The basis of the war and subsequent invasion of Iraq was that the country supposedly had in its possession WMD’s or Weapon’s of Mass Destruction whether nuclear or biological. The dictator was well known for his use of such ruthless tactics as he did with the Kurds who rose against them and he gassed with chemical weapons killing men, women and children all in one swoop. During the early days of the war that was the main focus, to prevent the use and further development of such weapons but now, after years of searching and death, none have still been found. May be that the said weapons have been found but due to certain factors, cannot be disclosed to the world (such as the said weapons coming from a very unlikely source????) which is the case with many of the world’s mysterious events. Missing information, people and research that suddenly just seems to not exist due to sensitive information.
So why do we continue to live on this earth, led by people who think they could change the world into a perfectly peaceful and harmonious society? Well the reason is all around us, for people will always claim to be or to become somebody they are not and people will surely fail at the attempt. That’s where philosophy plays a part for if you sum up all of the events that happen all around us it is based on the very fundamental idea of people who want to exist on their own terms and conditions without anybody controlling it. Yet these very same people benefit from control exercised by governments and politics of the world which is still made up of people who call themselves experts yet forget they are still human imperfections and all. Presidential affairs and the more recently in the long list of government blunders in the UK and around the world of so-called secure information getting lost into oblivion are examples at how we humans will always be humans.
The search for reason for our existence is the fundamental basis for all of this events that happen all around us. We are not in a position to judge people for we are all made up of good and bad in one neat package that can talk, hear, express and so many other things for the embitterment of the human race. We are all part of this earth, whether we like it or not and we all have to play our part, how and what that part is should be the goal of our lives so we can live a little bit longer on this earth in peace and harmony with all mankind. Peace to all, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
