    Is war the answer?

    Is war the answer? I mean, strategy is awesome and everything, but how does soldiers killing each other solve the worlds problems. Doesn't it just make more. Take the Punic Wars. Carthage attacked Rome, and after the third one, Carthagians were enslaved, murdered, and raped. Rome had lost many troops at Zama, and other battles. It just weakened both countries. In Afghanistan, warfare has escalated. Americans are losing troops. Don't predator drones make more sense?

    And shot again. And again. And if you die you will still be shot again.

    It depends on what you're trying to accomplish with the answer.

    Anyone who says that war is awesome needs to die. Kids play Modern Warfare 2 and think that war is super 1337.
    No, war is not the answer. Politicians don't know how to act civilized.

    War aint the answer, but if violence is the only way to get the job done then fuck it.

    So if another country invades you, killing your civilians, you think civilized politicians are going to stop the war and save everyone?

    Militaries exist for a reason, there are foreign threats circling the world and the only hope you have against getting involved is to form a powerful alliance with neighboring countries. Is war the answer? Is terrorism the answer? No, but war is the only way we know how to answer back..

    I'd prefer to have countries battle it out by building the best robot they can build and then have them fight to the death, but that's extremely unrealistic.

    War can be avoided, our military was made especially for the defense of our country not for hypocritical invasions.

    War is never the answer, but regardless of that we do still have these conflicts which are inevitable. I would try to minimize using military power as a stand point for my authority but that's just an opinion

    On another note, is an invasion ethical if you cannot compromise for the safety of your country?

    Perhaps, but what defines the fine line between enemy and a ally?

    There has to be a reason why the other country invades your country. Just talk with the president of the other country and make peace.
    Unless it's sort of like WW2, then yeah, war is fine.
