War huh yeah, What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing, say it again y'all
War, huh good God
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
Oh, war, I despise
'Cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War means tears to thousands of mothers’ eyes...
Artist:Edwin Starr
Released:1970
As the war in Gaza continues and the civilian death toll rises, one might ask the question that Edwin Starr verbalized so well in his song War, War, What Is It Good For...  If the only answer is that war is for the accession of territory and the show of might where leaders claim, "The other side started it, No, THEY started it".  If that's what all the killing and maiming of children is about... We humans have not evolved very far from our Stone Age days. thinkingblue
