War

War……what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

I have never been able to understand war. In my opinion, there is no problem in the world that can’t be talked through, negotiated, compromises found and settled without dressing people up in uniforms, giving them arms and letting them shoot, bomb and blast each other to death, killing thousands of innocent people in the process. Too simplistic? Possibly.

The most amazing thing is that many of these conflicts are over religion. Now forgive me for simplifying things too much, but religion is generally about loving one another, tolerance, not hurting each other, not stealing each other’s property and turning the other cheek. How does war fit in with those principles then?

I rest my case.
