Dharmabum Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 Got a straight-forward question for all the peaceniks out there: Who does more to advance World Peace than the soldiers who fight our wars? The correct answer is certainly not the United Nations, protesters in a circle singing Kumbaya or Bono at Wembley. Sorry to rain on your parade. Nothing against the soldiers but they certainly don't advance world peace. Soldiers may help keep the peace under certain circumstances but they can also make a bad situation worse. In the end, the military is a tool wielded by the political powers that be, for good or ill. Only through the will of the people and their political representives, will world peace be advanced. I believe the members of Led Zep are sympathetic to such notions based upon the lyrical content of their songs ("If we can just join hands!") and their counterculture status.
