i think the world has to stop building militaries and hate. everyone is created to live peacefully. it is not our fault or responsibilities to suffer and struggle due to any nation's leader. for example, if tow nations argue or have something lead to war, i think these nations leader fight with each other, one to one. not just sitting on their TV watching innocent people fighting for them. wars and hate need to stop, but how can that be done?

WE need military. Why? Simple not everyone is peaceful. Hitler was able to brainwash millions of Germans into believing that Nazism is going to prevail over all. He thought that with his army he could take over the world and for a while he could have! Imagine if he was the only one with an organized military?

Think about the billions of people on this Earth. There is bound to be one person to build up an army. Look at religion in general. The Crusades drove thousands of knights to murder millions in medieval Jerusalem. Not to mention the recent threat of ISIL or ISIS. Plus not everyone plays fair, during WWI and WWII the German military and the Nazis released poisonous gas to win trench warfare which was ILLEGAL at the time, according to the Geneva convention.

We need military not necessarily for attacking or conquering but for defense and security. Imagine a world with no military and one day you wake up to the sound of a M1A2 Abrams rolling down the street blowing up house after house because they think that's what "GOD" wanted them to do.

I made it into three sections so it was easier to categorize and understand their main thesis statement.

A pipe dream. The only way to avoid war is to have an overwhelming military.Like any police force should be used to stop criminal activity by a righteous people.
