This is war my dear!
Invasion for pure greed and gratification.
What else can this be?
Civilians, soldiers, casualties dying.
In their blood lying.
This is war my dear!
Lives are meaningless,
The soul is downcast and sighing.
This is the battlefield, blood, brutality.
Politicians lacking  rationality.
Aggression, destruction, death and ravished.
Soldiers and innocent lying on the streets.
Surely logic has perished.
This is war my dear!
The cold carnage continues …
Unleashed on humanity.
Mourning for innocent lives.
Who will stop the insanity?
Can people not see such torment and tragedy?
This is war my dear!
There is only depravity and brutality…

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with!The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable!We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.
