Old wounds that have never healed
This cartoon illustrates how old feuds between nations can spark new wars. A globe with a human face wearing a top hat labeled "The Old World" suffers from two bandaged wounds: "Russia-Poland Feud" and "Balkans Feud." In the background Mars the God of War dressed as a Roman legionnaire sharpens a bloody sword while declaring "I may have to operate."
