The path of aggression, illegal invasion and occupation has invariably been counterproductive and fait accompli for aggressors time and time again. History is testament to the fact.
The former Soviet invasions and unlawful annexations of independent republics and sovereign nations has been economically devastating and militarily deadly with innocent lives targeted to prove individual authority via military might. These actions bear dire consequences with much to lose and nothing to gain in the war game.
Importantly, the military option exercising missile launching and air raids over peaceful engagement and diplomacy is a direct confirmation of intellect failure to resolve disputes amicably and reasonably avoiding blood shed all around.
The drastic measures such as military attacks are violations of innocent lives and destruction of infrastructure and economy. The indulgence is analogous to setting own house on fire. Such disposition is characteristic of loss of self-control that are again established as self-detrimental to authority and irrational cause.
When domestic situation is fragile and messy, the preferred route for governments is foreign assault to deflect public attention and frustration from local issues.
The global pandemic is classic example in this context.
The authorization of war is submission to profiteers strategy even though such profits melt in the wake of costly wars draining economies and depleting resources yielding nothing more than chaos and carnage. No doctrine involving catastrophic involvement has succeeded neither will it prevail now or in the future.
The leadership weakness comes to light in such attacks with no concern for ramifications that follows adversarial actions.
The military intervention is futile and exacerbate suffering for ordinary civilians within and around.
It is strange to desire tragedies rather than peaceful resolutions to end conflict.
