Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace!?

How could we possibly gain peace with war?

When mothers and fathers lost their children
when people lost everything they hold dear with the drop of a bomb
when soldiers witnessed the fall of their comrades
when bodies are sent back home and treated as national heros
when it is "us" against "the others"
when there is no end to greed and hatred

The ball has started rolling
It can no longer be stopped...

Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace essay written by Gore Vidal (Webpage is a review of the article. BTW, it is the first time I came across "Order of Alexander the Great", haven't checked out the Order yet... though it sounds interesting... The brief info stated that it has its roots before the birth of Christ... my "curious radar" is picking up something again... )
