White light
fighting back
fighting Black

Pandora's Box opens
Hitler provoking war
assassinated Pope

deadly gas
hate
rage
fear
power hungry men
used as tools
pawns in a war
that has spanned
known and unknown history

Huns ride
through a village
slaughtering men and children
raping women

a caveman kills his son
for taking his food

plague victims
thrown into castles
hundreds die

two cities
full of innocents
is wiped from the face
of the Earth
to end a pointless war
that didn't start
with a murdered pope
and hasn't ended
even today

Knowing the penalty, I'm playing the war Guru. C'mon, young people, war is as much a way of living as are hurricanes, tornados, blizzards, and other "natural." disasters. It's gonna' happen as long as mankind is convinced that his religion and belief, or lack of these, is the only entitlement to God's blessings. We're still far too provincial, and ignorant to realize that the United States paid with the lives of millions of our young men and women to stop a world war in 1941-1945. Today, even with the "wrong leaders," of both parties, we have policed the world (Bully, Hell!) so well since 1945, there has not been another WORLD WAR ! ! ! sO, PLEASE STOP BITCHING AND SECOND GUESSSING OUR LEADERS. Who else would steer the ship? Critics have the right to differ, but don't bore holes in the ship's hull, or throw the sails overboard. Studying truthful history,instead ofwith a closed mind, will go a long way toward informing young Americans, who really don't know the background of war and the leadership, good and bad, involved. War Happends! Thanks for listening. - Bill

Have we learned nothing? I fear for the future of mankind...an excellent, provocative write.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I think we're still at the 'cave man' stage! Seems we've learned nothing. What a bunch of gerbils spinning their wheels...

Yup, like some great theological orator said once, "War is hell." Hiroshima and Nagasaki paid the price for arrogance and false pride.
