The UGLY FACES of WAR. Once WAR is waged, all HELL breaks LOOSE.

I dreamed last night of a WORLD WAR 3.

Stupid, isn’t it?

Yet with the current spates of ongoing global turmoil and unrest, who can really tell if the end’s near.

There’s no such thing as OLD wars and NEW wars.

Wars are wars. Period.

WAR is an ugly word.

You’d not be able to turn the clock backwards, so historical events cannot be reversed.

Memories of shocking revelations on the ravages of wars will always remain.

And their massive destructions.

Horrors such as these will forever be imprinted in the hearts and minds of those who had lived through the troublous era.

Life is for living, loving and giving, not killing.

All men are brothers.

Yet these days we have what we called the MODERN day wars.

Wars are here to stay.

It is a roaring business.

Or is it not?

Not everyone wants peace.

Some people benefit economically from instability, insecurity and warfare.

Mankind’s struggle for the greater power and supreme religion will never cease.

As long as people do not see eye-to-eye and human needs are not equalized, war fights on.

Philosophers, politicians, scientists and everybody alike have preached the gospel.

But what can they really do?

They are not gods.

For those who have traveled through the dark sordid period of old wars can appreciate the pains and sufferings of mankind.

The word WAR is a horrific one.

When war begins, the whole hell openeth.

The late WINSTON CHURCHILL warned us that “Never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy. Or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter.

The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.”

Everything about war is barbaric.

But the worst barbarity of war is that it forces men collectively to commit acts which individually they would revolt with their whole being.

A great war leaves a country with three armies:

an army of cripples, an army of mourners and an army of thieves.

Ahhhhh …..
