*After the end of the 2000 year war, Earth had all this armament laying around collecting rust, anyway someone in Alliance headquarters decided to take a couple of Mark XII battle platforms and set them up as monuments.
After some debate they chose the lower end of Manhattan, they just leveled a whole city block along the East River, no idea where they put the beings who lived there. Just another Manhattan Project.
So there they sat for 10 years, accumulating rust, at least in space you did’nt have to look at it, then along comes this group wanting to paint everything with bright colors.
And paint it they did, and boy’ is it bright!.But still weapons of destruction, no amount of paint can cover that.
My thinking on this is not popular, but luckily somebeings are still free thinkers, why do beings feel they have to glorify WAR, some say its to teach the young not to be warlike, my feeling is as long as we have “Monuments to War”, we’ll always have wars.
And of course its in the genes,humans are a warlike race, accept it and move on!*
