Ok 7rob7, I Get Your Postion On War....

.....and all things war-like. But just take this as a piece of art. A single human painted this by hand on a 28mm figure:

That's amazing. That dude could be a world-class surgeon with that degree of eye-hand coordination, yesno?

That's not war: that's art. It's stunning, and I am humbled by its excellence.

Re: my position -- War in the past I can do nothing about: to not acknowledge it would be a foolish waste of time. What I'm against is that war is still considered a valid negotiating tool by too, too many of the people who have weapons of war.
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be; it's easy.

Mike's an awesome dude. Along with that painting skill, he's quite the story teller and can turn a tabletop "war game" into hours of entertainment for kids. They end up not playing a war game but getting caught up in Mike's retelling of history and getting the kids to interact with each other, either as opposite sides or as team mates and none of them notice the education, just the fun.

We're a violent species. It's only been 5,000 years since we were all hunter-gatherers struggling for survival in a world where life was nasty, brutal and short.

Evolution doesn't work that fast. I'm hopeful for the future, tho ... :-
