Callum McKenzie has some interesting comments about the ANZAC day, which is a half day holiday commemorating Australia-New-Zealand soldiers who were killed during the World War I in an attempt to invade Turkey. Traditionally the commemorations centre around Gallipoli on the coast of Turkey.
Directly quoting him in what he said:
Even as the veterans of World War I have died, and as those from World War II dwindle, the commemorations have grown in size. However, I do not partake. If I did, I would be told about "gallant soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice", and I object to this. They were killed while doing something extremely stupid. Australia and New Zealand should not have been trying to fight a war in Europe, let alone invading Turkey. World War I was pointless in the first place, doubly so for a group of people on the far side of the world.
I think I fully agree with him. Go get to his site for more.
