Why I'm oppose to war Answered

Follow the money. War profiteers have no morality , This weekend take the time to listen to a vet. Just listen, let them tell what war was like and the discussing how they have been treated when they returned. The art of listening with your ears listen to their voices. Eyes what are you seeing in the faces? look real close to their eyes.What are you feeling in your heart ?

We have no Idea of what kind of conditions we might be living in if it wasn't for war. War kept the U.S from spliting.

listen to a vet..
That's what Veterns day is all about. If you want to talk to one they will probably be at the Golden Coral getting their free meal (drink not included)

Memorial day is for those who were unable to come home due to making the ultimate sacrifice, both two legged and four.

It seems I inadvertantly caused offence when I asked that the arguing stop.

I am sorry, that was not my intention.

No offense was taken (at least, not on my part). You had a valid point, (much like I was stumbling to make), which was that no single country should be honored more for their sacrifice than the other. And being a topic about peace, our dialogue should have stayed in that theme.

I don't really understand why you are opposed to war, because you haven't explained it very well.
Neither do I understand why you posted this - can you explain what you got out of listening, ears, voices, eyes, faces etc?
I assume something screwed with your head, but it's hard for you to explain it?

Why I'm oppose to war - because war results in Memorial days?
I've not seen anyone say "killing people is wrong" yet, you would think that a good answer to "why"?

I dislike war in concept, but due to the cultural and social tendency towards glorified violence that I have been raised in, I have a rather hypocritical obsession with guns and other weapons of war. I view war as a horrible thing, but it also seems an inevitable part of having a bunch of humans crammed together on a planet. I wish it wouldn't happen, but it does, so I must tolerate it. Those who profit from war and the death and destruction it causes are only doing what they think they must do to get ahead in this world, although I personally hate them for it.

While I have a strongly pseudo-pacifist bent in general when it comes to war (self-defense on an individual level being a notable exception), it isn't readily reducible to such terms. I hate to think what would have happened had the US not gotten involved in WWII, for example. But of course, usually wars are painted to their citizens as wars of (sometimes presumptive) self-defense against the enemy, regardless of whether that's true.

It's just a really complicated subject. Unless you have very extreme views, it's not really possible to reduce war to always good or always bad.

I'm currently part-way through "Churchill's Wizards", about the sneaker side of WWI & WWII. It's a history of camouflage in all it's forms.

I hadn't realised that the propaganda war ("camouflaging truth") was played on several fronts, including against the USA, to persuade you to Jon in WWI (I haven't gotten to WWII yet).

It worked.

Under many if not most conditions, war is "declared" originally by those that want (and many many times by those that have a religious conviction that they are right and the rest of the world is wrong). The response of defense is simply that. But the aggression that starts the war is reducible to "I want what you have" AND/OR "you are not the same as me, therefor you must not be allowed to exist". So, aggressive acts to alter others is reducible to good or bad. Forceful anything means someone doesn't have enough understanding in the world's diversity to live WITH it....so they want it to become them. THIS IS WRONG.
