If you are going to start a war you should be in it to win it.

Well if the Golden Rule means anything, if you're going to start a war you should get your ass kicked.   If you can't figure out any other way but war to solve your "problems" you're not thinking as much as you're barbarianing.

Oh sure we should have just let Hitler march across Europe and keep killing Jews.  Damn us all for stopping him.

In case you didn't recognize it that was a sarcastic remark.

Exactly, if you're going to start a war, you should get your ass kicked.   But Hitler "kept on trying to win."  He "should be in it to win it".  He "didn't want to throw his hands in the air."

And the Corollary to the Golden Rules states:  “do unto others before they do unto you.”  Everyone gets their ar$e kicked for one reason or another.  Either because they threaten someone by just existing (being too close) or because they have resources the other doesn’t have.  It’s better to go kick some before you are unable to.  If you don’t, for sure they will.  War has solved more problems throughout history.  That’s why you are the person you are today.

Hitler was winning until we started the war to stop him.  Hitler was finishing something that actually started in 1871.  You need to have awareness and perspective of history to understand what starting a war really means.

What dizzy nonsense is this?   You need to know the first thing about WW2 to know that we didn't start it.

You know nothing about why I'm anything, nobody in the Middle East has resources we don't have, and if you feel threatened by the mere existence of other people that sounds like a paranoid mental illness.   I'm all for you going wherever you want and killing whoever you want and paying your own price for it.   Whoever "has to go", you can go get rid of them yourself otherwise it must not be important enough to bother with and you obviously have other priorities in life as the person you are today.   We don't even know who we're going to be going to war with next.  It's whatever they come up with and that's good enough for some people who aren't going to do the fighting or dying themselves. 

You're talking in generalities about solving problems by killing people.  I've never met anyone as shamelessly pro war as you are.  "The Corollary to the Golden Rule."   If you can't even get the Golden Rule right, you're incapable of living in harmony with other people.
