The war in Iraq is officially over and all the United States military, soldiers and troops are coming home, I would like to say thank you to them for all their hard work and sacrifice fighting for our country that is the good news. Now the bad news, how long will the peace and quiet last in Iraq and the Middle East in general without the American soldiers being there to keep the peace and not to add salt to the wound but I believe the war in Afghanistan is basically the same problem. My question is why does the United States have to get involved in other countries to help keep the peace, is it possible that the other countries can get along without any problem or the U.S. being there. My point is the recent war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan is mainly between two group(s) that have different religious customs and beliefs and they do not accept one another at all which leads to conflict and war ultimately. I personally believe that we should accept and respect each others beliefs and ideas (religious and other things) and just live in peace. Now if that does not work, I say we start using a strong session of Mediation and/or Conflict Resolution if it works here in the United States then I say we formally introduce it to the world anything that will help keep the United States troops, soldiers and military home is worth investigating not only for the United States sake but for the worlds sake as well. This upcoming new year, I think we should all start using our hearts in addition to our heads.
