Only Blood and Iron will resolve the great questions of this time

SOME 150 YEARS AGO ON THIS DAY OCTOBER 13, 1862 GERMAN CHANCELLOR OTTO VON BISMARCK GAVE HIS FAMOUS "BLOOD AND IRON" SPEECH.  TO PARAPHRASE THE MOST MEMORABLE  LINE "THE GREAT QUESTIONS OF THIS TIME WILL NOT BE RESOLVED BY SPEECHES AND MAJORITY DECISIONS BUT BY BLOOD AND IRON"!  WHAT WAS TRUE SOME 150 YEARS AGO REMAINS TRUE TODAY.   BUT MANY INCLUDING THE MAN WHO NOW SITS IN THE WHITE HOUSE REFUSE TO ACCEPT THIS REALITY AND INSTEAD INSIST ON LIVING IN THAT FAIRY TALE WORLD THAT ALWAYS ENDS WITH "THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER-AFTER".  by Ron Russell
