My answer to Why a lot of governments want peace and yet they don't make an agreement to disarm altogether?
Answer by Desmond Last:
They are unable to disarm by agreement because of several reasons.
1.They do not trust each other. Each has vested self-interests that require them to use force to satisfy those interests. They may be economic, they may be strategic for defence and supply of energy and food/water. They may be political ie protecting a particular way of life.
The United Nations who should bring Peace are weak and do the bidding of Government and the Security Council . They do not represent the wishes of the people.
2. They do not know where all the weapons are. Nuclear and non-nuclear.
3. They do not know how to.
4. They want to dominate the world or part of it.
5. We the people have let our Governments take too much power and not enough responsibility.
6. We the people have no representation at the International Level.
7. The Security Council of the U.N does not represent the World.
8. Those who vote for mandates of the U.N that allow for military action never refer their decision to the people they represent.
If we want Peace, and apart from
a few, most do. Them the whole world has to be involved in both the decision-making and the Process. Sitting in remote halls in Vienna so John Kerry can master-mind another disaster in the making will not bring long-term Peace to Syria nor the Middle East.
We are a long way from disarmament and when we finally achieve World Peace Peace we will still need a Global Defence Force to maintain it.
