Throughout history, wars never stopped, fought for fame or for women, power was always in favor of the crowd, history changed in the 19th century, both the crowd and the technology and strategy began to prevail In the 21st century, the better emerged that killed more people with less technology weapons.
Innocent people are always remembered!
Wars today are based on some fundamentals and rules by the United Nations. Contrary to the wars made in the past, in today’s wars, it is aimed to prevent the killing of civilians, to leave them powerless rather than to destroy the country or the masses. However, despite this, tragedies continue to occur today. For example, over 1 million people died in civil wars and tribal wars in North Africa in the 1990s. Many soldiers and civilians died in the Iraq War that started in 2003.
In international law, there has been a dispute over the acceptability and legality of the war in which armed resistance movements initiated, from at least 1899 to the present day, since the first major attempt was made through the determination of the law of war at a number of international treaty levels, on the inclusion of war as a resistance movement. Recently, the “Protocol Concerning the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflict”, referred to as Protocol I, which was added in 1977 to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949; Referring to armed conflicts in Articles 1 and 4, it stipulates that war “… against the colonial domination of the people, the foreign occupation force and racist regimes” can be fought. However, all these distinctions are political judgments, beyond the implementation of governments, international law does not make a clear distinction on this issue and does not define the right of organized resistance even against the most serious human rights violations. This situation impedes the right to war against crimes such as genocide and state terror, and weakens the fight against crimes against humanity and war crimes on a large scale.
But why do soldiers rape other rings?
Is the best explanation for this both psychologically and by the events they experienced, the death of their closest friends such as blood brutality, that they won what they thought they were strong, or that they felt it deserved to rape those women? no, none of them.
The price of being human: the “cost” of war on numbers on earth.
The truth of war with numbers
There have been more than 15,500 regional or national wars in the world in 5,600 years. 3 billion 700 million people died.
14 out of every 100 people who died in World War I, II. 70 of every 100 people who died in World War II and 90 out of 100 people who died in the wars of the 1990s were civilians.
More than 23 million people died in 149 wars between 1945 and 1992. Soldiers made up only 3 million of this. It is known that in wars, in contrast to the death of 1 soldier, 1 civilian dies directly, and 14-15 civilians die from reasons such as hunger, thirst, infectious diseases.
The bloodiest war in the world, II. 40-50 million people died in World War II. The war in history, which is the only war in which nuclear weapons were used, is also a war in which mass civilian deaths like the Jewish genocide were experienced.
The First World War resulted in the death of 50 million people and the disability of 90 million people.
2 million children have died in wars in the last 10 years. 6 million children were disabled. 12 million children were left homeless, more than 1 million orphans. 10 million children were psychologically traumatized, and tens of thousands of children were raped and tortured.
20 thousand women were raped in Bosnia during the Balkan War.
It is known that the US ally states are waiting for people who will step on 1 million unexploded landmines in the Iraq-Kuwait border and around the city of Basra during the Gulf War, and 110 million unexploded landmines in 64 countries during the Balkan Wars.
Today, 15 million people, including 500 thousand scientists, work in the arms and weapons development industry in the world.
Armament and war craze increasingly continues in the USA. It is thought that $ 396.1 billion has been allocated for armament. When Russia and China are added to the total armament expenditures of 7 countries that the USA sees as potential enemies, this figure reaches only one third of the armament expenditures of the USA with a total of 117 billion dollars.
Turkey’s military budget in 2014 is $ 19.1 billion. Ranking 14th in the world in terms of military investment, Turkey’s budget for education is 5 billion 494 million TL as of 2015.
In our age, one of the biggest problems in the world is seen as hunger and poverty. According to current data, 795 million people are thought to be starving. The number of military expenditures made in just one day is approximately 2.5 billion dollars and this amount is increasing every second. The amount involved is more than enough to eliminate hunger, the biggest problem today.
Apart from the war, the natural diversity and ecological structure of the geography are also highly affected by the people. Although the number of animals that died in wars or the natural area destroyed in the wars until today is not known, they are experiencing the effects of humanity’s ambition. Humanity also destroyed many historical structures, which it called civilization, during these wars and destroyed many treasures that future generations could learn from. In the recent past, Radical Islamist groups have smashed historical artifacts and announced this to the world public opinion.
Today, we see the Syrian civil war as the hottest war. The demonstrations that started on March 15, 2011 spread throughout the country until April and eventually gave way to civil war. According to the report of the United Nations, the death toll exceeded 220 thousand in January 2015. Most of those who died were civilians. Likewise, during the civil war in the Southeast of Turkey, nearly 500 people died within a month.
In the light of all these data, we can say that it was written with human history. Let’s not forget that history is nothing more than success stories of dominant groups. Whoever has the power of power writes the history, and these dates are generally based on wars or occupations. Regardless, we know that wars have no winners. Political interests are provided or not, it happens to all living life of the geography where the war is waged. Women, the elderly, children, animals and natural life always take the biggest share in these wars.
It is for us, individuals or societies, not to take part in a war anywhere in the world and not to be a tool in these political games. There is only one world on which we live. These worldly blessings allow each of us to live in peace. As a child, the world looks like animals to our eyes. Just as it is. Do not let your inner child be killed by concepts. Children fight sometimes but never fight.
