I Hate War

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,805 People

    Growing up in a military family

    and having your loved ones and friends sent off to die over some completely bullshit reason really wears on a person. I knew by the time I was 8 that every reason given for fighting a war since about 1945 has been 100% a lie or misinformation.

    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.

    I hate war when innocent people are killed

    and it is called self defense. A child, woman or innocent man killed because they happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Being a patriotic American it makes me upset to say that we go to war for stupid reasons. I've been speaking with a person from a different country who's city got bombed last night by Americans. It makes me so sad to hear that because its hard to love your country when were...

    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...

    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...

    I never liked war. These people tend to share

    what I feel everytime I hear of a war being started. Yes, this was about a year ago but I would express myself the same with any war.

    What is the point if it

    People have told me that god has killed people,

    no. People have killed people religion does not kill people. They use it as a excuse and if it did not exist they would just find another. We can say science has killed people as it created the weapons in order to kill people but we don't because science did not kill the people...

    War is senseless. It wastes

    and destroys so many lives and ultimately achieves nothing. It becomes and endless cycle of destruction and misery.

    The question whether war is ever justified,

    and if so under what circumstances, is one which has been forcing itself upon the attention of all thoughtful men - Bertrand Russell - "The Ethics of War" (1915) Still a vibrant essay which should be read, it ends with this statement: "The objects for which men have fought in...

    Just had an interesting observation

    that mankind started with wars over land and resources, then over religions, then over ideologies and now we are going back to religions and global climate change will likely take us back to wars over land and resources.

    Why do we spend so much money on hate?

    There is little opposition to this in America. Quite the opposite actually, there seems to be an overwhelming amount of support for the mutilation and extermination of other human beings. We're smart enough to invent these sophisticated instruments of war and stupid enough to...

    From Kandahar To Kabul

    You can watch a little bit of war from your

    nice living room - 30 seconds of what's going on in Syria - and when you've had enough, switch over to some celebrity programme. We live our life through screens and images in this way, and we don't know what is real or fake anymore. It doesn't matter.
