I have decided to do my research essay on war. To me war has never really made since to me. The bombs, the weapons, all the civilian deaths, the poverty caused by war.

The causes (the deaths) are the same, and so is the heartache and misery inflicted on the innocent. This fascination with killing is shaping our society for the worst!

If there's ever a conflict the 1st words of citizens is "let's bomb them". Put three small children in the sandbox and give them two toys. In fact, give them three, because one of the toddlers won't like his (or hers) and will want the one that another toddler has. Selfishness and violence is not born into us, it is learned and taught threw parents and media. Are we just bulling these countries because we want to be the biggest and coolest, or because we want to be the only ones allowed to chemical and biological weapons and get "fussy" if someone else has them too?

Like the majority of Americans, I've only seen...
