Humanity’s most ancient and revered tradition: Warfare. It’s a funny thing. We talk about how war is a necessary evil and how, while sad, it must continue for the good of mankind. But really, WHY is war necessary? War has never been so much a business as it is now, what with the industrialization of the process. Since the Great War, war has been used as a moneymaking process.

He wasn’t visibly armed, but she knew him well enough to know that he was bound to have some kind of weapon hidden beneath the layers of his clothes. Carise didn’t trust him completely–she didn’t trust anyone.
But she knew she didn’t need an army when she had him to fight for her.

cruel , interesting and wrong what better way to waste your time then to pay a fare for war. Nonsense right?

Warfare is sad,but yet, what makes it bad? The death? The destruction? The fact that there isn’t peace. With out war there would be no peace. We wouldn’t know peace, we would take it for granted. With out war, we are nothing. War is a part of human history and behavior.

I wage war with my thoughts every day and my mind is like a battle field, scarred with the ideas that battle it out in my head. It’s constant warfare and I can only escape by writing it down on my blog http://howtobecharming.wordpress.com

(A very bad thing, right? Right?)
E turned on to her side, facing the wall not the window but the sounds of the march could still be heard, the flashes from the fireworks still be seen. The parade was loud and jarring and close, closer than anything had seemed- or been- in months. It sounded like war.

warfare causes the most dramatic cautastrophes. Not only does it cause a dilmena with the soilders that are fighting, but at home, the spouses of these soilders are faced to deal with the family alone. This world should invest in other resources besides violence. Why is it that these people think they are doing any good? Is it becuase of their religion is telling them theat they are warding off “evi,l-doers”? Or, is it that they are just acting as infan

She doesn’t budge.
“I told you, I’m not going.”
A minute ticks by and I can feel her breath on my skin.
I know it’s futile, but I say it anyway.
She just shakes her head, her feet firmly planted on the line in the sand – no closer.

War? What makes war bad? Is it the destruction? The death? Or is it the lack of peace? With out war, however, would we know peace? We would take it for granted, we are conditioned to war as being normal.
in the minds of the wicked, in the minds of the poor, in the minds of the anyone, with nothing more then a dream, their thoughts, their conscience, minds are war, mine’s divided.

i seem to be almost obsessed with this subject matter, but it is important to think about it so that we won’t forget what people then and there have gone through.

I think of all the warfare that has occurred in the past 100 years. The U.S. shouldn’t get involved in such audacity because it’s taking a toll on our national debt. What does war get us? Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

warfare is a form of love. love will destroy ones soul but bring a new beginning. fight but fight for your soul. be strong in war. fight back. retreat. be fair to those who you are fighting.
By Kelsey DeSanctis on 10.16.2011
Guns, violence, death. Why is there such a thing. It seems as though it was put on this earth to keep the population number down. Without warfare this world would have already been overpopulated and people would be dying of starvation.

All is fair in love and war.

the internal warfare is finally over. I have revealed my deepest darkest secret and I feel empty. It’s like I don’t know what to do with myself because there is no personal level anymore.

It was only a matter of time, at this rate, before the world sprung into all-out warfare. He had to find a way to fix the problem and to get himself off the hook, all in about twelve hours.
He ran a hand through his hair. This would definitely be fun.

Crashes and bangs
Rape and assault
Guns and swords
Hate and Love
Warfare at its finest
By Jbesty URL on 10.16.2011
this warfare on their hearts could not go on. it was beyond the heart, really; it was in the air they breathed, the information they exchanged, the dreams they imagined–it was everywhere and it was consuming. it gnawed at their souls on lonely nights and rampaged through hammering brains during great battles, dragging the best down and the worst out. it was chaos, every kind of war, in the streets the government the home the heart, and it wasn’t going to stop anytime soon.

Fair war. No. Not ever. War is never fair. I wish it were warfar. Far far far. Beyond the reaches of this earth.

He knew not to call it spiritual warfare, although that’s what it was. Some were interested in winning hearts and minds, but what he wanted was souls.

Let us engage
in the art of war
whose majesty lies
in its savage seduction
in its beautiful carnage
and graceful destruction
where shoots push through
the cindery ash
into the afternoon sun

Warfare. You wrote your name on my heart and skin. Warfare, you stained my blood and my feet. You deceived my eyes. You broke me. Warfare. You made me happy. And gutless.
By Carlee C on 10.16.2011
Gunfire exploding all around me in bright bursts. Soldiers in green drab, sweat dripping from brows. Canteens and slop in the mess-hall. Loud noise and scary silence. Pain. Death. Loss. Families crying for loved ones draped in a flag. Foreign voices speaking foreign languages in harsh tones. Politics. Money. Greed.

agressive, sad, people dying, this word is like depressing, i just think in wwII, like really really SADDDDD :( awwwe.

warfare is something that i personally dont have a lot of personal experience with but my girlfriends brother has seen its effects. i havent even met him yet but i know hes really important to her and the things he has seen in foreign countries are probably astounding and i thank him so much and all of the other soldiers risking their lives everyday.

Overrated, unnecessary. Too normal, not thought about enough, yet thought about too much. Central part of our international affairs, yet focus should be placed elsewhere.
By Madeline on 10.16.2011
warfare defined is a basically a fight between two.
can be horrifically beautiful fights.

The guns shot could be hear for miles. The background blazed with fire. He was no longer a person, but a killing machine, out to get anything and everything in his way to avenge his brothers death. After all, they had killed his brother, so why shouldn’t HE kill THEM? The answer was clear as he saw the bodies piling up. He wasn’t them. He wasn’t a monster.
By Almost Genius on 10.16.2011
I live a silent war within myself.
Multiple sides against eachother, against themselves. Fighting for the inexistent truth. Fighting for the sake of fighting.
The Universe is within me. The whole world is at it’s demise.
The truth will some day rear it’s face. And the war will end and quickly as it started.
All will be at peace.

the conflict within her built up until it was pushing itself into every part of her being. the one thing she desired was piece of mind. all she wanted was peace.

Warfare can be both terrifying and beautiful in it’s orchestrated ferocity. It is an art and a sport, but also a terrible, dangerous game.

the city was bombard with cruel warfare. explosions were imminent and many lives were lost. sadness overwhelmed the population. It was the governments fault that cindy lost the love of her life due to a bombing.

In a time of great despaired and loneliness amongst those left, the only hope left lied within one, by the name of Micah. Micah alone possessed the ability and strength to fight back. To give hope to those that seemed to have lost their hope.
By Seirra on 10.16.2011
In times of agony and bombs exploding we use the term warfare. Its rather funny because while its called war”fare” its anything but fair. War is angery and horrible and good people die while bad ones triumph. It is the worst side of human nature, and yet we cannot get rid of it. We cannot escape the evil part of ourselves and war is inevitable.
By Megan on 10.16.2011
I hate war. I’m kind of a pacifist. But then saying I’m a pacifist is a contradiction to other things that I am. Especially considering I’m a firm believer in the whole “eye for an eye” thing. I just really hate war, though. Religion and oil…who needs ‘em, eh?

sing to me a song
reach down deep in my heart
pull my emotions
a tune to make me cry
for i have no tears left to spare
please read to me a story
turn each page slowly
spin my feelings with a painful tale
one that outdoes all these others
for none have done so
more than i can stomach, these raw onions i’m fed
watching families worldwide bury their dead
and business booms, silver spoons for weapons producers
write me a oneword entry
one for the ages
seasoned with wit and sage
head’s been wrenched
for it’s drenched in my own vomit
need tears of joy
a change of pace
well faring people halting warfare

its so dumb but it reminds me of modern warfare 2 and the new modernwarfare 3 thats coming, out and i am looking forward to playing it. I would love for it to come out sooner thou, imm tired of mw2.
By Jay URL on 10.16.2011
guns, violence, death. Our generations are built around it, in our video games, movies, books. It’s everywhere on the internet. It defines us as people; our obsession with violence ad gore.
