The Conflicts of History

People have died and homeless have been made.

Who is at fault? Who should be held accountable for the many made homeless and for all the families who lost their love ones?

We see many communities criticising, condemning and even proposing wiping out the aggressor.

Looking back at history...

The feud was a century old one. One that came about becasue of the survival for the right of existence and survival. One that came about because of a need for equality and impartial division of land.

Who is right and who is wrong...I don't know as I do not live and have live durong the time when the animosity started.

We are all chosen people, depending on whose side you are on. Is it a war of religion or should I rightfully say a contest and not war of civilisation?

Several wars have been fought on this front- all if not mostly conventional ones. The victor have all emerged clearly or perhaps not when we talk about losses to mankind. Perhaps mankind is not that important after all when faced with land, riches and power.

I don't know, i thought man is only second to GOD.

Circumstances creates heros who in turn are judged by the many who look back upon history.

History is not so simple a subject after all....

A rocket fired and a missle is returned
A stone threw and a bullet is returned
A person seized and a hectre of land is seized in return
A person died and a village is flattened
A war starts and the Union of Nations is startled.

A war ends, but what has been lost is gone forever and ever
A building can be rebuilt, but the soul of the building cannot never be recovered
An army can be rebuilt but never the sons of a family
A call for peace can be made but never can the peace of times returned for a long time after...

May Peace comes soon to the people in Gaza, Israel and people in was war zones.

Coincidentally, I just finished Joe Haldeman's "Forever Peace". In the story, the main plot involves converting humanity to be less war-like. Basically it involves being "jacked" together, where people become as one through shared mind experiences. Well, it's a lot more interesting and complex that what I can share here (I'm a lousy book reviewer!) so maybe you want to check that book out.

become as one through shared mind experience? sounds like the omo in Buzz Light Year....who keeps humming "We are one". Unified through this giant cystallite on their home planet. If this goes missing, they can work in rhythm anymore.
