People that glorify war or accept war are sick human beings...
Advertisements [?]
War is failure. It is below human level to resort to war in this, the 21st century. We have seen too much war in the last century. What fools would look for war as a first resort? What humans see the suffering and the pain and do not attempt to stop it? Only sick people can ignore the deaths and dismemberment of other humans.
