A GERMAN OBJECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916
A GERMAN OBJECTIVE. The Germans appear to have many objectivcs in view in continuii3gI their ruthless submarine outrages. It is of course in accord with their policy of "frightfulness"-the policy of winning war by committing deeds that excite horror and dread in the minds of their enemies. It is the method of the savage, and contrary to the accepted ideas of civilised warfare. It extends the war to non combatants, to private property, and to even hospital ships. Sub *marines are of immense service to Germany in pursuit of their cam paign of "frightfulness." but sub marine warfare has an additional purpose-the blockade of Britain. Thanks to the vigilance, the in genuity. and the courage of the men of the British Navy, the submarine menace has been effectively dealt .yith in the waters in the imme diate neighbourhood of the British Isles. The naval authorities have never indicated the number of eiiemy submarines they have de Atroyed or captured. They have reasons for maintaining the s...
