WAR !

On this day in 1914, in Serbia, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated by Gavrilo Princip aged 19, who was supposedly working for the Black Hand Gang, who were fighting for Serbian independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

This action lead directly to the outbreak of The Great War, now known as The First World War; which in turn lead to, over zealous demands for reperation; which in turn
lead to
, wild over spending: which in turn
lead to,
The Wall Street Crash; which in turn
lead to
, The Great Depression; which in turn
lead to
, the rise of Fascism; which in turn
lead to
, the rise of the Nazis; which in turn
lead to
, The Second World War; which in turn
lead to
, The Holocaust; which in turn
lead to
, the desire for a Jewish homeland, which in turn
lead to; the invasion of Palastine, which lead to The Middle Eastern Conflict; PLO; Osama Bin Laden; Twin Towers go boom, etc. Ad bloody nueseum !

All the troubles of the world on the shoulders of one young lad.

Which supports my theory that young men are trouble & should be kept in cages !
