    War furthers mutual distrust and creates "one way-my way"-brains. An old professor I knew once said that "war is not only a humanitarian catastrophe, but also an economical one" and I would like to add that it's also a cultural catastrophy, marking the brains for generations to come. Before this background, Annan's national unity plan seems terribly weak, illusionary maybe because I don't think anyone can honestly expect that those who fight each others at present will found a contructive government together tomorrow. But despite all myths of heroism and tellings about of evil axes, which are forged by governments and media, abroad and inside, what a soldier or warrior does is the least thing which could serve as exemplary for any society. They hold in their hands physically deadly weapons, which are at the same time the strongest and also the worst of all arguments, the ultimate signs of human inability to live together, to democratically arrange a common life. Forget about American and Russian ambitions, look for solutions beyond them. First thing to achieve, is a truce.
