    I think i have a way of stopping military conflicts - getting the soldiers to say "no." this would be where every newspaper or church, and, in some cases, senators, get together to identify with the soldiers. they could go visit them at their bases and find the feel of someone fighting for their country with their lives on the line and the country depending on them.

    The way soldiers get conditioned for this sort of thing is a long process. first, they get to stamina and fitness training. this is where they start to push themselves 'to the point of injury' for the sake of not letting their fellow soldiers down, and, getting fed and so forth in the base. slowly they learn to drop people at the order of their commanders, and so forth. this conditioning is what many would call 'professionalism' to the chain of command, of course.

    This is also 'brainwashing.' hearing orders repeated over and over again goes along the lines of police massacres where the police, similarly trained, would go to great lengths of immorality to serve their commander, who serves the commissioner - in this case - and then serves the minister of police or the generals in military. these people serve the president, often a pencil pusher that is apathetic to the needs of those on either side of the barrels of the guns.

    Anyway, i am talking about taking a step back and humanizing the soldiers. to sit with them and feel what they feel, and let them know there is someone out there that feels it for them. if the soldiers were to refuse to fight and massacre other tribes in africa, for a good example, then there would be no more suffering. if all soldiers refused to fight, there would be no more war, and, there would be no more money wasted on war.

    What am i talking about? imagine [a] declares war on ? then, [a] spends money on the war, killing 's people, reducing their country to nothing structure wise, so they would have nothing to fight over, yes? this is what brings africa to a standstill, besides the other things like refugees that are produced.

    So, if the soldiers refused to fight, then they would save lives, save money and save infrastructure. this would be good for both countries - what are they fighting for by the way? they tell the people it is for a better life, but i doubt it.

    Having these people say to the masses that this is what happens, and being there for the soldiers, means they will not 'feel alone.' knowing that there is a chance, if the other side also refuses to fight, that there will be no fighting, means great gains for all.

    It's important to have high hopes.

    Unattainable ones however, can be more damaging than empowering.

    I hate to tell you this, but the human race has always been good at killing each other.

    So while it is nice to dream, that is all it will ever be.

    Not to mention the fact that mere soldiers aren't the problem.

    Politicians, & commanders are.

    I liked thus melody but even many will not have military forces if true info there are Russia, N.Korea and Iran at least in militaries left so we can't do thus method if they proof to attack none military zone and then they want some Nazism in Germany in 1940s to killing humanity how is missable to take away all defence forces in World.

    So it will never happening.
