It's not pentameter... It would still be iambic. thelessyoubleedintimes[sma ll]of[small]war That would be iambic tetrameter.

It sounds better in common meter, though. Parallelism would kind of ruin that.

The sentence doesn't need to be parallel because it falls well within the native English speakers grammar. Prescriptive grammar is largely hogwash.

It's in common metre, aka 8/6, or 4/3 if you want to count stresses instead of syllables.   
   
The more you bleed in times of peace,   
the less you bleed in war.   
   
Notice how those line up. Also, consider that you could write only the bolded words and it'd still make sense.   
   
More bleed times peace,   
less bleed war.   
   
Try saying the standard 8/6 line in your head, or out loud. It'd sound stupid as an 8/8 line, wouldn't it? Or at least the timing would be uncomfortable.   
   
The more you bleed in times of war,

Eugh. It just feels too long, you know?

No, it, really doesn't have to. Times of peace and war are both nouns of the same kind, so the sentence is already parallel. What you're arguing for is for better flow, and that falls under improving subjective writing, not improving grammar.
If you really wanted to sound like a smarty-shorts, you should've just pointed out that the second the is capitalized incorrectly.

Eh, whatever you want to call it. I wasn't... all the way there last night.
You could argue that, but I don't think it matters that it is capitalized because it is on a new line. (I think it leans more towards poetry than formal writing.)

Moral: To ensure times of peace, create nation-wide lifting phenomenon.

Who the hell's gonna wage war against a population that can each bench press 450?

Even tho I more or less feel like fat people will use this picture like an excuse, it brings up an important subject. When a lot of people think "strength", they think bodybuilders, and big muscles. And while bodybuilders truly are strong, they are rather semi-strong compared to "fat" strongmen.

True, but also theres a big difference between being overweight, fat, or bulky. May not look too different but it is a big difference for sure. A, as you said, "fat" strong man is bulky due to what he eats to become as big and has tough as he his. but all in all, i dont think anyone should use this as an excuses you work for what you have not sit around and eat. Thats my thought, at least

kinda true. but the pic also left out skeletal types. most body builders are meso morphs. broad appearing shoulders and trim waste. perfect hollywood appeal. guy fighting bears in mountains, endomorph.
unfortunately in america, it hardly matters as everyone is fat and all 3 look the same.
Im endomorph, and angry at clothing designers for tailoring such tiny shoulders in shirts lol i either buy a size big or tear the sleeves off going about my buisness. (im not ripped or fat or skinny)

and i just saw an episode with Bear Grylls... and in it he said that the less water in the blood the less you bleed cause it is too thick... so... it kind of makes sense... sweat more means less water in your body and the less water the less you bleed...
