If the war was to end right at this moment, a weakened Assad regime would remain in power, and Iran and Hezbollah would be the dominant powers in the country for years to come. Russian air support completely turned the tide of the war, and now the Sunni insurgents are on the brink of losing. And once Assad died, it would be inevitable that Iran and Hezbollah would attempt to transform Syria into a full-blown Shiite nation. If I understand you correctly, you’re not saying it’s inevitable that war will come to an end, but rather that people have to believe it’s within their power to end war for that to happen, right? He also interviews the contemporary anthropologist Napoleon Chagnon, who has called members of the Yanomamo tribe he studied, in the Amazon region, “innately violent” and practitioners of “chronic warfare,” but who nonetheless told Horgan he thought that under different conditions, the Yanomamo could just as easily be a pacific society. Since then, I’ve done this poll all over the place, in Europe, across the United States, with all kinds of audiences. But if Saudi Arabia, Turkey and their allies go in, they run the risk of a full-blown war with Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. Horgan feels his book is unique in that he sticks his neck out and calls on his fellow citizens to work to make war a thing of the past. Horgan’s book intersects thematically with some other new books, one by Steven Pinker, another by Joshua Goldstein, that offer empirical evidence that proportionately fewer people are dying in armed conflict than in earlier centuries. And he says, let’s face it, we’re not going to eradicate violent conflict in our lifetime. One example that I cite in the book is Barack Obama − this is just the height of irony to me − in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, he says something like, humans have been fighting since the beginning of our species. So, when I became a science journalist, I wrote about the nuclear arms race, and biological and chemical weapons, and about electronic intelligence. So I was thinking about the justice or injustice of that war and the insanity of the cold war, and the possibility of nuclear annihilation. I said there’s actually some evidence that suggests that war is quite old, and maybe innate in some way, but I insisted that we will surely end war someday. I also got into the anthropology of war, studies of the Yanomamo and other tribal peoples, and attempts to study the causes of war. The first time I realized that was when I gave a talk after the invasion of Iraq at a local church, and they asked me to talk about what anthropology and genetics can tell us about war: and whether war is in our genes. But now relentless Russian airstrikes have made it possible for Syrian, Iranian and Hezbollah ground forces to surround the city, and it is about to fall back into the hands of the Syrian government. The Turkish foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, confirmed the deployment in a statement to the Yeni Ећafak newspaper on Saturday, days before a temporary ceasefire is due to come into force. Reacting to a potential troop deployment, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said Saturday, “ Let no one think they can attack Syria or violate its sovereignty because I assure you any aggressor will return to their country in a wooden coffin .” And I said, OK, how many of you agree with me that there will be a day when there is no war, when there’s world peace? But I only started thinking about writing this book recently, when I realized that the vast majority of people think that war is a permanent part of the human condition. They found difficulty in enduring the dangers, fatigue, and privations of life at the front, and war to them meant nothing but suffering. He seemed to be justifying his hawkish policy position in terms of this bleak view of things, that conflict is just part of human existence. But the more I talked to real pacifists and read classic pacifist literature, the more I realized I’m not. In the aftermath, Saudi Arabia and her allies intended to transform Syria into a full-blown Sunni nation. men winter trench coat best trench coat women trench coat with hood for women toggle coats black trench coat with hood mens single breasted mens trench coat purple trench coat women full trench coat mens double breasted trench coat sale trench coats for men cheap small trench coat trench coat with skirt bottom womens black mac coat womens black raincoat black men trench coat trench jackets women trench coat women black black trench coat ladies mens long leather trench coats trench coat nz trench coat for rain ladies spring trench coats camel trench coat women womens trench rain jacket long trench raincoat cheap trench coat women trench coat store cheap leather trench coat trench coats for men sale mens trench coat wool
