Everyone has seen videos of old enemies meeting in friendship long after the war is over. After WWII Germans and Americans would get together over a few beers. Vietnam was the war I grew up with. To this day old ‘nam soldiers get together with their counterparts. Recently I saw a video of the American pilot meeting with the Serbian who shot down his stealth fighter during out little Balkan campaign. Old men of war can put aside their animosity and shake hands with their counterparts.
It’s always a heart warming scene. Often they mourn the lost of comrades and shake their heads at the pointless waste of it all.
Let’s skip right to the shaking hands part without all the killing and destruction that goes on before. I don’t have anything against Syrians, Iranians, or anyone else for that matter. It’s the politicians and the businesses who profit that send regular people to kill each other. Joe average certainly doesn’t benefit from any of this. Why should he be the one who suffers and dies? Let’s shove our spear shaking leaders aside so we get right to the meeting fellow human beings in peace part.
