What really annoys me both here in the United Kingdom and United States is the right-wing attitude that talking peace means you are weak and appeasing an enemy. All this backed up by the right-wing media which hammers this message home to those gullible people among our societies.
I have to point out going to war and becoming angry are very easy things to do as it takes little real intelligence to take such actions. Such actions are not of the strong or humane people but the actions of weak and insecure people.
It takes far more strength of character and being a real human being to sit around a table peacefully to thrash out the issues which caused the conflict in the first place. In the end it is far more rewarding for both parties even if the path to the resolution is a stormy one.
War should always be the last option not the first as the current governments leaders of the United Kingdom and United States think.
