    Wars do not happen of their own ...

    Wars are made to happen, by Fools ... in these times ... because in this bunch of fools, are those, called the Arms Manufacturers and Politicians ... who maddened by their egos, want to rule the world ... by enslaving !

    Because ... these fools want to live in huge estates, drink the best wines .. dance with the prettiest women ... and wield power over fellow humans ... till time takes its toll ... the baritones become wrinkled sopranos ... biding time ... fearing the end.

    Here is a poem and a quote I found for you. I hope they help.

        The Sheepdogs

        Most humans truly are like sheep
        Wanting nothing more than peace to keep
        To graze, grow fat and raise their young,
        Sweet taste of clover on the tongue.
        Their lives serene upon Life’s farm,
        They sense no threat nor fear no harm.
        On verdant meadows, they forage free
        With naught to fear, with naught to flee.
        They pay their sheepdogs little heed
        For there is no threat; there is no need.

        To the flock, sheepdog’s are mysteries,
        Roaming watchful round the peripheries.
        These fang-toothed creatures bark, they roar
        With the fetid reek of the carnivore,
        Too like the wolf of legends told,
        To be amongst our docile fold.
        Who needs sheepdogs? What good are they?
        They have no use, not in this day.
        Lock them away, out of our sight
        We have no need of their fierce might.

        But sudden in their midst a beast
        Has come to kill, has come to feast
        The wolves attack; they give no warning
        Upon that calm September morning
        They slash and kill with frenzied glee
        Their passive helpless enemy
        Who had no clue the wolves were there
        Far roaming from their Eastern lair.
        Then from the carnage, from the rout,
        Comes the cry, “Turn the sheepdogs out!”

        Thus is our nature but too our plight
        To keep our dogs on leashes tight
        And live a life of illusive bliss
        Hearing not the beast, his growl, his hiss.
        Until he has us by the throat,
        We pay no heed; we take no note.
        Not until he strikes us at our core
        Will we unleash the Dogs of War
        Only having felt the wolf pack’s wrath
        Do we loose the sheepdogs on its path.

        And the wolves will learn what we’ve shown before;
        We love our sheep, we Dogs of War.

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    Peace on earth??  The last--and only time--there was true peace on earth was the period in the Garden of Eden before Eve decided to let herself be seduced by the serpent.

    I don't believe there will be total, true peace on Earth until the second coming of Christ Jesus.  We are born into an evil world, and many of us use the good that God instills in each of us to repel evil.

    There have been wars and murder since the beginning of mankind.  I do believe, however, that the good in the world does outweigh the bad.

    War is too good a business to end it.

    I just read this last night: the biggest buyers of arms currently are India & Pakistan (hostile towards each other), South Korea (hostile towards North Korea), China, and Singapore.

    The largest arms suppliers? It's no surprise: the United States, Russia, Germany, France and the UK.  Only Germany doesn't hold veto power on the UN.

    So, while coffers are being lined, don't expect peace to come easily. However, I believe it can happen.
