War is (still) a (immature) racket

Why do we still war?

Courier Mail ran a story today about Russian submarines in our Pacific region. Personally I have no issue with Russia … It’s the drills they run with commie China that grabs my attention. Then again, Russia hates NATO building themselves up around Russia … yet here they are basing  subs (and whatever else) in our Pacific region.

Usually folks in the heavily moderated Couriermail comment section (unlike the free flowing RT.com comments section) waffle on about how one side will beat the other … and or go on about the wasted billions of tax payers money.

Me? I just wonder why after 2.8  million years we humans still need to kill each other over dirt and who’s cloud fairy’s / dictators … are best.

If we could figure that out, then the tit-4-tat, and wasted tax payers money issues … wouldn’t be an issue.

Weird isn’t it. Tax payers that fund the subs, bombs and bullets, have to be evolved, mature and law abiding. While those that collect the taxes and pull the triggers … are still backward, non-law abiding and immature.

A little mentioned US General called USMC General Darlington Smedley Butler (whom had command of half a million troops) woke up to war, and wrote a small few page booklet about it called “War Is A Racket”. (Free PDF version)
