Okay, so here's a famous question, and I'm curious to know what everyone thinks. What is your thought on war? Not any war in particular, but on war in general? THe idea of men and women risking their life which is irreplacable to protect the freedom and right for others. Do you agree with it or do you think it is somewhat tragic? I don't mean to offend anyone AT ALL. In fact, I'll take this time to thank those who have done service for us. But in my opinion, I just can't see the good in it. So many people have died. I believe the word death has lost it's seriousness. Can't there be something else to solve problems? I greatly value life and hate to see so many people go out with the chance of never coming back. It's very brave of them, but I wish they didn't have to.

War in itself is pretty stupid. You mess up the buildings, the grounds and utilities. Then if you win what are you left with? A mess. Usually it is a dictator and another leader, why don't they just lock them in a room and let them duke it out. Still would rather to prefer people to be able to communicate and work things out in a civil manner rather than spending lots of money, messing things up and killing.

Well this is going to be a very contaversial discussion, I am sure. I hate war. I hate the fact that people always loose their lives. Their will be families who will always feel the pain of loss of a loved one. That being said, I know that we must have war in order to have peace. When someone threatens our safety or our peace, we must go to war to defend it. If there never had been war, all people would not be allowed to vote and their would still be slavery. There are many reasons why we must defend ourselves, our families and our country and war it the only way to do this.
