    I Hear Thunder

    I hear thunder. What a relief to know that it is only thunder. Not a bomb. Fourth of July, lights in the sky It's nothing to worry about. How lucky I am that I can play with explosives. And not start a war. I hear thunder It's too close for comfort, but I can bear it Because I...

    Can you hear the cries of all those innocent

    souls. Who shall stand for those men and women, and children. Wars only for Greed. Religious wars? No, War of Greed. They use God's name to hate. Why do we allow unfit Leaders to lead? Why don't we impeach them all. Starting with congress and the president. The power is in the...

    I get very upset when hearing about war

    or even watching movies about war. These men are fathers, husbands, sons, brothers, just average people, and they could all die in the blink of an eye in some horrible, inhumane, painful way. These women are mothers, wives, daughters and sisters...I was watching the movie...

    War

    I really wish there wasn't any war at all really I do. I think it is unnecessary.

    War, What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing.

    Say it again. There is no conflict ever that could not have been resolved with diplomacy. Peaceful resolutions should always be sought, but this is not on the agenda of most governments.

    I hate how they destroy lives,

    homes, cities, countries. They should be avoided at all costs. I'm sorry, I don't respect wars or the governments that fuel them.

    From Kandahar To Kabul

    The world wars were truly the worst humanity

    has ever been. Why haven't we learned? Why do we still send our sons. Our brothers. Our cousins. Our friends. Why do they go off to die for "freedom" that doesn't exist? Why do we roll our armor into someone else's backyard and expect them to just deal with it? There's no excuse...

    Disgust

    I hate war, it revolts me. It disgusts me. Why do countless people have to suffer and die because of some political squabble? Its not just the act of genocide - because war essentially is genocide - that gets to me. It is the cruel wartime tactics that people employ. No wonder...

    The Earth could support us all easily

    if we just stopped wasting lives and multi-trillions of dollars on war and weapons. So please just stop it, any warmongers out there. Make love not war. Give peace a chance. And be nicer to each other.

    War could bond men like a magnet,

    but like a magnet it could repel them, too. The things they saw, the things they did. Sometimes they just wanted to forget.
