WWI was just getting started good 100 yrs ago

I like to read the old newspapers. Here is an editorial opinion on the front page of a Seattle newspaper a hundred years ago today. At that juncture WWI was just starting up and the US felt pretty safe as non combatants. Of course that would change two years and eight months later when America entered the war. And the editor would probably change his tune in order to be patriotic....and by then old Nick the Czar would have met the Russian Revolution and not thinking all that kindly about his subjects as he abdicated the thrown.

Now days we have to turn on the TV to see who we are supporting and who we are bombing today. But... at least we don't have any kings, czars, or emperors to deal with.
