Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
I'm happy to talk with you and answer your question directly. But I don't understand your question. Your question no doubt makes perfect sense, but I am not going to waste time trying to interpret the question when I can simply ask you to rephrase and restate it in a more detailed way.
I will treat your question in a straight forward manner without the use of slippery tactics. Btw, I'm not sure you want to know what I really think. Nevertheless, I enjoy talking to you and ask for your understanding. Thanks.
Maybe your reasons would make perfect sense to me and others if you took the time to explain it. But as it stands, for no reason you and quite a few others feel that taking an alternative approach to reach the goal is the same as defeat.
However, you're smart enough to know that it's not the same as defeat and something is preventing you from just saying it. It's ok - you're not the only pro-war person to ever have the view and express it, but not explain it.
It makes no sense to support a war effort - without explaining your reasons. War's a heavy, troubling and costly venture and should only be done so when it's absolutely worth the flesh and blood spilt.
My husband's flesh and blood spilt - all because some people are being protective of their pride. My children without a father year after year, all because of pride and the fear of being thought of as "defeated"
Who will think of us as defeated if we press on without military tactics? The world? No - just you and people like you. You're the only ones holding onto it.
