Opinion: War is not a possibility

I must consider myself warned when I hear so much threatening trivial talk in the media about war. I use the word trivial because our foreign enemies are essentially imaginary, and war is good for no one except a few profiteers at the top.    


  1. Although I agree that the military industrial complex may be the most evil entity on the planet, and we have many issues to tackle to make our world a better place to live, isolationism and pacifism are not the solutions. The Russians and the Chinese are every bit as "provocative" as we are, if not worse. As are Al-Qaida, ISIS, etc. Our enemies are far from imaginary, and yes, we have done a lot to create some of them. But to think that we do not have to defend ourselves is pie-in-the-sky lunacy. I don't pretend to have all the answers, even if I did I doubt anyone would listen. Our greedy, carnal nature is the problem, and that is not going away anytime soon.

      Overall, our nature seems to be that of fearful, grasping, violent monkeys.

    2. Ooooo, ooooo, ahh, ahh!
