Yes, war is hell. It is awful. It involves human beings killing other human beings, sometimes innocent civilians. That is why we despise war.
I was eighteen when I first read Joseph Heller's stunning work 'Catch-22,' and was at that time close to being drafted for the fruitless and unenlightened war in Viet Nam.
Peace is only better than war when it's not hell too. War being hell makes sense.
Being humble matters.
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
