A thought

It is April 25. Anzac Day. The 88th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings by mostly Australian, New Zealand, British and French troops in 1915. In this single failed campaign, more than a hundred and twenty thousand people died in nine months, around half of who were Allied troops and the other half Turkish. I do have some thoughts that I want to share on the subject, but I am busy because I am giving a talk this evening, and do not have time to do the subject justice.
