Does war slove problems?

From the birth of mankind we have been at war in one way or another. I heard people say that nobody wins a war! Is this true, do both sides lose? I agree that it is painful for both sides, both the loser and victor alike will carry scares for the rest of their lifes. After a war, we all ask to ourselves the same question 'has it been worthwhile'. What do you think of war? Does it slove problem?

There are times where there is unfortunately no choice. War does seem to be the only option. Both sides seem too stubborn to find a common ground. However, does it really solve anything? To a certain extent yes but to another extent no. There are just more bad feelings from the losing side and no one's opinions are changed. There is a great deal of resentment that is born from the aftermath of war.

War can never solve a problem. It can only create problem fro both side involved in a war.Every problem can be solved by talking over it. War can never solve a problem without any looses.. The victor never sees the loose that he had in the war. They only care for destroying the others. But war is necessary when you have no other options left.

If something is not solve with talk then we can choose this options. But with war the both the persons or country suffer huge loss and it is very painful. But sometimes it become necessary to go with that.

Never a war solve problems between 2 countries; all is just politic. Never a ordinary human start a war(maybe just because of a woman)just kidding; but all is start from high level , is not a people decision, is a Goverment decision. Wars don t help in nothing, maybe just in natural number of population, all are just wrong idea about what can make somebody to say that is more smarter.

I dont think it solves any issues. But there can be parties that never forgive each other for centuries thereafter. Generally the unforgiving one is the loser. It earns the arms seller ample monies though. :) War to me is failure of negotiation. One of the parties reaching the negotiation table is desperate for war. So we need to keep on trying to change parties at the negotiation table till some amicable solution is found, instead of resorting to wars and mayhem.

I do not think war solves any thing. I do not think there is a winner. War is a way just to try to force One Opinion on some one else. Who are we to tell them what to do. This is only my Opinion. Happy posting.
