    I never really understood this concept.
    It’s like… you and the other guy have guns pointed at each other’s head, and the only thing keeping him from pulling the trigger is the fact that your gun is more likely to kill him than his is to kill you.
    Sure, neither of you are pulling the trigger, but it’s not really peace if you’ve got guns aimed at each other.


    As Admiral “Fitz” said on West Wing, “I can tell the difference between peacetime and wartime anymore.”

    The Cold War effectively threw the idea of “Peace” out the window. There will always be lingering tensions between different factions, and they will arm themselves as precaution. They will eventually posture and commit “exercises” or even boundary tests as further action. Engagements can result from this, and ongoing wars can result from that.

    “Peace” is what you get when you’re too far from the battlefield to see the fighting, but there’s hardly any place left that doesn’t have an involvement in ongoing conflicts (either you’re involved with troops, or your backyard is the disputed territory/where two or more forces are scrapping)

    (the phrase erroneously posits that overpowering a hostile faction grants “victory” in a conflict and thus ensures “peace” rather than opposition; but see above)


    Or “CAN’T tell the difference” 😛


    A good theory, until you realize the other guys can buy guns, too –
