New technology means more business for Israel's munitions industry - a significant part of their export income. Will give new meaning to "carpet bombing". Not sure where the anti-tank equipment will fit "defence", but it will surely sell well abroad.

If you want an example of the devolving nature of humankind. . .

The progress should be about maintaining peace instead

The only people who maintain any form of peace are those who do so, without the aim of any weapons or ammunition.

The only way to live in peace is to be able to defend oneself. Pacisifism isnt viable.

I'm afraid that is the lesson some Palestinian youth have learnt, Carl.
But I don't believe that the lesson is really accurate ..... "Pacifism" isn't the only alternative to war & violence - seeking to understand, find common ground, work together, reject oppression are more viable if one wants peace ....

The only pacifists who arent slaves are those who are defended by others.

Imagine Gandhi's India having been ruled by Nazi Germany rather than the Brittish Empire - what do you think they would have achieved with passive resistance agaist them?

I believe pacifism causes war.

Nope.

War causes war.

We'll have to agree to disagree, then, Carl - because I believe that when two sides both believe that aggression is the only way to act, things deteriorate & can only go from bad to worse.

"Pacifism" can mean total inaction, and can be an excuse for some to do nothing to change what is wrong - but it doesn't HAVE to be synonymous with passivity. One can "fight" without violence, opting for strategies that impact uncomfortably on the "enemy". Tailored to the circumstances. Gandhi's approach worked because there were clear laws, regulations and general integrity in the way Britain ruled - although it wasn't primarily ruled in the interest of the indigenous people. The approach would have had to be very different under a fascist colonial power ....

Well. . . Active Pacifism is a positive, healthy attribute to cultivate. Total inaction normally means being Passive, or even Nihilistic, which can be dangerous and breed a negative attitude towards one's fellow beings and the world. But, actively promoting peace is so far removed from the animalistic, reptilian warlike mentality that feeds a man's (or a woman's) ego as to create a fork or dichotomy in how mankind goes about its life on Earth.

I got involved in a facebook chat earlier on regarding Obama's stance and action against the NRA and Pro-gun creatures, and the level of vitriol sent to me was quite interesting. Moron, England being a toilet, etcetera.

It's as if, if one removes a gun from certain creatures, certain personalities, they act as if their whole world is under threat and in danger of being exterminated. . .

. . . which oddly enough is what some of our forefathers were exceptionally good at, and some of our modern day contemporary civilization continue to perpetuate.
