  •  There is plenty of nationalism on Kos (6+ / 0-)

    this can be seen in how we are too quick to apply the hero label to everyone who wears a military uniform.

    I am not a pacifist. I would do everything that I can to support any flagrant aggression against my family or my country. However, I fully respect pacifists. They make much more sense than do warmongers. That nationalism is a form of racism is something I completely agree with.

    I am a combat veteran who quickly learned that wars are stupid and wars are not glorious. When most young people join the military they do not have a clue regarding how propaganda and war-profiteering works.

    All Quiet on the Western Front is the best anti-war movie that is ever seen. It shows how the young are recruited, and also shows how war are idiotic and senseless.

    War is costly. Peace is priceless!
