- unthinkable ?
- unrealistic ?
- a pipe dream ?
- against human nature ?
- unachievable ?
- too risky ?
- too boring ?
- no fun ?

It is so easy to "play" war.
- War of words
- cold wars
- hot wars
- patriotic wars
- heroic wars
- romantic wars
- macho wars
- macho feelings
- quest for power

It seems so hard to imagine peace.
- peace without military threats
- peace among people (not just governments)
- peace without tanks, without rockets, without fighter planes - just peace !

Many admire people like NELSON MANDELA, MAHATMA GHANDI, MARTIN LUTHER-KING, JOHN LENNON, but ...
do we adhere to their principles ? Principles of non-violence ?

Many believed in a global gradual reductions of weapons. If we look around, the opposite is happening right now.

We need again a "Global Peace Movement", another "Flower-Power-Movement".

The world is getting crazy again, out off control, and many here in this forum are helping to pour oil into the fire,

instead of presenting peace solutions to this forum, which can be discussed.

All life is sacred. If humans will not learn this the easy way, they will learn it the hard way. Have all the wars you want until you get bored of them.

There are always people who are safe from war. These are the people who love peace.

I have already learned my lesson. If you mess up, you can come back and try again in your next life, so no worries there, either.

PEACE - topics seems to be a neglected minority (curiosity) in this otherwise blood-dripping forum.

Can we change that ?

Can we have not only a "MILITARY SECTION" in this forum, but also a "PEACE SECTION" ???

What do you think ?

Shall we inspire the moderators to allow such a section ???
