Yes we sit back. By jumping in you stir things up. Ask yourself how did the nukes come to be invented in the first place? Was it not through war and sabre rattling. Would they have been invented if we were all talking peace? When you start a war or talk about war you stir up the most primitive of human emotions that include revenge. "You kill my family with conventional weapons and I would not rest until I kill all your family in the most horrible way I can imagine." That is the emotions that come up with war and it opens up a market for weapons of mass destruction. So if you do not want to awaken the beast you stay away from war and pursue peace.
