Si vis pacem, para bellum

It is getting increasingly difficult for me to comment on the world situation.

The conflicts are rising, and being a man of peace, this is a problem.

I believe in a liberating war or a war to solve conflicts, where no other option is available.

If one side keeps on fighting, the other side needs to fight as well, that is the way the world works. We all live in the same world, and believing that paradise is easily available is a folly, it can be reached through hard word and sacrifice, but truly the material world will put up barriers for us to climb.

War is a part of the material world, and only if we get to have a wise and honest approach to war, will we reach a peaceful world, that is the paradox of the world.

You have to be able and willing to fight evil, to have peace.

This in no way means, that we have to conqour the world, and subdue it, but it means, that we have to defend ourselves.

Wartidings are rising and the drums are beating, not to hear these drums is a folly. Putting our heads in the sand, will not be of any use to us. But an honest appraisal of the conflicts we approach is the only way forward.

We have lived in peace for so long, now it is over.

China rises to meet our challenge, islamists in Europe are threatening the integrity of the democratic state.

These challenges will lead to war, one way or the other, and we need to be able to address them. Be what we also are; warriors of light.

Sad as it is, this the world we are living in. Ignoring it, will be at our peril, rising to meet the challenges with candor and wisdom is the sad, but only true way.

It really saddens me to convey these tidings, but as the Romans said; if you want to avoid a war, you have to be ready for war at all time. We need to be ready for war to be able to avoid it.

Si vis pacem, para bellum.

G-d bless the peace we strive to find.
