War and Anti-War War and Anti-War

"Desert Storm" graphically foreshadowed the war of the future - "smart" bombs, high-tech satellite reconnaissance, modern warriors armed with knowledge-age weapons.

And it offers a breathtaking paradigm for peace through technology, communication, and the most powerful force on earth - human innovation.
