Hey world!!!! Please just stop and take a breath. Israel/Palestine, Russia/US, Conservative/Liberal, _____/_______ its all getting a little too much. Look at how close we are to another World War. AGAIN?!?

Have we really not learned our lessons yet?

World War II sucked. It sucked bad. Over 12 million non-combatants were herded up and slaughtered like cattle. Another 60+ million is estimated to have died either being a soldier, civilian caught in the crossfire, and innocents from war related famine and disease. North of 70 million people died!! 70 million! Don't forget a nuclear weapon was used.

But wait, before that we had another lesson.. WWII. A much dirtier and horrific war for the soldiers involved in the fighting.

Then we get to Korea, which technically isn't over.

Then Vietnam, Grenada, Afghanistan (for USSR), Lebanon, Iraq/Iran war, Israel had several, etc etc etc.

What have we learned from all this? How have the people grown, evolved, adapted?


We ALLOW our elected leaders to do with our futures as they please. Here's what happens to a population of a country when a massive war is underway. People who pay lots of taxes stay employed to keep funding the war machine, they don't go fight. People who make the decisions about war, stay safe and cozy in Washington DC and various other high level military bases. People who make guns, bullets and war equipment stay employed, get WELL PAID and don't fight. Everyone else is going to be expected to fight, or work in a support role to the fighting (less the elderly and children).

The majority of the population suffers by the will of a handful or elected officials. Why can't we learn the true lesson?


We don't have to fight.

There is no way possible that if the general population on both sides say in no uncertain terms, NO we don't want a fight, could there be one. General population in my thought process includes military, except for the very top brass (which even some of them don't want to see a WWIII).

If a majority of the Russian people, and a majority of the American people say 'NO' together, we can prevent our leaders from allowing the most unnecessary war ever from starting. I don't think WWI was necessary. WWII was different because one country started really acting foolish and almost took over everything. WWIII is about business interests, which is why it is so hard to start.

So lets finally wake up, tell our governments to simmer down, and find another way to work out the problems. WAR is not the answer. WAR is not a solution. WAR is a business, a business that needs to go bankrupt and be shut down.

And please don't tell me it is impossible for the general population on both sides to actually get together and say NO together. If millions of people can vote for an American Idol contestant with their cell phones, we can easily all tweet our displeasure, or make it our facebook statuses, or just everyone email the White House and Kremlin a two word email... NO WAR

Unfortunately, you are describing the human condition.

It seems we learn something only after we have personally experienced the worst.

It's why history repeats itself.

Sad, but true.

I agree.

Too many people dying for imaginary reasons.

Unfortuneatly the fools and idiots of the world are hellbent on bringing about the end of the world and revel in the bloodshed and slaughter of innocents ..

Until people stand up and tell the murderous bastards they call leaders theyve had it and refuse to participate in the barbarism nothing will change..

Only thing that changes is they find new ways to maim and kill each other over # that doesnt mean a damn thing ...

People who support and advocate war in any form should be tried for crimes against humanity ..
