Is there really any reason to fight?

I have to read the book "The Once and Future King" by T. H. White over the summer for my highschool English class and White mentiones a topic I never really thought thorougly about. Is there any actual reason to fight? He gives one good reason that I can agree with but other than that every other reason we fight about now a days could be solved without the need for warfare. The reason White gave is because the other man started it. (Self Defense). Do you agree with this or do you think there are reasons to fight?

I read a book by Henry Kissinger called "Diplomacy." In it he say that war is the failure of diplomacy. I'm not sure if its his quote or someone else's but it essentially comes to the same question as yours. I think that there are some wars that are needed like WWII or the war in Kosovo where you have a group committing genocide. Its unfortunate that there are plenty of wars that could have been avoided or started for BS, but I also think that Its an unfortunate part of the human race. All we can do is urge our leader into finding peaceful solutions to problems and conduct our own lives to finding solutions to avoid fights.
