WAR IS NOTHING BUT A FOLLY AND GREATEST OBSTACLE IN THE WAY OF PROGRESS

I have never heard from past to present that anyone was benefitted by it except politicians. It is the policy of politicians to start war to divert the attention of the public from the most important issues related to the public. No people of any country want war because no people are benefitted by it. The inflation goes to sky high after war. Innocent people are also killed. DURING WAR THE SOLDIERS KILL THE SOLDIERS OF ANOTHER COUNTRY WITHOUT ANY ENMITY. WE SHOULD NOT ANTAGONISE A PERSON TO THE EXTENT THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TALK TO HIM WHEN WE ARE FRIENDS AGAIN. WHEN WAR BEGINS, DEATH OPENS ITS JAWS.IT IS THE MODERN ERA WE CAN COME TO A COMPROMISE IF WE HAVE TABLE TALKS. WE ALL SHOULD THINK OF DEVELOPMENT NOT THE WAR.WE VERY WELL KNOW THAT THE END OF WAR IS ALWAYS COMPROMISE THEN WHY SHOULD WE ADOPT THIS DANGEROUS WAY WHICH OBSTRUCTS THE WAY OF DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESS. THE AIM OF THE HUMANITY IS TO SPREAD PEACE NOT WAR.

It's not true that just politicians benefit from war. Large corporations that profit from various defense industries also profit. For example, weapons manufacturers, companies that supply war rations, medical supplies, uniforms, etc. If we took the profit motive out of the equation, and money out of politics, I bet politicians wouldn't be pushing for war so much.

Yes, I agree.Thank you very much for a prudent comment. A famous writer says," War is nothing more than the continuation of politics by other means." The first casualty when war begins, is truth. WE SHOULD START A WAR AGAINST THE 5 THINGS, WITH THE MALADIES OF BODY, THE IGNORANCE, WITH THE PASSIONS OF THE BODY, WITH THE SEDITION OF THE CITY AND DISCORDS OF FAMILIES AND POVERTY.
