Give peace chance

The ones that send them to war. You would have thought having gone through the horrors of it themselves in the First World War they would have never done it again.
At least the children who had had to go through the war, those men that had to go through the Hell would never have wanted to send their children into war again, but they did! It doesn't seem to take them long to forget the horrors and Hell of war.
Especially their elders, it's their parents who are to blame, the politicians, militarists and greedy rich. Proud politicians, selfish parents. But I think this younger generation is fed up with the war. They've seen the horrors and heard the wars. Some of them have been through the horror or war already, Vietnam and whatnot. I think that they're just going to flatly refuse to fight, flatly refuse to go to war.
How can a leader be a Christian and order billions to be spent on such nightmare armaments? How can he be a Christian and order boys to the battle? That's what the Pacifists teach, the Quakers teach, that it takes two to make a fight. If you refuse to fight, then your enemy has nothing to fight about and there wouldn't be any wars, if you just flatly refused to fight. The Quakers teach if the enemy wants to take over, let them take over. Give peace chance.
