Having been in a few more fights than most, I agree with you 100%.
Fighting never solved anything, it sometimes made matters worse, and it seemed...
There was always an instigator.
Put that in perspective today's international views...
It fits like a glove.
The only reason people support fighting and "interventionism" is because of television.
Maybe I should say media generally, but I blame propaganda in general, also. Instigators?
Or maybe the crowd who cheers, "Fight! fight! Fight!"
Had these supporters never watched this crap spewed from the TV, things may be different now.
The fights (wars) today are always instigated from people with tons of wealth.
They are the people who fund both sides to accomplish their goals.
They don't get involved with any physical action at all, just monetary gains.
Thank God this information is readily accessible today, because had it not been, we probably would've been well into WWIII. In my opinion, that
would've been a terrible thing. But after finding out who really started WWI and WWII not to mention every single war including the Revolutionary War,
I may think differently.
But we all know there are deeply rooted reasons these "elites" want war.
It's definitely not to benefit the people, or cure "terrorism".
Terrorism has been around for millenia.
It's called conflict.
More specifically, war.
Just because these "elites" put a spin on the word, in order to gain an audience, doesn't mean it's new.
Or genuine, for that matter.
It's just another way to convince civilians to give up liberties.
In order to be under more control.
So they can aquire more wealth.
Because we all know you can't take wealth with you when you die.
But you can leave it for future generations to keep the serfs in order.
And wealth = power.
In some diluted eyes.
