PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
Do the male of the species really want their own children to be put through the horror and suffering of war during their own lifetimes?
The Gallipoli Campaign, also known as the Dardanelles Campaign, the Battle of Gallipoli or the Battle of Çanakkale (Turkish: Çanakkale Savaşı) was a campaign of World War I that took place on the Gallipoli peninsula (Gelibolu in modern Turkey) in the Ottoman Empire between 25 April 1915 and 9 January 1916. The peninsula forms the northern bank of the Dardanelles, a strait that provided a sea route to the Russian Empire, one of the Allied powers during the war. Intending to secure it, Russia's allies Britain and France launched a naval attack followed by an amphibious landing on the peninsula, with the aim of capturing the Ottoman capital of Constantinople (modern Istanbul). The naval attack was repelled and after eight months' fighting, with many casualties on both sides, the land campaign was abandoned and the invasion force was withdrawn to Egypt.

JMC: Spotlight shows here a charming caring environment. Is this exactly the part of Britain we have lost? Has Westminster denied us this? Have some male governments long since removed the true meaning of caring?
JMC: A good job some politicians/lawyers don’t get involved in
training racehorses. No way would they ever get their runners to the racecourse
in time, leave alone prepare and get their horses to the paddock or to the starting gate on time.
