Talking is better....surely?

Ive always been taught that it takes a bigger, better person to walk away from any conflict, argument etc.
So here we are at war and so many needless deaths, so many injured and what for?? surely we should sit down and keep talking !!

These people in high places are making all the decisions, id like to see them make the same decision if it was their Son/Daughter who was on that frontline. Id wonder how they would cope with the fact that everytime the phone rings they are thinking its that dreaded phonecall to say they have lost a loved one. Everytime they listen to the news and hear that another person from the armed forces has been killed and they dont even know where their loved one is. Yeah I suppose for the famillies they are going through hell at the moment......who wouldnt be :(

    The trouble is not that people are not doing enough talking, it's that they are not doing enough honesty.

    That, added to the problem that people tend to always think that what they believe others have to believe as well (eg : democracy is the best way)....

    I'm against war too Becky but here's a thought.

    The UN was talking to Saddam...since before I could talk.
    It's true and sad.:(

    I see what you mean Becky but it is also true that Saddam has killed many of his own people thus it is not necessarily true that lives are being wasted now as this would be the case to some extent anyway.

    I agree that diplomacy would have been better though and that war is unjustified.....
