Monkey Man suggested 'War?', then proceeded to write a fun piece about a different kind of explosion. But the word to me has a profound meaning, for I was born during one, and grew up with its aftermath in evidence all around the stricken city of Portsmouth. Which perhaps explains my own 160 this week.
I think wars create more problems than they solve. The warring factions need to communicate, understand their opponents viewpoint, or hostility will continue.
