they see ALL
I'm not sure what your intent was in saying that there will never be 100% world peace, that's obvious. With approx 6-7 billion people on this
earth, for all to be living together in harmony would be quite a miracle and highly unlikely.
That said...are you saying that we shouldn't even bother? Should we point out all of our differences and continuously butt heads with one other?
Think what that would be like if no one even bothered, is the only way to peace through force? Sure sometimes but how long can you force something
to be peaceful? Honestly we can't control everyone else's actions all of the time with force. Yes sometimes war is very necessary, but it
shouldn't be abused and should only be used for defense. Don't we hold those same standards for all other countries? The US should at least
lead by example, as the most powerful country in the world we do have responsibilities. It really bothers me that some people take war so
lightly...go read some ATS war threads, people are getting all excited switching statistics, talking smack about the enemy it's like a grown up
version of GI Joe.
Sure "100% world peace" will probably never ever happen, but we could at least try to strive for the ideal. As Wyrde pointed out earlier in
the thread we all share many similarities, if you just focus on race, culture, religion, sexuality, etc...it's as if you are trying to find ways to
divide us even more.
Call me naive or whatever but if everyone just put their ego's aside and tried to understand where the other person is coming from we'd all start to
make some progress. Sure it's easier said than done, but it's still possible...at least on a smaller scale.
Take ATS for example...could there be 100% peace on the boards? lol ...maybe? Not saying we won't disagree with each other, it's inevitible, but
we could do w/o the sexism, racism, religion bashing, atheist bashing, gay bashing...etc. It's really pointless and adds NOTHING to the
discussion except putting each party on the defensive.
