In today’s geopolitical World, individuals criticize you based on whose side you appear to take. I support global peace, prosperity, and personal security for all of humanity; consequently, I will support anyone who promotes humanity with their Words and Deeds. It is accepted that every country and everyone worldwide has a right to defend themselves. However, there is a central question that must be asked and must be answered. Specifically, when does a nation’s or an individual’s action cross over from proportionate legitimate self-defense to genocidal disproportionality? Therefore, if you want to know which side I am on, I am on the “Side of Humanity.” My concept, “Side Of Humanity,” is bounded by the twin factors of morality and justice.
The “Most High” blessed this World with enough wealth and resources to guarantee that the entirety of the human family can enjoy a wholesome standard of living and quality lives. Yet citizens of several countries live with high levels of material comfort; many others live in desperate, long-term, continual poverty. Again, although many countries are spiritually and resource-rich, they are materially poor by design.
Years of divide and conquer, invented wars, and ongoing conflicts make it impossible for emerging countries to create safe and secure environments for their people. Violence and conflict most often have devastating consequences on the people involved; however, innocent civilians are victimized because of the circumstances of their birth.
The Middle Eastern Islamic Communities specifically are failing their citizens by engaging in conflicts that they can’t WIN. Insane talk of Combatants obliterating a major power is a perception and deception of reality. A combatant’s attack on a significant military power, for the most part, is committing “Suicide by Military”; hence, Combatants engage in actions that provoke a considerable military force into killing them and their people.
The Combatants also put the very lives of their own citizens in supreme danger. Again, Combatants committing actions that cause a fatal response is “Suicide by Military.” Let’s be clear: Any so-called leader who values personal power over the well-being of their people is no leader at all. The world community cannot allow a lack of empathy for so-called radical groups to normalize the collective punishment of innocent civilians in radical groups’ proximity.
If attacked, most Major Military Powers (MMP) will not hesitate to use their significantly disproportionate military advantage to annihilate individuals and destroy entire communities. Misguided Combatants are responsible for the preventable tragedies leveled against the lives of their people.
It’s one thing to desire to destroy a Major Military Power; however, having the ability to destroy an MMP is quite another thing. On the other hand, any MMPs can destroy the Combatants and their people’s total infrastructure (i.e.) hospitals, kill healthcare professionals, and damage and destroy cultural, educational, and religious sites in hours. This instruction includes the destruction of schools, universities, churches, mosques, and libraries, which will cause significant setbacks for their society for years to come. No one leader should bring this kind of destruction down on people. Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a Pathway to PEACE.
Countries below are currently at war or in conflict: the Russia and Ukraine war, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, Libya, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar, Colombia, Mali, and the Israeli-Gaza conflict. Thousands of Innocent civilians are dying every second, minute, hour, and every day! Ultimately, no one WINS in any of these hate-filled situations.
Developing countries must engage in Course Corrections – For the sake of The People and to end the self-inflecting wounds that keep them in a state of deprivation and dispossession. Human beings worldwide deserve to have the right to live in peace, security, and prosperity like members of the European Union and NATO countries. It’s time to de-escalate, not escalate, the tragic events that are causing the death and destruction of people around the World.
If developing countries seek peaceful coexistence and follow a course-correct strategies, they could work through the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, and other international bodies to fight for civil, social, political, and economic justice peacefully. They can use international institutions to help acquire fair market value for their natural resources; therefore, they can use their wealth derived from their natural resources to ensure better living standards, healthcare, and education opportunities for their citizens.
The global community must work to “End All Wars” and move to expand climate control activities. We desperately need PEACE, and the Global community must demand PEACE now! For the sake of the children, for the sake of the mothers, and for the sake of all innocent human beings still living in conflict areas, we must have PEACE! We cannot allow a lack of empathy for so-called radical groups to normalize the punishment of innocent civilians living in close proximity to targeted radical groups.
If I could speak to leaders of Hamas, Houthi rebels, Hezbollah, and others, I would remind them that they cannot WIN a military conflict against any major powers. If they don’t pursue a Course Correction now, they will just continue to exacerbate the trauma, pain, and deaths of innocent civilians and the wholesale destruction of the infrastructure needed to sustain their lives. I would say to them your people have suffered enough and deserve a peaceful solution to present and future conflicts. We live in the 21st century and need emotionally intelligent “THOUGHT LEADERS” who tell the truth no matter whom it exposes. “Though Leaders” must also seek the truth in others and stand up and negotiate strategies to bring about lasting PEACE.
In Closing, large-scale bombings, which kill thousands of innocent people, also have a major negative environmental impact on society. It is well known that war and military activities produce extensive amounts of greenhouse gases and pollution and cause resource depletion. The World needs PEACE and Clean Renewable Energy. The environmental impacts of war include the collapse of institutions, leading to environmental risks that can impact people’s health, livelihoods, and security far into the future. Collectively, we must end the reckless use of explosive weapons that cause massive damage to civilian and industrial infrastructure, resulting in the release of hazardous materials such as asbestos, industrial chemicals, and fuels and the contamination of air, soil, and water resources.
