Pam Funke's "Operation Dark Angel" by Erik Nelson

"War is Hell." "Violence never solves anything." "There are no winners in war, only losers." These popular sayings about war are true (at least from my point of view) but according to some of the characters in Pam Funke's book "Operation Dark Angel", they would disagree and even go as far as to saying that war helps downsize terrorism or that more war equals world peace. Unfortunately, many of the people in Government agree with those characters. Ok before I get too political here, let me get back to the real subject here; Pam Funke's real yet entertaining book. Nicolaitanes Balac who is gaining a huge following in the field of politics has brought General Alexander Ludlow to his side in hopes that they together will bring world peace. This becomes the birth of their operation called; "Operation Dark Angel" which is basically the myth of more war equals world peace. After the operation becomes official, not only do the soldiers suffer the consequences but many countries do as well. As war more occurs and the suffrage spreads throughout the world, Balac and Ludlow realize that their vision doesn't balance with realism or are they too ignorant to accept failure? For those who have been paying attention over the past fifteen years to America's national security, I highly recommend this book for your entertainment because although many of the themes are real, it's also an entertaining book and we all need some entertainment to help clear our minds. For the people who haven't been paying attention to the fact that our military has been acting like the world's policemen, I highly recommend this book not just for your entertainment but so that you can also be introduced to many key factors about what more war actually equates to. As I said before, not only does Pam Funke write about many of the factors and myths about war, she also provides us with a great entertaining story in the center of all the factual chaos. There are also many religious overtones in the book. This raises another question about religion; does religion do more harm than good in the world? Well, to answer this question, you need to remember something; one of the many causes of war is religion. Where one religion doesn't like another one.
