    War has nothing good for the people. It destroys civilizations and ruins the children and the adult equally. The wounds of nuclear radiations of the World War II have not yet healed. The life of children, our next generations, have been made miserable. Due to destruction of schools, children leave the education and pick up the weapon to fight war.

    War has no limits. It knows no boundaries. Once the war starts, it takes its own course. It is easy to start a war but very difficult to stop it. Just see the Iraqis dying in thousands, despite the fact that US started this war to curb terrorism and to promote peace. But after seven years of war, peace is still illusive.

    The question arises: Does the peace have limits? Is the war limitless? If the wars go on unabated in every nook and corner of the world, then should the people stop thinking about peace and take the war as order of the day?

    Light of Peace: Peace has Limits, but War has no Limits, no Boundries- A Japanese perception of War and Peace.

    Interesting topic.

    I think peace is a laudable goal but not at all costs and not as an end in itself. The pursuit of peace should not make you coward or bow to injustice or bestiality.

    I think Will Durant put is nicely when he talked about the Indian civilization.

    The bitter lesson that may be drawn from this tragedy is that eternal vigilance is the price of civilization. A nation must love peace, but keep its powder dry.
