As long as wars are fought in the name of peace, there will always be war, with peace never achieved.

Wars may be fought in the name of peace, religion, security, righteous indignation or whatever other excuse they can think of, but they're mostly done for profit.

Of all the activities humans engage in, none is more profitable than war. Governments spend themselves broke on war, and every dollar spent on war is a dollar earned by someone, and a lot of it goes into a few very deep pockets.

I once read a book called 'The Conspirators, Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider' by Al Martin. It was published in 2001, and the manuscript was completed just after the 2000 election, and at the end of the book he made a prediction about what the Bush presidency would hold. He said something to the effect of "expect a bogeyman to emerge, nobody makes any money unless there's a bogeyman."

What you're saying then is those promoting most any war want a piece of the action... a slice of the pie... to profit at the expense of those who can and will be suckered into doing the actual fighting.

There will always be wars, or talk of wars. Sad that people can't get along.

Peace does get achieved in civilized countries , we fought two wars with Germany and we have been at peace for 73 years...but wars will continue forever because there are countries with leaders that want more power and war is their only solution..
