1 War is never a lasting solution for any problem
War doesn’t solve problems, rather it is known to create more issues. Thousands of innocents are killed. Death and misery spreads everywhere. This pushes forward the time even more and nothing can be done to bring the peace that earlier prevailed. The world would be a better place to live if people just focussed on improving themselves and not winning over others.
2 Only the dead have seen the end of war
The end of war never pacifies the situation. The real lucrative aim of the war is lost too. History is proof that war has never given peace to people, to sovereigns, and to society. It has given birth to even more vengeful situations than before. Only those who have suffered losses can understand that war can never be used as a weapon to win over.
3 Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die
People who want war do not suffer the consequences. It is the youth, with no intention of war,that has to fight and sacrifice. Once declared, the sufferings of war continue for many more years to come and nothing can be undone to give society back it has lost.
4 All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal
War happens when diplomacy fails. It happens when our so called powerful and potent leaders lose their patience. It happens for selfish motives. It happens to prove our dominance over others. And all we gain is bloodshed, cruelty and hatred.
5 Men make war to get attention. All killing is an expression of self-hate
War is never fought for society, because it can never benefit society. Our kings have fought wars to prove how powerful they were. Only hate and vengeance is spread through warfare. No love and peace are known to spread through wars in history.
6 It doesn’t make a damned bit of difference who wins the war to someone who’s dead
No matter how good victory feels for those who win, it can never compensate for the lives lost. The loss can never completely vanish from the lives of people. It prevails for hundreds of years. And the only ones who suffer are the innocent who never wished to have a war.
7 It’s not the armies that are evil, it’s wars and people who start them
War is declared by leaders and politicians who do not have to go to the battlefield themselves. Armies just follow the orders and bound by their duty to protect the nation from any outside threat. Army people know the best what it takes to fight a war, keeping their lives on risk and sacrificing everything to protect their nation
8 Wars don’t end anything
As known very well, wars never bring an end or solution to a problem. They just give rise to new problems and new causes to start another war. People who bear the consequences have no role to play with it, and people who are actually responsible for all the destruction, do not have to bear any consequences
9 War is a game that can be played with a smile on a face, but there won’t be any laughter in a heart
Victorious we may emerge but nobody can lead a happy life after so much suffering, even if those who suffered are not our own people. Somewhere people have to live their whole lives carrying the burden of regret and revenge. It is difficult to get back to what and how it was before all the destruction.
10 War means violence that begets new violence
War brings loss and humiliation which urges us to start a new war for all the loss and humiliation already occurred. There is destruction of society and destruction of families. Nobody can ever fully recover from the losses, and everyone wishes to avenge their lost and loved ones.
11 War is what happens when language fails
War happens when two nations fail to negotiate. This failure of negotiation brings destruction on a massive scale. It might seem victorious at first but even the winning nation suffers undying consequences. The after effects of war are overlooked when considering declaring war on another nation.
12 War is hell. You can’t photograph a flying bullet, but you can capture genuine fear
Most wars have resulted in a significant loss of life. The consequences, the loss, the destruction, the life-long pain that war brings to the lives of thousands can only be imagined. It takes more than a century for a nation to cover for all the environmental and economic loss.
13 Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy’s strategy
Sometimes, it’s important to make a move to protect the nation. So instead of aiming to destroy the lives of thousands, defending becomes of utmost importance. The only thing to be attacked should be the strategy of the army so as to prevent thousands of lives of animals and people to be attacked.
14 When the rich wage war it’s the poor who die.
The ones who suffer have nothing to do with war, neither to declare, nor to stop. They are helpless. The only thing they can do to protect their families is to fight and sacrifice their own lives. And poor, undoubtedly suffer more than the rich, the politicians and leaders because they have nowhere to seek shelter and no one to go to.
15 The world is full enough of hurts and mischances without wars to multiply them
The world would definitely become a better and more peaceful place to live in if we focus on reducing suffering through love, patience and social work. Maybe that would help to eradicate the never ending, poverty, suffering and inequality. There are already enough issues to tackle than to have more power through war and cause even more issues to tackle.
