                I've seen a huge battle before. Its nearby our sink. Its a big battle between fire ants and the black ants. As I watched, they both get very huge casualties. I can't see who won but I think the fire ants won. Today, all I see is them in a peacful truce.

                                              further explanation: humans have decided that war is not a thing that they want to do a lot anymore, so they changed the war to into subtle form.
