Who gains? No one.

Who gains in a war?  Only the victor?

I keep thinking of WWII. The United States and European countries won it.

The Nazis were defeated. They left their gains in destruction.

The Syrian people fought for their right to democracy, but were bombed into submission.

What was left for the Syrian’s Bashar Assad to govern. Cities in chaos and destruction.

It happens over and over again. A war brings a victor, but all that is left is chaos and destruction.

I have difficulty understanding the need some leaders feel that chaos will bring them what they want.

After WWII, the United States instituted the Marshall plan to rebuild Europe.

Who will rebuild the Ukraine? The USA? Perhaps. Would Russia? I doubt it.
