I Know That War Is a Necessary Evil

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65 People

    From a Marine Reservist's Wife

    Sorry, But It's True

    War is a necessary evil. War is a last resort when all diplomacy has failed. To be honest diplomacy can not go on forever. At some point you get and agreement or you don't. At some point not only rights and principles but also peoples must be protected from aggression and an...

    And It Breaks My Heart

    Conflict Is Life

    Its scary, but we do it to live on. Its horrible, degrading, costly, and torturous to all involved, but we do it to keep the bad guy down. War is a necessary evil, I really can't say much more about it. The phrase says it all.

    Necessary, Yes. a Good Thing, No

    I have many family and friends/workmates who have served in the British armed forces & 3 cousins and a family friend still in the army. I believe that whilst wars to build empires should remain a thing of the past, wars or conflicts for a country's own defense or...
