peace, politics and profit

Reader comment on item: Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty

Submitted by trans-parere (Canada), Nov 21, 2006 at 14:41

As harsh and cynical as it may sound; the world over politics is directly linked to business, and war and peace are played as equal inducements to manufacture the climate that will allow business to continue.

How often we regret, or see in hind sight a lost opportunity for a better, broader, more lasting, understanding free of pretense or deceit. We make and accept the best agreements we can get at the time and hope that by upholding our end of the bargain the other side will respond in kind or more hopefully, come to enjoy the profit found in mutual agreement and cultivate a more reasoned approach to world affairs.
How I agree, and hope we all learn from our mistakes.

I should also say how I hope we learn before we all make any further mistakes. This planet is all "we" have, and" we" can't let those who want to rule but, do not value life to destroy it for the rest of us.
