    A Toast to World Peace

    "A toast to world peace" A waste of words and a waste of a drink.

    All of you that embrace such a silly notion should wake up from your dream. The wars, the insurgencies, the bloodshed, the land grabs, the genocide, and the murder of innocent civilians will continue until the earths end.

    Your Shangri La will forever stay imprinted on the pages of the novel The Lost Horizon. It is fiction and you know it, but you don't have the guts to accept it. The utopia you seek, the unselfish love of mankind, the "love your neighbor like yourself" world does not exist.

    Politicians can broker peace and hold discussions on solving today's armed conflicts all they want. If they solve one another will rise it's ugly head. As the rush to solve one, the previous one's ceas fire will expire or treacheroulsy be broken. Please don't waste tax dollars on anymore wothless summits.

    The Spartans and the Trojans fought over Helen; the Romans fought the Carthaginians over trade routes; the Crusades were fought because the Turks were encroaching on the Byzantine Empire; the 30 years war was fought over territorial disputes and religion; the Revolutionary War was fought over taxes and power; pride, land grabs, resources, greed and power fueled WW1 and WW2; finally we have Iraq, a war of natural resources. But let's face the fax dolks, the US nor the Mussies hold the corner on war. There are dozens upon dozens of armed conflicts, civil disturbances, insurgencies and all out war that are killing as I type.

    The spoils of war will go to the winner. Fact. The winners will change in time, they won't stay the same.

    Today it is oil, tomorrow it may be water. Who knows. It won't stop so why talk about it. Greed, power, wealth, control - what ever the reason it won't stop.

    I have never, nor will I ever make a toast to such a silly dream as world peace. We may feel righteous for saying it, but the reality is we are only fooling ourselves.

    I will rather stay a delusional dreaming fool, than loose the faint hope that through education, development and standing tall for what is good and right, peaceful coexistence for all Mankind can be achieved some time in a distant future.

    World peace is one of many helluva good reasons for toasting, and whatever I drink is not wasted, at least not to me that is.


    Make not

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    It's time to evolve folks. And if you think it's idealogical bullshit, you're on the wrong team and should kill yourself.

    Even if we assume you are correct, is that reason not to try to stop it, or reduce it?

    Are you making a moral case for social Darwism? If so, consider the waning West is on the wrong side of the curve and, under your model, perhaps terminally.

    True but we can try to make a difference and on an individual level we can.

    So, I'll have a toast.

    Love, compassion and the dream of world peace are the only thing that keep the human race from ripping itself to pieces. If there were not enough of us with that idea in our hearts the forces of fascism who drive us into extinction before you could say ethnic cleansing.

    I love you Chitown and have strong compassion for your deep burning rage. I hope you find the peace of mind you so clearly need.

    Good for you DD. A Seppo speaking of world peace is hypocritical. Most Yanks wouldn't recognize such an item if it came up and tweeked 'em. Considering they've been the principle instigator of worldwide problem for the last 100+ years.

    Oh brother! People fight for power, retaliation, oppression. It's psych 101. When everyone is content economically, they usually get along fine, until somebody wants what you have or what everyone haves, or decides another race, etc need to be eliminated. Envy.

    What's with you people? The only way to maintain peace is to have way more military power than the other guy.

    To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace. George Washington

    I do something by not starting wars and killing people, nor voting for people who do. And I've already told you Jet, I've cut down thousands of trees more than I have hugged.

    Peace isn't going to stimulate the economy, or keep us in the style to which we have become accustomed.

    Uh huh. Peace lovers like you will die first, Pick. You think if we are nice to terrorists and militants that they will be nice to us? 55555555555 Folks who support terrorists are fueling their fire (stupid infidels!). And if a gang crashed through your door wielding machetes and started to chop up your family, what then, dear Pick? Offer them Singha ans som tam?
    So, how's Obama doing for you then? 17,000 military personnel to Afghanistan? Geez, even Harper is drawing out the Canuck forces there in a few years.

    Geee that's a lot of blame for us to carry considering the fact that mankind has been on earth for millions of years.. and I guess there was never any attacks against us on 9/11 nor was there any IRA attacks against England, Hamas/Hesbollah attacks against Israel, Pakistani attacks against India, nor Indian attacks against British occupation, no Russian war in Afghanistan, no Russia versus Georgia, and lest us not forget Iraqs war with Iran and then their invasion of Kuwait nor the 2 big wars both of which we entered last and in the case of WWII we were attacked first by Japan.. But you're right America was the instigator of EVERY war in the last 100 years ...Trolling fool with the convenient memory...

    FFS, you have mentioned many wars and to date, no one has made an industry out of it like the yanks have done.

    You wage war and it comes home to you!

    Get over it!

    What?

    Are the British still going on and on about losing 50,000 people in the Blitz?

    Are the Laotins still going on and on about all the bombs that were dropped in their country (who wasn't even at war), are the Cambodians still going on about the US's installation of the Kmer Rouge?

    Are the Central American countries still going on and on about the dictators that the US funded, so the dreaded communists wouldn't get a hold?

    If you do enough mischief in the world for your own self interest, you will be paid back one day.

    Most Americans are completely unaware of how badly their country has behaved over the last fifty years.

    'Land of the free'? you have to be kidding!
