Here, I refrain from other "pessimist" interpretations of mines.
Incidentally, helically wound snake, motif is accepted to represent medicine! As a physician that is a symbol we are proud to identify with. It connects us throughout history with the greatest healers!

So aren't wars in need for a response like any other malady. In fact if, we think of the coiled snake, isn't war an evil that sneaks up on us and we have to deal with it's poison fangs and crushing coils that take the breath out of us and make us fight for our lives!

So, Antonio, referencing the damage is not being "pessimistic" just wanting to address that evil!
