Phonetic Spelling: (kar-dee'-ah)
Short Definition: the heart, inner life, intention
Definition: lit: the heart; mind, character, inner self, will, intention, center.
HELPS Word-studies

2588 kardía – heart; "the affective center of our being" and the capacity of moral preference (volitional desire, choice; see P. Hughs, 2 Cor, 354); "desire-producer that makes us tick" (G. Archer), i.e our "desire-decisions" that establish who we really are.

[Heart (2588 /kardía) is mentioned over 800 times in Scripture, but never referring to the literal physical pump that drives the blood. That is, "heart" is only used figuratively (both in the OT and NT.]

Records of 49,000 Irish WWI dead in new digital archive
Project developed by Google and DFA is important for remembering soldiers - Gilmore
Fri, Jan 10, 2014, 14:44 Updated: Fri, Jan 10, 2014, 14:47

A new archive launched today lists the 49,000 soldiers from the island of Ireland who died during the First World War or as a result of wounds sustained during battle.
...
Mr McGuinness said the fact that over 200,000 Irishmen fought in the war and over 49,000 were killed showed the human impact of the war on the island of Ireland.

?It is important all their personal stories are told and this innovative project ensures the memory of those Irish soldiers killed will continue,? he said.

St Canice?s Cathedral and Round Tower are an essential part of the structural heritage in the vibrant medieval city of Kilkenny in the heart of  Ireland's Ancient East . This ecclesiastical site was founded in the 6th century and named after St Canice. Cill Channigh is the Gaelic for the Church of Canice, the church that originally stood on the site in the 6th century.
 Combining the early Christian settlement, the Round Tower, the Anglo Norman Cathedral and its rich cultural ecclesiastical heritage makes St Canice?s Cathedral and its environs a must to visit while you are in Kilkenny.

Worship has taken place at this site for over 800 years. The Cathedral has wonderful stained glass that includes two windows from the Harry Clarke Studio, Dublin. Local stone masters The O?Tooneys carved some of the tombstones many of which are unique to the Cathedral and Kilkenny. The See Chair of the Bishop of Ossory dating back to 1120 can be seen inside the Cathedral.

Saint Cainnech of Aghaboe (515/16?600), also known as Saint Canice in Ireland, Saint Kenneth in Scotland, Saint Kenny and in Latin Saint Canicus, was an Irish abbot, monastic founder, priest and missionary during the early medieval period. Cainnech is one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland[1] and preached Christianity across Ireland and to the Picts in Scotland.[2] He wrote a commentary on the Gospels, which for centuries was known as the Glas-Choinnigh or Kenneth's Lock or the Chain of Cainnech

Speech transcript

3367 Private William Samuel Outlaw, 53rd Battalion
KIA 19 July 1916

No photograph in collection

Story delivered 7 November 2013

Today we remember and pay tribute to Private William Samuel Outlaw.

William Outlaw was born in Newtown, Sydney, the son of William and Blanche Outlaw. He attended Canterbury Public School and then began work as a carter for a grocery in the same district. He was also well acquainted with military service, having spent one year as a senior cadet and three years with the militia forces as a signaller. He enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force in August 1915 and, after a period of training in Australia, was sent overseas with the 11th reinforcements to the 2nd Battalion.

Outlaw arrived in Egypt at a time when the AIF was undergoing a period of reorganisation and training following the evacuation of Gallipoli. As a part of this process, he was transferred to the 53rd Battalion and sent to France.

On 19 July the 53rd Battalion took part in their first major operation on the Western Front - the ill-fated attack on the French village of Fromelles. When the battle was over, the Australian 5th Division, of which the 53rd Battalion was a part, had suffered 5,533 casualties and could not fight again for many months. Even assessing the number of casualties took months, as many men were initially reported wounded or missing, and it was not known if they had been killed or were taken prisoner.

One of those men was Private William Outlaw. He was originally reported wounded and missing, having last been seen very badly hit and lying in the German trenches. He never appeared on the lists of prisoners coming from Germany, and it was eventually determined that he had been killed in action. He was 23.

William's father died in 1922, but his mother, sisters, and brother regularly put notices in the Sydney Morning Herald for many years to commemorate their son and brother who "shouldered his gun in honour's cause".

His name is listed on the Roll of Honour on my right, along with more than 60,000 others from the First World War.

This is but one of the many stories of courage and sacrifice told here at the Australian War Memorial. We now remember Private William Samuel Outlaw, and all of those Australians who have given their lives in the service of our nation.

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Interesting how the Ottoman Empire was involved 100 years ago ...

Battle of Gallipoli
Published on Oct 20, 2013

i dont own this film, all richts go to discovery channel, i only uploaded it for educational purposes
The Gallipoli Campaign, also known as the Dardanelles Campaign or the Battle of Gallipoli or the Battle of ?anakkale (Turkish: ?anakkale Savaşı), took place on the Gallipoli peninsula (Gelibolu in modern Turkey) in the Ottoman Empire between 25 April 1915 and 9 January 1916, during World War I. Aiming to secure a sea route to Russia, the British and French launched a naval campaign to force a passage through the Dardanelles. After the naval operation, an amphibious landing was undertaken on the Gallipoli peninsula, to capture the Ottoman capital of Constantinople (Istanbul).[6] After eight months the land campaign also failed with many casualties on both sides, and the invasion force was withdrawn to Egypt.
The campaign was one of the greatest Ottoman victories during the war and is considered a major failure of the Allies. In Turkey, it is perceived as a defining moment in the nation's history?a final surge in the defence of the motherland as the Ottoman Empire crumbled. The struggle formed the basis for the Turkish War of Independence and the founding of the Republic of Turkey eight years later under Mustafa Kemal Atat?rk, a commander at Gallipoli. The campaign is often considered to mark the birth of national consciousness in Australia and New Zealand and the date of the landing, 25 April, is known as "Anzac Day". It remains the most significant commemoration of military

WWI was an Internationalist war NOT a Nationalist war ...

Amazingly I found that it is now a downloadable google book (I don't know what this "volume three" is about, it's just one book):
And what's nice is it has two sets of really great photos on pages 84 and 196

I remember as a teenager when I first found this book in a used book store and looking at this and thinking I found gold.
I wish I still had that copy. oh well....

Merchants of death: a study of the international armament industry, Volume 3 By Helmuth Carol Engelbrecht, Frank Cleary Hanighen - 1934 

like this one: (remember this was published in 1933/1934!)


160,000 Nazi troops -- armed? Hitler received funds from directors of Skoda, a subsidiary of Schnieder-Creusot

Notice the connection of Scheider to Vickers:


from the book:

http://www.yamaguchy.com/library/merchants/merchant_01.html
Hitler has now become the symbol of the return of German militarism .  Even before he managed to obtain supreme power there was speculation as to his financial backers .  Obviously they included German industrialists fearful of socialism, communism, and the labor unions, nationalists smarting under the “insults” of the Versailles treaty, and a host of other discontented folk .  But on the list of these contributors supplying funds to the Hitler movement were the names of two capitalists—Von Arthaber and Von Duschnitz—directors of Skoda, the great armament firm of Germany’s neighbor and enemy, Czechoslovakia .

Interlocking directorates are a familiar phenomenon in the United States .  The real controller of industries is frequently found in the most unexpected places .  In Europe the same system prevails .  And so it appears that Messrs. Von Arthaber and Von Duschnitz represent a firm which is controlled by still another firm .  The head of this holding company is neither German nor Czech .  He is a French citizen, M. Eugene Schneider, president of the Schneider-Creusot Company which for a century has dominated the French arms industry and which through its subsidiaries now controls most of the important arms factories in Central Europe

Some of Hitler’s financial support, then, was derived from a company owned by a leading French industrialist and arms maker .2

Arms merchants also own newspapers and mold public opinion .  M. Schneider is more than just president of Creusot .  He is the moving spirit of another great combine, the Comité des Forges .  This French steel trust through one of its officers has controlling shares in the Paris newspaper Le Temps, the counterpart of The New York Times, and the Journal des Débats, which corresponds to the New York Herald Tribune .  These two powerful papers constantly warn their readers of the “danger of disarmament” and of the menace of Germany .  Thus M. Schneider is in a position to pull two strings, one linked to Hitler and German militarism, the other tied to the French press and French militarism


Here is a review of the book and another download source:
http://mises.org/resources/3373


Here is the archetype of all post-World War I revisionism of a particular variety: the hunt for the people who made the big bucks off the killing machine. The Merchants of Death was, in many ways, the manifesto of a generation of people who swore there would not be and could not be another.

But here is the kicker: it was co-authored by the founder of Human Events, the conservative weekly. So this is no left-wing screed against profiteering. It is a careful and subtle, but still passionate, attack on those who would use government to profit themselves at the expense of other people's lives and property.

Here is a sample of the ideological orientation: "The arms industry did not create the war system. On the contrary, the war system created the arms industry.... All constitutions in the world vest the war-making power in the government or in the representatives of the people.

The root of the trouble, therefore, goes far deeper than the arms industry. It lies in the prevailing temper of peoples toward nationalism, militarism, and war, in the civilization which forms this temper and prevents any drastic and radical change.

Only when this underlying basis of the war system is altered, will war and its concomitant, the arms industry, pass out of existence."

Thus is this book a wonderful example of what Rothbard called the "Old Right" in its best form. The book not only makes the case against the war machine. It provides a scintillating history of war profiteering, one authoritative enough for citation and academic study. One can see how this book had such a powerful effect.

Why re-release this book now? The war profiteers are making money as never before. They are benefiting from conflict as never before. Everything in this book has not only come to pass but as been made worse by a million times. So this treatise is more necessary than ever.

Again, this is the real heritage of the American right. 
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

For Serbs was a NATIONALIST war. For Defense and Liberation.
Empire in dying, Austro-Hungary attacked Serbia ( 1908. Vienna illegal annexed  Bosnia ).
