WW1 and WW2

Cogito ergo sum

Any war dehumanises Humans

Rape is normal in war and used as a weapon to demoralise the enemy.

Killing children in wars is collateral damage.

Killing of old people and women just happens.

My Question:

Do we need more heroes and is Macron correct to warn Putin with Ground Troops?

Is Putin only playing Poker Games? Would he start WW3 with 50kg Nukes?

Is Scholz a Coward?

My thoughts will cover significant historical, literary, and philosophical ground …

I am just outlining here the present confusion in Europe and the world.

Pls be aware, these thoughts are only reflexions, not based on science and any research.

I am open to discussions and improvements.

The Alliance of Hitler and Stalin:

Literature’s Impact on War and Peace:

The Need for Warriors and Heroes:

Conclusion:

  • In public, we have to consider how the lessons from the past can inform our present actions towards peace. We must reflect on how literature has shaped our understanding of conflict and the human stories behind historical events.
  • We must emphasize the importance of proactive peace-building measures and the role of ‘heroes’ in today’s context as individuals or groups who strive for harmony and understanding across global societies.

The goal of discussing war and peace is not to glorify conflict, but instead to understand its causes.

We all must work towards a world where peace is the norm, not the exception. Literature and history provide us with the tools to learn from the past and envision a future that values human life and dignity above all else.

Literature has long been a medium for exploring the themes of war and peace, often delving into the human experience and the moral complexities of conflict. Here are some notable works that address these profound themes:

These works, among others, provide valuable insights into the nature of war and the quest for peace, reflecting on the impact of conflict on individuals and societies. They remain relevant as they continue to offer perspectives on the universal human experiences of war and the enduring hope for peace.

The question of whether we need more heroes willing to go to war is a deeply philosophical one that touches on values, ethics, and societal needs. Historically, heroes have been celebrated for their bravery and sacrifices, often made in the context of war. However, the concept of heroism has evolved, and today’s heroes can also be those who prevent conflict, promote peace, and save lives without resorting to violence1.

The consequences of war are profound and long-lasting, affecting not only soldiers but also societies as a whole. War can result in psychological trauma, disrupt education, damage the environment, and lead to a decline in public health provision and social order2. Therefore, the focus is increasingly on preventing war and resolving conflicts through diplomatic and peaceful means.

In essence, while the valor of those who are willing to risk their lives in defense of their country may be respected in some countries, science and most people rather argue:

The true heroes are those who work tirelessly to ensure that such sacrifices are not necessary in the first place. The emphasis is on creating a world where dialogue, understanding, and cooperation prevail over conflict and war.

What is Conflict Resolution?

What I liked about Donald TRUMP is his Out Of The Box Thinking.

Instead of preparing for War like in the Bond Film with North Korea, he thought why not meet this guy in person.

What is Conflict Resolution?

Here are real-life examples of successful conflict resolution, highlighting the importance of various strategies and skills:

  1. Active Listening:
    • A supervisor convenes a meeting between two employees who have engaged in a public dispute. By actively listening to both sides, the supervisor helps them find common ground and resolve their differences¹.
  2. Negotiation:
    • Two neighboring countries have a longstanding border dispute. Through diplomatic negotiations, they agree on a compromise that satisfies both parties, preventing escalation into armed conflict¹.
  3. Mediation:
    • A family faces intense disagreements over an inheritance. A professional mediator facilitates open communication, allowing family members to express their concerns and find a fair distribution solution³.
  4. Problem Solving:
    • Within a team, there’s tension due to conflicting work styles. The team leader encourages problem-solving discussions, leading to a shared understanding and improved collaboration¹.
  5. Strength-Based Approach:
    • In a workplace, two colleagues clash due to differing approaches. Their manager focuses on their strengths, emphasizing how their complementary skills can enhance productivity. The conflict dissipates as they appreciate each other’s contributions¹.
  6. Interest-Based Relational Approach:
    • A community faces disputes over land use. Instead of battling in court, stakeholders engage in dialogue, considering each other’s needs. They find a compromise that preserves relationships while addressing the land issue¹.
  7. Team Building:
    • A project team experiences internal conflicts. Regular team-building activities foster trust, empathy, and understanding among members. As their bonds strengthen, conflicts decrease, leading to better project outcomes¹.
  8. Facilitation:
    • During contract negotiations between labor unions and management, a neutral facilitator ensures all voices are heard. By guiding respectful discussions, they help both sides reach a consensus that benefits all employees¹.

Remember, successful conflict resolution involves empathy, communication, and a willingness to find common ground. These examples demonstrate that peaceful solutions are achievable even in challenging situations. 🌟✌️.

So imagine: Instead of spending Billions of US $ on New Weapons including War Machines and Robots, or Cruise Missiles like Taurus …

Boris Johnson, Biden and Trump and Ursula (Flinten – Uschi) EU Commission and the North Korean Leader plus Putin and Scholz and Macron meet on Fraser Island in QLD and have one week on this Largest Sand Island of our Planet EARTH only Glamping, without any Security and Army: Just to enjoy Mother Nature and not called back to their so called Duties before they have agreed on a Peace Deal for the Ukraine and solved the Gaza Problem with Israel for the next 100 years.

“Noch schnell die Welt retten” ist ein bekannter Song des deutschen Sängers Tim Bendzko. Der Song wurde 2011 veröffentlicht und wurde zu einem Hit in Deutschland. Die Textzeile “noch schnell die Welt retten” ist ein eingängiger Refrain, der die Idee vermittelt, dass wir manchmal das Bedürfnis haben, die Welt zu verbessern oder zu retten, auch wenn es nur für einen Moment ist.

Hier ist ein kleiner Ausschnitt aus dem Lied:

“Ich will noch nicht gehen, wir sind noch hier
Wir sind noch nicht fertig, noch nicht am Ende
Ich will noch nicht gehen, wir sind noch hier
Wir sind noch nicht fertig, noch nicht am Ende
Noch nicht am Ende, noch nicht am Ende
Noch nicht am Ende, noch nicht am Ende
Noch nicht am Ende, noch nicht am Ende
Noch nicht am Ende, noch nicht am Ende”

Es ist ein eingängiger und motivierender Song, der uns daran erinnert, dass wir alle einen Beitrag leisten können, um die Welt ein kleines Stück besser zu machen. 🌍✨

Das Taurus Leak im Netz: Eine Warnung der Russen, wie schnell wir in den dritten Atomkrieg schliddern können, den niemand will! Lafontaine und BSW sagen dazu noch: Die USA sind weit genug weg! Auch Biden und Obama und Trump sind weit genug weg!
Scholz wird sicher stündlich informiert wie Macron auch! Bodentruppen und Taurus – also Eskalation statt sofortige Verhandlungen über einen Waffenstillstand – sind meines Erachtens der sichere Weg in den Dritten Weltkrieg:
NATO ist längst Kriegspartei, so denkt mit Sicherheit Putin! Oder seine Sicherheitsberater.

Bitte bedenken bei allen Gedanken und Artikeln ab JETZT!

The Gulag Archipelago is a history and memoir of life in the Soviet Union’s prison camp system by Russian novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. It was first published in Paris in three volumes in 1973–75. It devastated readers outside the Soviet Union with its descriptions of the brutality of the Soviet regime².

Solzhenitsyn was a prisoner himself, having been arrested in 1945 for criticizing Stalin in a private letter. He spent eight years in various camps, mostly in the harsh Siberian region known as the Taiga. There he witnessed and experienced the horrors of the Gulag, where millions of people perished from starvation, disease, torture, and execution.

How did Solzhenitsyn survive such a nightmare? One of the answers is hope. Solzhenitsyn wrote that “hope dies last” in the Gulag, meaning that as long as one had a glimmer of hope for freedom, justice, or redemption, one could endure the suffering and resist the dehumanization of the system. Solzhenitsyn never gave up hope, even when he faced death or despair. He clung to his faith, his conscience, and his love for his country and his family. He also found hope in his writing, which he considered his moral duty and his way of bearing witness to the truth.

Another answer is the laws of the Taiga. Solzhenitsyn learned to adapt to the harsh natural environment of the Siberian wilderness, where he worked as a logger, a miner, and a bricklayer. He observed that the Taiga had its own laws, which were different from the laws of the Gulag or the Soviet state. The laws of the Taiga were based on survival, mutual aid, and respect for nature. Solzhenitsyn wrote that “the Taiga is not evil. It is stern, but it is also just”¹. He found solace and strength in the beauty and order of the Taiga, which contrasted with the ugliness and chaos of the Gulag.

Solzhenitsyn was not the only one who survived the Gulag by relying on hope and the laws of the Taiga. He collected and recorded the stories of many other prisoners, who showed courage, dignity, and humanity in the face of evil. He also acknowledged the role of luck and providence in his survival, as well as the help of some kind and honest people, both inside and outside the camp system.

The Gulag Archipelago is a powerful testament to the resilience and spirit of the human soul. It is also a warning and a lesson for future generations, to prevent the recurrence of such atrocities and to defend the values of freedom, truth, and justice. As Solzhenitsyn wrote, “the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being”³. It is up to us to choose which side we are on.

Nawalnyjs Beisetzung

Die Grenzen von Putins Gewaltherrschaft

Dass allen Risiken zum Trotz in Moskau Tausende von Alexej Nawalnyj Abschied genommen haben, straft die Behauptung des Machthabers Lügen, die Russen stünden geschlossen hinter ihm.

Meine Gedanken zur allgemeinen Diskussion über Lieferung von Taurus Marschflugkörpern in die Ukraine.
Die größten Waffenhersteller in Europa sind laut dem Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) die folgenden zehn Unternehmen, die im Jahr 2021 einen Gesamtumsatz von 85,6 Milliarden US-Dollar aus dem Rüstungsgeschäft erzielten https://lnkd.in/g3DeM32R:

• BAE Systems (Großbritannien): 22,9 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Airbus (Frankreich/Deutschland/Spanien): 13,4 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Leonardo (Italien): 10,3 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Thales (Frankreich): 9,9 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Rheinmetall (Deutschland): 4,2 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Safran (Frankreich): 4,1 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Rolls-Royce (Großbritannien): 3,9 Milliarden US-Dollar

• MBDA (Frankreich/Deutschland/Italien): 3,8 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Naval Group (Frankreich): 3,7 Milliarden US-Dollar

• Almaz-Antey (Russland): 3,6 Milliarden US-Dollar

Airbus hatte also mit Waffengeschäften im Jahr 2021 dreimal so viel Umsatz gemacht wie Rheinmetall…
Wenn man die in dieser Tabelle aufgeführten Tochterfirmen, wie MBDA,
den Hersteller der Taurus Marschflugkörper, noch anteilig aufteilt, wird der Abstand noch größer.
Danke Euch für`s drüber Nachdenken.
Werde mich mit neueren Zahlen melden.
Unser dpa Foto zeigt den Besuch von Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz im Airbus-Werk in Manching am 10. Januar 2014. Er sah in schicker Fliegerjacke (Mission accomplished?) modernisierte Eurofighter-Typhoon-Kampfflugzeuge für die Luftwaffe.
Der Gesamtauftrag bis 2030 beträgt 38 Einheiten.
30 einsitzige und acht zweisitzige Jäger.
Das Flugzeug erhält eine aktualisierte Software, ein verbessertes Schutzsystem, konforme Treibstofftanks und eine Radarstation mit einer aktiven Phased-Array-Antenne.
Das Volumen der Vereinbarung belief sich auf 5,4 Milliarden Euro…

FAZ Eckart Lose zitiert: Taurus gleich weitere Eskalation! Ist Deutschland damit Kriegspartei?

Mit der politischen Bewertung durch den Bundeskanzler und die SPD haben diese technischen Details wenig zu tun. Selbst wenn die Ukraine sofort völlig alleine mit Taurus umgehen könnte, würde Scholz die Waffe, die bis zu 500 Kilometer tief nach Russland fliegen kann, derzeit nicht liefern. Dabei geht es nicht um technische Machbarkeit, sondern um die Sorge, dass Deutschland in den Krieg hineingezogen werden könnte.

My Story The Cornered Rat Scurry

Title: The Desperate Gambit


In the heart of a forgotten city, where shadows clung to crumbling walls and memories whispered through the cobblestone streets, there lived a rat named Scurry. Scurry was no ordinary rat; he was a survivor, a creature of cunning and desperation.

The city had once thrived, its people bustling with life, their laughter echoing off the grand facades of marble buildings. But then came the invaders—the iron-clad armies of a distant empire, their banners unfurling like dark storm clouds. They demanded tribute, obedience, and when the city’s leaders hesitated, they threatened war.

The city trembled. Its leaders debated in hushed chambers, their voices echoing the fear that gripped every soul. And in the darkest corner of the city, Scurry listened. He watched as the walls closed in, as the noose tightened around their collective necks.

One moonless night, as the invaders camped outside the city gates, Scurry scurried through the rubble. He had a plan—a desperate gambit born of fear and fury. He would confront the invaders, show them the folly of their aggression. But how? He was just a rat, after all.

Scurry found the invaders’ commander—a stern-faced man with eyes like shards of ice. He stood atop a parapet, surveying the city below. Scurry climbed the stairs, his tiny heart pounding. When he reached the top, he stood before the commander, his whiskers twitching.

“Listen,” Scurry squeaked, “this war will bring only ruin. Your missiles, your drones—they’ll rain fire upon us all. But what then? When the dust settles, what will remain?”

The commander scoffed. “Victory,” he said. “Dominance. Our empire will stand unchallenged.”

“But at what cost?” Scurry persisted. “Your empire, our city—both reduced to ash. And what of the survivors? The ones who crawl from the rubble, their eyes hollow with loss? Will they thank you for their victory?”

The commander’s gaze hardened. “War is inevitable,” he said. “We must strike first, crush any resistance.”

Scurry’s heart raced. “Then hear me,” he said. “I propose a different path. Let us break this cycle of destruction. Let us find common ground, seek peace.”

The commander laughed. “Peace?” he spat. “You’re a rat—a pest. What do you know of peace?”

Scurry’s eyes gleamed. “I know this: when cornered, even a rat fights back. But if we all fight, if we unleash our deadliest weapons, what awaits us? Not victory, but annihilation.”

The commander hesitated. “And what would you have us do, rat?”

“Talk,” Scurry said. “Negotiate. Find a way to coexist. For if we threaten each other into war, we’ll unleash forces beyond our control. The drones, the missiles—they’ll devour us all.”

The commander studied Scurry, his fingers tapping against the hilt of his sword. “You’re mad,” he said. “But perhaps madness is what we need.”

And so, in the dead of night, Scurry and the commander met in secret. They spoke of peace, of compromise. The city watched, its breath held, as the invaders withdrew their armies. The war was averted, but not without sacrifice.

For Scurry knew this truth: when threatened, even a rat could change the course of history. And if mankind didn’t heed the lesson, if they continued down the path of destruction, they’d find themselves cornered—facing not just missiles, but oblivion itself.


Moral: Threats and aggression lead only to escalation and eventual ruin. When the stakes are high, it’s wiser to seek dialogue and understanding, lest we unleash forces that consume us all.
