For starters, we've been at war for practically a century. We always find excuses to go to war. Another problem is that many politicians
profit from wars, like Dick Cheney being the CEO of Halliburton. Then there is the war propaganda used to fuel wars. Also the
innocent civilians that get killed. Then when people expose this, they get thrown into jail like Bradley Manning.
I say why even fight wars? We're not neanderthals, we're not a bunch of apes that can only communicate through violence. We're human beings who
have the technology and ability to communicate with anybody on the world, why not use that and resolve issues through talking? How is it seen as a
normal, functioning aspect of society to give people guns and have them kill each other because the politicians say so?
Why aren't the politicians the ones picking up a gun and manning the front lines? Why aren't their kids and relatives the ones being killed? What
the hell is wrong with the world, people just kill each other by the thousands and that's OK? Don't get me wrong, there are some military conflicts
that are justified, like with maniacs like Hitler who are killing people by the millions, but nowadays we don't even declare wars! It's insane!
War should be only an absolute necessity, when humanity is facing imminent danger and violence is the only possible answer. Finding reasons to fight
wars and get people killed while people rake in millions of dollars is disgusting.
