nature of war by Friedhelm nature of war by Friedhelm
The nature of war.
There is no doubt wether it exists or not. The human uses war to force his will upon another object. The goal is to defeat the enemy, for he will not be able to strike back. In reality it isn't that easy of cause. There are always plenty of reasons for a war - and many different interests related to it. But I intentionally simplify here.

We all know how it is if someone makes you angry and you begin to have hostilely thoughts for this person. If we were able to use whatever is needed to defeat this person, if we had the power - in other words: if we were above the law ... what would you do?

Give someone a weapon and .. he will use it?

Is there a 'nature of war'?

Write me what you think.

PS: If you cant see it here are some explanations.
What you see in the muzzle is a landscape (some trees and behnd that a mountain with clouds). Some blood is coming out of the muzzle to represnt result of war.

If you view humanity as i do you'll see this.

Humanity is a child playing in there room, they collect their toys and start to play, one toy is called peace another is war while the last is nature, during playtime the child takes to liking war and makes peace seem like the enemy and war befriends nature, they call the couple "Human Nature" and then they beat peace and once the child has stopped playing his mother comes in to find War and Nature neatly put on their bed, She then notices peace on the floor in several pieces she then goes to say "That's my child".

A depressing way to put it is that war will come to an end, at least for us humans, when we finally drive ourselves to extinction. We'll be free of the suffering and death that war brings, but we'll also be free of life and the temptation to end it.
Another way to put it is that there will always be war, so long as there is human anger and human desire, but so long as people fight to end wars as well, we can be assured that any war WILL end, and we'll have a short period of peace.
Of course, then someone decides to start another war, and we'll fall back into the never-ending cycle of war and stillness.

Well, everything has nature. Nature isn't confined to plants and animals and wild things. War, of course has a nature itself. It's violent and has a lust for blood. It's dominating. It's two sides fighting, trying to rule over the other. There's gore. It's horrible, gory, violent, bloody, tragic.

It's enough to bring tears to your eyes. It's the kind of fight between two parents, and the daughter(/son) is screaming for them to stop.

It's a horrible, horrible thing. But's necessary.
