That's it? A couple of sentences? Men threw yellow paint on the man's house? You want comments? Maybe you should give us some background on the situation going into WWI. My grandfather from Luverne served in that war.

I think you are a young kid that is out of his / her depth and don't know what it was like pre WWI and your frame of reference is the idiocy of world affairs you have seen personally and project that it has always been that way. Big mistake.
