What Is War?
Wars are essentially caused by at least two groups with conflicting ideas. such as: Religious views, political ideas, racial differences, to gain resources, and many other things. Both sides think that they are right and the other is wrong, so they decide to try and force the other side to do the "right" thing. It seems that wars have existed since nearly the beginning of mankind. For some reason we just can't seem to get along! I believe that lots of wars could have been prevented if both sides actually got together and talked about their problems and found a better solution than killing each other. Fear is a key factor in war, you scare the people into joining your cause, get them riled up against your opponent by telling them all the horrible things they are doing. I believe it is a horrible thing, however sometimes it is certainly necessary and I don't blame anyone that is fighting back to protect themselves. Unfortunately, I believe there will continue to be wars as long as the human race exists.
