Perpetual peace is no empty idea, but a practical thing which, through its gradual solution, is coming always nearer its final realization..."
IMMANUEL KANT
The United Nations defines "major wars" as military conflicts inflicting 1,000 battlefield deaths per year. In 1965, there were 10 major wars under way. The new millennium began with much of the world consumed in armed conflict or cultivating an uncertain peace. As of mid-2005, there were eight Major Wars under way [down from 15 at the end of 2003], with as many as two dozen "lesser" conflicts ongoing with varrying degrees of intensity.
Most of these are civil or "intrastate" wars, fueled as much by racial, ethnic, or religious animosities as by ideological fervor. Most victims are civilians, a feature that distinguishes modern conflicts. During World War I, civilians made up fewer than 5 percent of all casualties. Today, 75 percent or more of those killed or wounded in wars are non-combatants.
Africa, to a greater extent than any other continent, is afflicted by war. Africa has been marred by more than 20 major civil wars since 1960. Rwanda, Somalia, Angola, Sudan, Liberia, and Burundi are among those countries that have recently suffered serious armed conflict.
War has caused untold economic and social damage to the countries of Africa. Food production is impossible in conflict areas, and famine often results. Widespread conflict has condemned many of Africa's children to lives of misery and, in certain cases, has threatened the existence of traditional African cultures.
Conflict prevention, mediation, humanitarian intervention and demobilization are among the tools needed to underwrite the success of development assistance programs. Nutrition and education programs, for example, cannot succeed in a nation at war. Billions of dollars of development assistance have been virtually wasted in war-ravaged countries such as Liberia, Somalia, and Sudan.
---To me this kind of war fair is unacceptable to radical Islam its a way of life. If Islams leaders want war stand up like men and fight. Or let the radicals do your fighting for you eventually Islam will be branded the if it dose not stop the nonsense. This your religion it time stand up and take these clowns down. Pointing finger at ever one else will get old. Now with the news being broad casted around the world in the blink of an eye. it get real old really fast now. it not like back in 600 AD where you could kill and take what you wanted and go unanswered. Then you point out the crusades as if you did not bring it down upon yourselves. ------------------------------------------------------------------------Now it can be a push of a button and millions will die I 'm sorry to say America will react only after that has happen. My Question is how many American civilians will die in this great holy war? Jihad of yours. When we launch war head that have been sitting up for a some time do not go where they intended to go. I have seen to many solid rocket engines misfire then correct them-self but not hit the target But then again close with a nuke is like close with a hand grenade some innocent people will die. Is this the game you really want to play. Call off your dog put them down if needed and stop financing so called Islamic Terrorist. In the end all of Islams will answer if this goes unchecked. All I ask is for is to stop the silly actions and stop the wars Not hard if the followers of Islam put pressure on the top Religious order/ government. Get rid of the parts off the Quran that cause this problems.

Just to simplify things most wars now a days are aimed at the civilian population. 75 % are the victims. To rule over other by fear blowing up building or using bond in car or other vehicles. The term War on Terror but if these Ideology behind this act's off terror people will view radical and non radical as the same if it dose not stop. The money and arms can be tracked down to a point. then get lost in the Islamic banking system. The one thing I noticed here Muslim do not integrate into the whole of American culture. That's there chose, it dose raise put them on the radar scope as being non American. Basically the want to live here but want nothing to do with American itself. Do Americans learn from the past. No i do not think so if has not happened in there life time it never happen that the general attitude I pick up.----------------------------------------Ballistic missile use solid propellant the old the propellant gets the less stable it becomes. Misfire between stages once launched the cat out of the bag. There no magic button to self destruct that movie material. By the time you figured it did mess up it has deployed its weapons. On thing people may not understand losing American service person to this stuff and I do not care how many die to get that killer. I am feed up with people that want to blame us for there own problems. I do remember embassy's being blown to hell, the hijackings and not 9-11 which was second attack and did bring them down. The Frigate that had it side blasted in. If it was one Isolated problem that's one thing but this is not a Isolated problem
