No winner to war; no option other than peaceful struggle
Which fate, which ideal can be more important than the life of a 7-year-old child?
I will tell you.
None of it.
The death of children cannot justify any state or any ideal.
Everyone is doomed to lose in an armed conflict.
There will be no winner to this type of war; it has been said 50 times and I will say it for the 51st time.
There are no other options than to take the necessary democratic step and peaceful struggle.
How many lives of people, of children, will be lost in order to understand that?
