Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.

””The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes”

United States rallied for 10yrs to bring what they call ‘justice’ to the victims of the 9/11 attack. Today there are a million questions raised on the way the operation was conducted. Why was Bin Laden killed if he was unarmed? Was he shot in front of his 12yr old daughter? Was he executed? At the end of the day we hear different versions of the TRUTH and which one should the common man ought to believe? In my opinion the death of anyone should not be celebrated rather it should help us see beyond what is visible and be cautious. It is very surprising how quick we can be to judge others and call the act of killing as ‘justice’. 9/11 was a fateful day not just for the people of United States but for everyone who believed in peace. But the United States was quick to retaliate similar to when Ronald Regan ordered bombings in Libya, George Bush who waged war against Iraq and Bill Clinton who ordered military strikes in Baghdad, Afghanistan and Sudan. We are all with America when they experienced the worst terrorist attack in the history where thousands of innocent lives were lost but should we not also mourn the losses of the millions dead in Iraq and Afghanistan because of the so called ‘war on terror’. So if Bin Laden was the goblin to wage the war will the killings stop that the goblin is dead? or are we going to find another goblin as an excuse to continue the ‘war on terror’ killing more innocent lives and rob young ones the same future we want our children to have?

The number of people who lost their lives in the 9/11 attack were approximately 3000, but the victims of the so called ‘war on terror’ is 10 times more than 3000. Who gave one country the power to determine what is right or wrong? If every one of us goes after someone who hurt us how would this world exist? How would we survive? I’m not saying that terrorism is something that should be tolerated but that does not gives us the right to rob people of their present and future. War is not the only solution to fight terrorism.

  • Good post, the views of which I share.

  • Chad Steele says:

    thanks for this… very well said.

  • Field marshall brice says:

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”

    War is a terrible thing. But aside from the war on terror there are other battles that have yet to be fought. Let me ask you this… A man in south america has just bought a new sex slave. Her name is jane smith and she is 15 years old. She was abducted from her home 6 months ago and has been raped and forced into prostitution. As a member of this socity and a man of god i cannot and will not stand for such thing. People like me will always do wut is necessary to protect the ones who cannot protect themselves. Dont just pray for peace. Do something about it.

    • kitspect41 says:

      very well said and so do agree

      • kitspect41 says:

        the bad guys always win when no one does anything to stop them and that is why we do what we do sorry you feel that a woman should be killed BECAUSE she was raped …..

    • James says:

      Of Course War Is A Terrible Thing. Have You Seen The Movie Gallipoli (1981)?

    • k12 says:

      if you think about it,that is the only reason why the world goes around. thous people don’t think of us any more than dirt. even if we were at peace with the world they would attack us at any given time. And to correct the other mistake you made. no one gave us any power we took it upon our self. If we did not someone else would have and possibly not in the wright hands.If you need an example WORLD WAR 2!!!!!

  • Dylan says:

    Well actually he was shot by his own gun so therefore he was most likely to be armed

  • jaylen Murrey says:

    Amen idek know how old this post is but Amen, war isn’t always the answer, in addition ….i think we american put our guns in places where they simply have no business. i believe (and feel free to disagree) that the only reason America is the greatest country is because we have the biggest guns and largest wallets when it comes down to it. as a society…we are pretty messed up, we’ve lost value in humanity, honor, humility, chivalry…etc the list goes on. its a damn shame.

  • John Learoyd says:

    Hi, excellent site, have launched a similar War Poetry site, Tangled Branches, Fallen Leaves @www.mistereality.com
    I hope you will find it as emotive as I have found your site, There are questions about warfare that should be answered and are often only asked because of sites like these

  • anonymous says:

    I agree, but if our 1st world country’s didn’t do something about terrorism who would.

  • James says:

    This Photo You Placed Of The Kid With A Gun At His Head Is Unreal. I Can Not Believe It Would Come To That.

  • john says:

    Very nicely structured and intelligent piece but I am sorry but I must dissagree with you. War is a necessity as in humans we are naturally a violant species and without society we would kill without remourse but society is changing peoples opinions on such matters but or species primal instincts cannot be removed from us. War will come among humans regardless becouse its how we are programmed and we need to be culled by a good couple million or even billion if we want our species to survive. Sorry if this seems offencive to you just voicing my opinion.

  • Jeramy says:

    Irony; you can post your opinion because of people like me. Good ideas, wonderful fantasy, but unrealistic. Violence isn’t always the answer but when it is, its the only answer.

  • Hannah says:

    What you said is true…”Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate.” I see your frustration in your article. But the whole reason we as humans struggle with lying, hating, etc. is that we struggle with a sin problem. We were born in sin. God created a perfect world. But He gave man a free will. And man, deceived by Satan who spoke through the serpent, chose to disobey God by eating of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil-the one tree in the garden of Eden that God commanded Adam and Eve not to eat of. Adam and Eve ate the fruit of that one tree in direct disobedience to God’s command. The two were then banished from the garden of Eden. God cursed man that he would have to work hard to provide for his family. God cursed the woman with much pain and sorrow in child-bearing. God cursed the serpent that he would have to crawl on his belly and eat the dust of the ground. God killed the first animal to clothe Adam and Eve because before they had sinned, they had been clothed with God’s righteousness. After sin, they realized they were naked, and God clothed them. Then began blood sacrifices for sin. Two thousand years later, God, in His great love and mercy by which He loved us, sent His only begotten Son into the world, born of a virgin, made in the likeness of men. Jesus Christ is His Son…and His mission was to die for all mankind. Jesus Christ grew up to become a man. He performed miracles, trained disciples, raised the dead, healed the sick, gave the blind their sight again, cleansed the lepers, and made the lame to walk again. He never sinned. He could not and cannot sin because He is God Himself. But one day, He was taken and falsely accused before a fake trial of the Sanhedrin, as well as in front of Pilate, for crimes He did not commit. Pilate, because of the pressure of the mob who wanted Him to die, sentenced Him to scourging and crucifixion. Jesus Christ did not die because of the men who crucified Him…Jesus took His own life, for no one can kill the one true God. Yet, three days later, Christ arose from the dead as He had prophesied! And it took me to review this history to say this…man, because of his own choice, is a sinner. Man will continue to live in sin, to lie, to steal, to cheat, to kill, to covet, to commit adultery, to look at pornography, to curse with the mouth God created–all because of man’s choice. Man does not need reform. Man needs a Savior. If we but believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, we will be saved. No, we will not be perfect. While a Christian lives on this earth he will still struggle with sin because sin is his old nature. But by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, Who comes to abide in the heart of the believer at the moment of salvation, the Christian has the power, within himself (not “of” himself), to overcome temptation, to do what God has commanded us to do in Scripture, and to complete the individual work He gives each Christian to accomplish. And Christ will return!!! He has promised He will. And when He returns there will be a judgment upon this earth the world has never known, nor can it fully comprehend. The book of Revelation contains the future of those who do not accept Him. And for those who refuse to accept His free gift of salvation and die without Christ will be cast into the lake of fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Dear author, I do not know who you are. But God has commanded His children to tell others of His salvation. I am one of His…I am a believer in Christ Jesus. And He has given me freedom from the power of sin. I live waking up every morning knowing that one day I will be with Him. One day I will be in heaven with my Savior. He has promised. He loves you so much. He is not a God of hate. He is a God of love and of justice. Nothing happens but that He does not see. Nothing is said but that He does not hear. Nothing is thought but that He does not know. One day He will judge sin, the devil, and every other unbeliever who does not accept Him. This is not salvation by works. We can do nothing to save ourselves. We must only believe on Jesus. Seems too easy? God did not intend for it to be hard. Now the Christian life is not easy. One day I could be killed for my faith. Would it be worth it? Yes. How can someone who loves his Lord be threatened with finally being able to be with Him? I know this is a long post. Please read it though. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.”
