    Why????????

    When has war ever been the answer? I dont understand why we feel the need to cause so much death for stupid reasons. We dont need weapons to live. We dont need destruction for the rest of us to survive. Why does most of society frown upon single people killing others over...

    When War Will Be No More

    War causes untold, horrific misery and suffering; that is why God has promised in the Bible book of Psalms 46:8,9 that one day soon in mankind's coming history, war will be a thing of the past and that it will not come up into the minds and hearts of men. That verse reads: "Come...

    A Last Resort

    It's amazing that it's a fact that most normal people will do anything to avoid a fight but that we have so many wars going on around the world. I am not a liberal anti-war person or anything but it should be used as a LAST RESORT if we can't come to some sort of compromise. The...

    A Kid Today.

    I'm currently deployed. I'm a combat medic. Today a kid came into the hospital. Missing a limb, screaming and thrashing. I could only hand him off to a surgeon. The kid was 16 or 17, I hate war.

    From Kandahar To Kabul

    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...
