This article was very helpful in supporting the Roman writer Vegetius’ claim; “If you want peace, prepare for war”. Not everyone is going to be very accepting to giving up war for total peace, especially those who are warrior born, like Henry for example. Some believe that war is the only option in some situations.              WP Company.

“Washington Post” January 20, 2018                       In the news article of “War Is Like A Box Of Chocolates” describes how the famous all American movie relates to war. In the film Forrest Gump, more commonly known as Tom Hanks, is shown shaking hands with president Kennedy. Now, this would never happen because Kennedy had died way before the showing of this movie. Hollywood calls it special effects but  for covert operators in the U.

S. military and intelligence agencies, it is a weapon of the future. Psychological operations, seek to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to pursue national and battlefield objectives. Relating back to Vegetius’ claim; “If you want peace, prepare for war”, in order to win peace there might need to be some unjust actions. Maybe Vegetius was more thinking a war with yourself? If you want peace from the unjust actions you have done during war, prepare for a war with yourself?    The Conversation “How the horror of war gets lost in the media’s short compassion cycle” January 25, 2018    The war in Syria is not one to be ignored and is almost impossible to be ignored by the media. A video that was recently released shows five-year-old Omran Daqneesh sitting in an ambulance after being rescued from the airstrike in Aleppo.

Within minutes of the video being uploaded by the Aleppo Media Centre the images were being shared on social media and gaining the attention of Western newsrooms. As the Financial Times reported, 24 hours after the video was posted, it had had 350,000 views and been shared thousands of times. In Vegetius’ quote “If you want peace, prepare for war”, if you want peace and the truth, prepare for a war with the media. The media always takes tragedy stories and runs with them without knowing the entire truth.     ThoughtCo “What’s the Story Behind the Phrase If You Want Peace, Prepare for War?” January 27, 2018    The Latin saying of “if you want peace, prepare for war” comes from Epitoma Rei Militaris, or the Roman general Vegetius. According to Vegetius, the army seemed to grow weak from a long period of peace and stopped wearing its protective armor.

The quote is found to mean that the time to prepare for war is not when war is about to happen, but rather when it’s peaceful. I do agree with Vegetius, i do believe that once you are a warrior, you never stop being a warrior. You constantly have a mindset of attack and no mercy and you can’t help it.
