infrastructure probably has a far greater impact on global warming for example than al the farting cows and muck belching road vehicles put together! War is actually not healthy but makes loads of corporations wealthy!
