Wars don’t solve our problems

2016-10-20 06:00

The war in Syria is no longer a civil war. It has become a global battlefield with over 20 nations actively involved in deadly duels using kids as gun fodder.

No peace is in sight in the world’s conflict zones. Death and destruction continue at full strength.

Wars demolish the progress made by mankind.

World leaders must formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms. Unconditional war can no longer lead to an unconditional victory.

It can no longer serve to settle disputes. Mankind must abolish war, for if we fail, we will inherit a world so devastated by explosions and fire and toxic poisons that even today, we cannot conceive of its horrors.
