    of a bad war?

    I don't know that I would agree.  Dictatorship invades land wholly occupied for well over a century by another people, and ignores the wishes of the occupants?  What would you have had Maggie Thatcher do, ignore that?

    I would agree with the general point however that women are not by definition peacelovers and peacemakers and it is unfair to men to suggest that.

    •  Fair point. (0+ / 0-)

      My grandfather's theory was that rule by women would lead to an end to all war - both just and unjust. I disagree. Perhaps there would be fewer wars if women had greater power, but I highly doubt it would completely eradicate war.
