1. Ending war should start with consensus building. People must be able to understand the opposing parties.

2. Again, there is need for adequate information at the right time. This would be achieved through effective communication between parties to a conflict.
3. Proper use of language is key to ending wars. For instance, if Gaddafi did not tell Libyans that there would be 'no mercy,' foreign intervention would have been avoided.

Peace work should start on the personal level. Communities and countries follow.  I believe this happens when human beings start working on themselves first and foremost.  My idea is not theoretical; it is rather widely proven and centuries old.  By doing meditation, concentration and breath work, love and kindness practice, inner peace becomes contagious.

Fun? Many people are suffering and are victims or survivors of war. Ideas to end war must be grounded on the realities of war, not mere abstract feel good ahistorical, non-contextual notions. Many problems have deep-rooted historical precursors of social, economic, political and cultural inequalities and injustice. Best wishes for our common efforts to end war.

each country should become energy dependent as well as sustainable in all forms of life: energy, food, water, etc... this will greatly decrease if not eradicate all war over such life essentials especially for the US in terms of the Middle East and oil as well as African countries in terms of basic living essentials

A fellowship of recovery from our culturally-conditioned dependency on violent thoughts, words, and deeds using Mark Umbreit’s Twelve Steps of Personal Peacemaking in combination with self-disclosure in a safe group environment, a small weekly discussion group of friends for keeping each other encouraged and accountable for working each step using a workbook-style, detailed guide to each step,The 12 Steps — A Way Out.” (Friends in Recovery, RPI Publishing, 1995).

Sharing a meal, or better yet, cooking a meal for someone is a good way to begin resolving conflict and healing wounds. George Mitchell once brought all the negotiators in the Northern Ireland peace talks together for a dinner where the rules were that you had to sit next to someone from the other side and you could not talk about the negotiations. The result was a better understanding of "the enemy" as a human being, a father, an athlete, a musician, just like you. Let's get communities in conflict to cook for each other, to share community meals, building bonds of common humanity.

Figure out how you can tell a friend something you would normally hide from them. If you can't allow yourself to be different when you are with your friends, then how can we expect to have open discussions and cooperation with others who are obviously different in less friendly circumstances?
