The Candy Bombers

There are many ways to resolve conflict. Generally there are ways to reach a peaceful solution. The following is an interview with the author of "The Candy Bombers" which is a book about a situation in which conflict could have led to world war 3 so a few of the people involved were determined to find a peaceful solution. When people are determined to attain peace they come up with innovative and effective solutions. Notice how the focus of the problem solvers(in the following video) is on making friends through gifts (such as humanitarian aid) rather than subduing an opponent through threats.
