World Peace or the End of the World...Your Choice

Maybe the Mayans had it correct: December 21, 2012 the World will End.

On or about Novemer 11, 2012 (Veterans Day) while honoring those that gave some and those that gave all, I asked for World Peace.  Fat chance of that happening.

The 2003 Invasion of Iraq (19 March – 1 May 2003), was the start of the conflict known as the Iraq War.

The War in Afghanistan began on October 7, 2001 and continues as I write this blog.

Iran is trying and will probably succeed in building a Nuclear Bomb (everybody's favorite weapon of mass destruction).

Israeli   planes, tanks and gunboats are pounding suspected militant positions as I write this blog.

Violence never just impacts the soldiers firing the guns—the collateral damage extends far beyond innocents shot in the crossfire.

Here is a list of wars just from 2011 to present:

Syrian civil war

Sudan internal conflict (2011–present)

Sudanese nomadic conflicts

War in Somalia (2009–present)

2011–present Libyan factional fighting

Tuareg rebellion (2012)

2012 South Sudan–Sudan border conflict

2012 East DR Congo conflict

2012 conflict in Lebanon

Operation Pillar of Cloud is an Israel Defense Forces operation in the Gaza Strip, officially launched on 14 November 2012 with the killing of Ahmed Jabari, chief of the Gaza military wing of Hamas.

Maybe the Mayans had it correct:  December 21, 2012 the World will End.

or:

Perhaps we should assist Iran in building a Nuclear Bomb to ensure the end of the World. Turn the planet into a parking lot and then and only then we stop piling bodies up like cord wood.

You sound as hopeless/helpless as I feel about this. None of us want war but we are always into it in some form - some nation. We seem to be in a position of 'either help or be attacked'......Something like the Mafia in the sixties. What options do we have?

Why has the Afghanistan war gone on so long? Why are we still there today? It was my understanding that we went there to get Bin Laden & that would defeat Al Quada. Supposedly we got him, and we certainly didn't put a dent in Al Quada either. We have seen the deaths of thousands and still we remain. I do know that when they come to our country to strike our people, we have to fight back but for how long?
