War can be many things, but what some people fail to realize you can be against war all you want, but its gonna happen because of the human race. Its how it is, was, and always will be. I cant say it doesnt excite me to watch the bomb cameras as the bomb is going through someones front door. Its amazing to watch. Not saying it isnt terrible, because it can be. But thinking we can become above waging war is like saying we could have won the war on drugs or poverty. It wont happen. Period. Happy thoughts are great, but they usually arent the most realistic ones.

Seems to me most wars have been fought by the super wealthy to make themselves even more wealthy. One of their many justifications is they think if they are super wealthy, everyone may have a chance of becoming wealthy and greedy like they are and living a so called "the good life". The second justification is that the super wealthy does not want to lose what they already have or what they think they have.

My interpretation only, not necessarily how it really is...

I believe in some cases that war is necessary.

The current war in Iraq and the upcoming war/wars, I find unnecessary and judge them to be simply invasion and murder for the gain of power and money.

I would really love to come out and be WAR IS HORRIBLE WAR IS EVIL. But at the same time war is inevitable so whats the point is screaming and shouting. War regardlesss of wether its for Religon, Money, or Sex(Troy lol), is a waste of reasources and human life. I tend to believe that the Rich rulers are the sole reason for War...but thats really just a cop out for the low and middle class hereto reffered to as the Soldier Class. If the Soldier class refused to fight...i mean went to jail lost everything but still refused to fight. The wars would end very quickly...atleast the BIG ones. Small conflicts would still happen from time to time.

Interesting Psycho-social anylisis....Seeing as we are ALONE. When I say alone I dont mean we are the only intellegent life. What I mean is when it comes down to it you are all alone in your head. No one will ever REALLY COMPLETELY get you. No matter how much you love her/him he wont ever get you 100%. And this is something, especially subconciously, that pertrbs many people. Its this sense of aloneness which allows us to, IMHO, kill someone to get our point across. Because the end result of any argument inqhich both sides refuse to cooperate but insist on perpetuating the argument will lead to war. This last idea was just an Opinion I dont have any hard scientific evidence to back it up...

I believe that there is a strong possibliity of open war with the Middle East Via Iran. I believe that this will come about in one of three ways.

1. Iran/Isreal attack Iran/Isreal doesnt matter who attacks who first....either one attacking the other and United States get involved.

2. United States bombs Iran(nuclear or non-nuclear doesnt matter)

3. Iran through some terrorist network cell bombs the US.

I feel that any of these are highly probable and quite possible.

If we go to OUT and OUT war with the MIddle East Russia and China will get drawn in. I dont think Russia will side with us but im not sure if they will side with China and the Middle East. China Will side with Iran along With North Korea.

Worst Case senario probability of less than 50%.....Mad Max situation envelops this planet and civilization is thrown back half a mellenia.

Best case senario Iran doesnt go after Nukes Bush and Blair get impeached. We start following Venzuela's lead. Whole World becomes Socialist....we all disarm our nukes....and start exploring the galaxy.

War is very very bad mkay? i disslike war immensily and i think that those who take part in it should be shipped off to an island full of war mongers where they have noone. maybie they would all kill each other but that would be good i guess.

Are we really that blind? the anti-chirst is already here on earth ppl, the 2 wars were his doings, and the next is on its way real soon. War should be banned globally. why not use the money to help the ppl around the world, heck just a few percent of it should be more than enough. f***ing gits and screw-ups. U shall rot in h*ll for eternity.

but then again it could just be entertain and management of more wealth by the superwealthy...

While I respect B H's opinion, I don't subscribe to that judgement of the current war.

I feel that when Saddam surrendered in 1991, he agreed to the coalitions terms of surrender, which included regular arms inspections. In the surrender terms he signed, he agreed that refusing inspections would return his nation to a state fo war versus the coalition.

If we hadn't gone in, we'd have disemboweled the UN and NATO. No dictator would ever abide by his cease-fire terms, ever again. Napoleon pulled the same stuff in 1815 that Saddam did in 1998, and the Germans did in 1933. Each instance, repudiating the original surrender terms.

In 1815, the world went to war to crush Napoleon, and did it quickly and decisively. France joined the community of nations.

In 1933-38, the world pretended hitler didn't exist. But eventually he forced them to act. As bloody as invading Iraq has been, it will have kept a future dictator from repudiating his surrender/armistice terms with the world.

A war is just as long as it can be expected to alleviate future inevitable bloodshed.

Which shows that the US should have gone to war for Hungary in 1956. We failed that nation then, and 10's of thousands died. And the USSR lived on for another 40 years.

We failed the people of former Yugoslavia, by allowing Serbia to try its hand at genocide. Was anything gained by procrastinating? Only that Slobodan had time to rachet up the body count before we intervened.

I know that the left truly believes that the Iraq war is for profit. But it hasn't helped the world oil market, and wasn't expected to.

Any way. that's my thoughts.
