Who is pro-First World War?

The Toronto Sun has a headline today: "NDP MP stands firm on anti-First World War blog post".

Is someone out there pro-First World War? "Hey that would be a great idea. Let's have another First World War."

The "anti-WW1" blog post in question regrets "the thousands of poor bastards who got themselves massacred for a hill" (my translation). "Il n’y a que le « sacrifice » et la « bravoure » à célébrer." 

I'm with Prime Minister Borden on this one.He called the First World War "the suicide of civilization."  And that was before it even got started. Pretty amazing there are people who have had 99 years to think about it, and still seem to be chafing for another one.
