"But what did the International Brigades actually achieve?"
If people did nothing on the basis of what they might or might not achieve the bad guys would win every time
They tried and failed - better than not trying
I know where my respect goes.
This "foreign war" bit really gets me
The matter only arises when we as a nation has nothing to gain from getting involved
As far as the people who participated were concerned, it was a war against fascism - whether that particular fight was won or lost once and for all can be judged by what's happping on the streets of the US and Britain today
Maybe it's time to turn and look the other way again
