Please help. Which parts of this excerpt from "Editha" by William Dean Howells denote the meaninglessness of war? "No, girls don't; women don't, when they give their men up to their country. They think they'll come marching back, somehow, just as gay as they went, or if it's an empty sleeve, or even an empty pantaloon, it's all the more glory, and they're so much the prouder of them, poor things!" The tears began to run down Editha's face; she had not wept till then; but it was now such a relief to be understood that the tears came "No, you didn't expect him to get killed,"

"You just expected him to kill someone else, c. some of those foreigners, that weren't there because they had any say about it, but because they had to be there, poor wretches D. You thought it would be all right for my George, your George, to kill the sons of those miserable mothers and the husbands of those girls that you would never see the faces of." E. I thank my God they killed him first, and that he ain't livin' with their blood on his hands!"
