No. 000039 Scarlet, War War War . . . Remember, I Warned You--- the greatest moment in Art

100 years ago, today, the events in Eastern Europe quickly yanked the World into its First World War. Those events prove the meme, it is too soon to say who will ultimately prevail for American soldiers are being deployed today on one of that War's enduring fronts.

God gave use great art and artists to inform us. There is no greater moment in art than the opening scene in Gone with the Wind.

Scarlett: Fiddle-dee-dee! War, war, war; this war talk's spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream. Besides... there isn't going to be any war.
Brent Tarleton: Not going to be any war?
Stuart Tarleton: Why, honey, of course there's gonna be a war.
Scarlett: If either of you boys says "war" just once again, I'll go in the house and slam the door.
Brent Tarleton: But Scarlett, honey...
Stuart Tarleton: Don't you *want* us to have a war?
[she gets up and walks to the door, to their protestations]
Scarlett: [relenting] Well... but remember, I warned you.
