    War Is Sometimes a Necessary Evil, Always a Great Tragedy

    I do think war is sometimes a necessary evil. But oftentimes, it isn't. So we humans have to be very careful before supporting wars and going to war, cause sometimes it's just evil, or at best an ignorant and tragic course of action. If everyone took this approach to war, we...

    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.

    And It Breaks My Heart

    As long as there are at least three people in the world, there will be war. I don't like it, I don't want it that way, but conflict is an inevitable part of human nature, almost as much as love. Many wars are unnecessary, and most are fought over poor communication. That's...

    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...

    From a Marine Reservist's Wife

    The very fact alone that the group has the phrase necessary evil, it says something. Doesn't it? Ideally we would like to consider that peacemaking would be an easy answer. Not everyone is intelligent enough to do something other than resort to violence. The greatest of...

    I Used to Think It Wasn't

    I have seen how it has effected me and my family. Both my Uncle and cousin were in the world trade center Sept. 11th. That was my uncles 2nd time of making it out alive. Maybe we shouldn't have started the war but we have and now if we pull out we are asking to be attacked. Look...

    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...
