    to beat them in a war, you willing to fight? I aint.

    These are the same people who use little girls to clear minefields, and charge 100k waves of unarmed people into front lines to basically catch bullets.

    Iran is OK with losing a million or so people? are we?  for what?

    Bad is never good until worse happens

      and the discussion in the comments is that wars that no one on either side actually wants sometimes get started any way.

      Or, not "no one", but not those ostensibly in charge.

      I don't know if you've ever read about the maneuvering preceding the start of WWI, but no one really wanted war - and yet....

      it would be akin to invading Japan in WWII imo.

      Today, strive to be the person you want to be.
