We want peace, not war.
For all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
—Matthew 26:52, King James Version.
If you attack others, others will attack you, too.
what is wanted from ancient to modern times, from the West to the East, by all saints and sages, the wise, the benevolent, and the good people, is peace not war.
Looking back through human history, we are aware that war can never solve any problem, but create more problems, more disasters to those who are suffering.
However, using the development and achievements of modern technological civilization, we really have the opportunity and capability to accomplish and to maintain a global peaceful society of “being all brothers”.
Nevertheless, if someone wages war around the world on one hand and promotes the false Nobel Peace on the other hand, that is absolutely a liar.
A lifelong cheating never has good ending.
Additionally, for those who always show off their military power to other nations, this means nothing else but only proclaims their ignorance, and moves themselves toward the defeat, because what human desires is peace, not war.
Only human peace can accomplish a great harmonious society.
Human beings would be exterminated eventually.
The 34th President of the United States---- Dwight D. Eisenhower （the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe at World War II）said:
‘World War is very terrible. Human beings should not have war again in the future.’
We want peace! We do not want war!
We want to live in
