The United States of America"s involvement in war has widely been debated; however, I firmly believe the United States should not go to war unless they are attacked first. The Vietnam War was a situation when the United States was not attacked but still felt the need to go fight to stop the spread of Communism. Over 50 thousand American deaths occurred, and the war itself cost 738 billion dollars. The vietnamese did not attack the United States first, the United States only went over to vietnam to stop the spread of the idea of communism. Secondly, Pearl Harbor is a situation when the United States was attacked,and in that case, we fought. Over two thousand military lives, along with 68 civilian lives, were lost at Pearl Harbor. After that, the United States declared war against Japan and Germany. Entering the war helped resolve economic issues, therefore ending the Great Depression. Last, 9/11 is another example when the United States was attacked on American soil and in return the United States went to war in Afghanistan to fight against Al Qaeda. This was beneficial to the United States because we fought against terrorism on their own territory instead of on United States soil. Based on this information, the United States should not go to war unless they are attacked because do so will protect American lives and save United States financials resources to solve domestic issues.
