Since the elderly across the world seem hellbent on stopping trade between countries, electing dictators, and promoting a warlike stance I have a suggestion – in the next war, the elderly should be drafted first and put on the front lines first.
They are the most expendable as most are retired and don’t contribute to the world.
Historically it has always been old men sending youth to fight and die. It’s their turn now.
I bet if all countries agreed to a draft the elderly first law, you would see an instant cessation of all war. All of these warhawks are full of hot air and will pipe down when it is their own mottled behinds at risk.
Also I highly recommend this book https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Man’s_War
