    Thank you for this Lawrence, It's true no war. brings peace. I wrote a piece of satire a little while ago called 'A Lovely War' in which I talk about good old fashion pay back. That's what I believe we are experiencing now and when the kids who are the victims of this current convlict grow up? ? ? So we can expect more of the same in say twenty years. War breeds war, you can't mate dogs with cats and you can't marry war with peace. If you want peace practice peace. 10
