War ISN'T Hell...

There are no innocents in Hell, just sinners, where war is mostly innocents.

War is way worse than Hell.

24. As I typed so many times

in this forum. War is an admission of failure. A failure to communicate, a failure to air out grievences, a failure to come to terms, a failure to think of the innocent and on and on. Even the Soldier having to fight the war is innocent. War is killing. Killing does not solve anything.

7. War is our greatest sin

Even preparing for war is immoral and until we see those who profit from war as criminal humanity will suffer.

9. Just an addendum ...

"War is way worse than Hell for those present where military actions take place."

For those of us who are far from conflict zones, life pretty much goes on as usual.

Had the US actually faced 9-11-type situations for years on end, we might have some inkling of what war actually is.
