Introduction to "The Needless of War"
War is not at all pleasant. Words associated with war are usually always negative, and only occasionally, in the most rarest of circumstances, are they pleasant. Yet wars are not fought blindly, they are fought whole-heartedly with a purpose and reason. Perhaps the war is fought to better the world. Maybe the war is fought to eliminate enemies. Regardless, damage will be done and people will have been affected. Without a doubt, whoever loses will suffer. War is no laughing matter. Fighting should be a last resort, and only for the most extreme situations. Yet many a time the decision of whether or not a nation should partake in war is worn on a sleeve. No matter how much progress is achieved through war, there is just as much and more regression. Thus, war is absolutely needless if progress is desired. Although people go to war for the sake of some wonderful ideal, in the end it just wastes people's lives.
