"An idea no longer shrouded in mist, through wave or ether comes to me, like a star from high up in the skies, or a pearl from the bottom of the sea." - Victor Hugo (Les rayons et les ombres)
. . . and all the other wars for that matter.
As you say - every war. That it what makes it depressing.I also read that if there is a new war anywhere there will always be keen mercenaries raring to go.
And of course there are always anonymous persons and other interested parties including military advisors, weapons dealers, black market salesmen, crooked politicians, stirrers of trouble, publicity seekers, paid protestors, in fact just about every shade of grey as the saying goes, some with an agenda and others on the make, doubtless you'll find every Uncle Tom Cobley lurking about on the fringes when you get right down to it.
Yes it seems like an industry of war and not an industry for peace. I try not to watch the news on television.
I basically use TV as a tool if I want to get some idea about out what's really going on: e.g. sometimes watching the same event on say BBC, RT, Al-Jazeera, CNN, NTV, ST1, Euronews, etc., I find I can generally sieve out much of the bullshit and propaganda.
