Travesty of Peace
Many nations have large trained armies ready to go to war while few nations have any forces trained for peacekeeping mission. The United States and the State of Israel have used collective punishment against the Arab and Islamic people in the War on Terror. What can be destroyed in 34 days can take a life time to build i.e. Lebanon. The fact there aren’t any permanent International Peacekeeping Forces organized and trained for peacekeeping missions is a crime within its self. With all of the financial resources the military nations spend on war and so little on diplomacy and the humanitarian projects at the end of war.
There should be a global military tax placed on the international trade of military hardware. The revenue from these tax dollars should be use to finance the infrastructure of a permanent International Peacekeeping Forces. There should be fines placed on those nations that go into unsanctioned war. Penalties should be paid for by those nations that commit the war crimes and not by people of another nation on another continent such as after World War II. Only by strengthening the international platform of diplomacy and the international humanitarian NGO’s will peace and security have a chance to grow.
