Thirdly, you cant compare crime to war. -Macedonian


Really,do you honestly belive that Macedonian?
I'm not talking about some stressed out middle aged drunk that hates his job and shot his wife for not doing the laundry.

Gang wars, turf wars,and internal conflicts such as sect. rivalry.Through much time and thought I have realized that there is little difference in civil war and things of such.African tribes cleansing other tribes,families being slaughtered because they're related to a gangster.The numbers of dead may be different but,the reason behind these things of such remain the same.There are more things in common to your thought of Crime and to War.Don't just study the big wars,observe the small ones that that carry names such as:Conflict,Police action,and Aggressions etc.


...alright you got me. I wasn’t in a gang war state of mind so i really wasn’t thinking about that. I will admit that they are comparable but in terms of mass and intensity- they are still very, very different.

As per the genocide, though its horrendous its not really a crime. Since its usually completely one sided, they aren’t wars either. They are exactly as you said, slaughtering. You cannot commit a crime when there is no law. In this case there isn’t.

That's what Bush is doing right now,for oil.
Thats what happens when you have a texas oil man for president.


Oh I do detest Bush, but I don't think it was all for oil as if it was our oil prices might be a little bit cheaper or atleast would not be rising so fast.

Nonetheless the idiot's days are numbered.



Bush.... there is not a man I detest more. I bet Flava' Flav could have done a better job.

Interesting little tidbit, I have a few cousins all over the world. A few in Finnland, many in India, a few in Dubai, and a Few in Saudi. The ones from Saudi and Dubai tell me there is no real deficit of oil, and no real reason for the price to be rising. The prices are just going up due to overly done speculation.Oil there costs nothing. We're just getting hit hard here.

Yeah. The medical revolution. I mean because of wars amputation has become safer I believe.the best thing war has brought is probably truce. I mean who is going to fight some one you've fought before unless its like a millennium apart, surely I wouldn't. The United Nations was formed off of a predecessor that failed. The best thing war has given is unification or truce. I mean whens the next time your gonna hear some one say "The British are coming!"?

Hmmm...sometimes war brings about new foods...i believe it was WW2 that brought about the invention of the M&M...soldiers needed a small food that could be eaten in battle to give them a little boost of energy...

Onigiri was made to be lightweight and easily carry-able by ashigaru and samurai.

Its interesting what we can come up with to meet the needs that we have at particular time, and in this instance, war.

They aren't too big. You can hold them in your hand easily. I have seen some huge ones though.

An ashigaru is a conscripted soldier. The basic warrior of Japan.
Samurai acted as the elite officers of the ashigaru, with much training, better equipment, and the job as the personal vassals [free servants] to feudal lords [daimyo.]

So they were a platoon that the samurai commanded basically and the samurai were like captains of the guard?

I don't know about that, but I do know that in WW1 & WW2 the Japanese nobles carried swords and many (which I don't know if this is true) called them samurai. I'll look it up real quick.
