Why war is necessary...

Two weeks ago, the UN and French government brokered a cease-fire between the Hezbollah and Israel. In the cease-fire proposal, they called for an unconditional release of the two abducted soldiers. On the outside, it seemed perfect and peaceful. But it is extremely flawed.

Here's why. If there's anything that Hezbollah wants, it's the trading of prisoners. They didn't go that far for nothing, and as long as their objectives are not achieved, there's no reason to turn over their trump card. So, eventually, nothing will be achieved by this short term cease fire. Moreover, it lets both sides have more time to prepare better troops, weapons, and strategies, to only cause more deaths on the battlefields and costs more innocent lives.

Israelis have their own sights in mind. To weed out the terrorist organization once and for all, is indeed better solution than keeping the ticking timebomb. Absorbing Hezbollah troops into the Lebanese Army is definitely not a long term approach. As long as the ideology is alive, it's a matter of time before all hell breaks loose again.

The peacekeepers are a joke. Look at them, people don't wanna fight them, and they have no motive to stabilize things the way they should be - by killing off the opposition.

And you're probably going like - What about the civillians in Tyre? Come on, if there are any people smart enough to stay in places like that, it's either they're held in by Hez troops or they're holding their fellow citizens from fleeing. It's not the first time things like this happened, and will not be the last.

In the world where conflict is inevitable, why do we try to stop wars at costs so great, it defeats the purpose of peace. I say - evict everyone from the region, and let them fight, finish it like a man. Then, the people can go back to their hometown and rebuild it. This time, it's permanent. It's a much better solution. Low civilian casualties and efficient.

As a conclusion, I'd like to point out that the world's first digital computer is made to read missile shells during World War II. It is easy to see how digital computer enhanced our lifestyle greatly and saved lives through computer aided surgery, pharmaceutical research, and so forth. Conflict is often the first step towards the better, all we need to do is look at the bigger picture.

Keep the troops in Iraq, clear out the vermin before it's too late. (and take some oil while u're at it)

The most advanced countries in the world are belligerent, U.S. Brits, Japan, Israel, China, Russia, which one of them have not fought a war in their own interests?

Anti-war sentiments are terrorist-loving in the context of our day. As a chinese saying goes: "kindness to the enemy is the cruelty to oneself", please, be kind to yourself, just for once.

Grrr...I typed a long comment but it went missing when I wanted to submit it.

Anyway, I agree! Excellent piece.

The Americans must not pull out from Iraq until the situation in the chaotic region stabilizes. I'm sure the Americans have learnt from their experience of leaving the Afghans alone after the Afghans helped drive the Soviets out of Afghanistan.

About the ceasefire in Lebanon and Israel, I think it is a premonition of an even bigger and disastrous war between them and very possibly within the region, which will draw very serious attention from the world. I believe both sides are still on their toes as they see that war is the only solution now, so the ceasefire only serves as a breather.

it may be because your father told your father's brother's daughter who then when on to tell your father's brother's son... and here we are!

About this blog

A lot of stuff about what I think, and not what I am about. Which is good, because I would be able to make fun of Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Penn State, and discuss on our futility against Ohio State. (But Woo Shoelace!)

I still think the word "god" should not be capitalized, because like oxygen or air or universe, it's an entity, and is not specific or special in its meaning.
