I respectfully disagree. Is the OP the instigator of violence and war -or- might our own "elected" leaders, perhaps be the real instigators? Our Gov. seems to love war. We have the War on Drugs. the War on Terror, the War on Poverty, the War on Illiteracy, etc.

The "wars" on Poverty, drugs, illiteracy etc. were fancy slogans used to divert attention from the fact that they are all efforts of government to expand their sphere of power over us by encroaching into areas that should be solely our own personal responsibility. This is ostensibly for the "good" reason that we are not capable of caring for ourselves, therefore, government must assume responsibility for us. In truth, it is simply a matter of exercising more and more governmental power over our everyday lives and the decisions we make.
