At least guns kill quickly. Handbags, especially when filled to capacity as most women do with junk, are painful and rarely kill.

No it is not inevitable, given that we are working within a finite framework.

But very likely.

Why cant we just have a nice swiss approach to everything. I do believe though, if it gets to a point where the UN has A LOT of power and has its own army... that there wont be any other reasons for nations to have international armies. Riots etc can be controlled by police, even other things like uprisings etc.

there would be no massive world war in the future at all. it is just pointless for countries. at the moment the main priority of the countries is the prosperity and the economy, particularly in the western world. everything is interlinked and they would not want to take a risk. a superpower doesnt even want to risk a war with Iran, because it would reflect bad on America's economy

As long as you see the blazing sun in the sky, as long as you see men roaming the earth with arms of any kind, as long as men will be naturally be endowed with the thing called “the drive” to have more (u know what I mean) and the drive and the EGO to prove the other or other tribe wrong and smaller,
The thing called war will always be a reality as is the reality of life itself.
Correct me if I am wrong.

I believe that war is inevitable. Situations arise that make war inevitable. When you have a person like Adolph Hitler come into power who wants to erase a whole race of people from existence war becomes inevitable. When the British started sending troops over to the Americas in the 18th century to keep their "subjects" in line, war becomes inevitable. The colonists went to the Americas to escape the king of England and his oppressive rule, yet England was still ruling the colonists for over a century after they left from three thousands miles away. There will always be evil people in this world that will want to destroy and overtake other people and countries.

Absolutely. War is politics by other means. Part of the human condition.

Read Clausewitz.

A another war world doesn't seem very likely to me. Smaller wars between individual countries seem inevitable, though.
