"fighting for peace"?

Can we fight for peace? Or is this part of the problem...?

from Thomas Merton:

Perhaps peace is not, after all, something you work for, or fight for. It is indeed fighting for peace that starts all the wars. Peace is something you have or do not have. If you are yourself at peace, then there is at least some peace in the world. Then share your peace with everyone, and everyone will be at peace.
