A brief look at the World

Watching some headlines it seems that we are on the Apocalypse. For instance on Reuters I read that "Taliban deploy 10,000 fighters for attack"and that "U.S.-Iraqi forces meet little resistance in Baghdad". At BBC I read that "Chad may face genocide, UN warns". It is war, war and more war. I know that it has been always like that (I don't remember one year of my life that there was a war in this world). But it seems to me that there is a difference between old wars and the XXI century world. We no longer have ideology behind a war. There is no different sides that want to develop people welfare through different means (like Communism Vs Capitalism).
Some say that ideology is dead. I am a sceptic, I don't believe in that, I rather believe that we are living a period that ideology is resting, probably to "blow up" in a near future...

there is always a purpose for a war and there are always at least two sides.The only difference that matters to me though and should do to the rest of the world is that above all ideas and ideologies, the only HOLY war, the only reason you should kill, is WHEN you preotect you home and I wouldn't mention your interests, because your interests could be thousands of miles away....just like the USA's at Iraq....
So,as simple as that,as long mankind lies in ignorance and stupidity, some few will dominate...everywhere...

I agree that only a defensive war can be somehow reasonably. But I would like to live in a world where there could be wars without anyone being killed...
