NO MORE WAR!
We killed and maimed the enemy. Our leaders said they knew and we believed true, insane Hussein would unleash horrific weaponry on we. the enemy. We were the infidel from hell he would repel with atom bombs and poison gas and germs and even more for that's what war was all about.
Their weapons would be fund and destroyed and oppressed Iraqi masses would be overjoyed. But when the bombs stopped rumbling down and the buildings stopped tumbling down there was no satisfaction for our action, gratification or elation for what we'd done to their nation. And as so-called peace came to their land, blood still was being poured into their desert sand.
They cried for those who died and those with bodies blown to bits, but that was not the worst of it. The lunacies, the monstrosities, the atrocities were etched into their memories. No matter how hard they tried, these visions of life denied would live with them until they died. Because the war was unjustified.
It didn't have to be this way. A week, a month, another day. More pressure, more diplomacy. What a world this could be if men fought less and reasoned more. No more war! No more war!
