War isn't just
Debate Rounds (3)
Those on the aggressing side chose to rise in the name of a leader that they all trusted to lead them to victory. It was their choice to charge the lands of 'innocent' people, who likely have as much blood on their hands as they do.
On the other hand, the people being attacked have the right to defend their homes and their land - should they be labels as sinners and killers for trying to defend what they hold dear to their hearts?
Also, the education systems in the majority of countries - namely the ones that partake in wars, actually - are spectacular and haven't exactly suffered from the effects of war. The United Kingdom, America, Canada, Germany: a handful of the main aggressors in all three of the wars that you have just mentioned. All of these nations are currently leading in world education and research.
A lot of war is deemed senseless and, as you say, purely destructive, but if it weren't for war, places like Poland, Greece, Italy, The Republic of Ireland, England itself, would all still be trapped and subjected to a totalitarian rule and no one would have freedom, save those who stole the world powers.
War does have benefits. As a result of the London bombings, yes, much of London was destroyed, but it gave the city a chance to rebuild and renew. Masses of council houses with no indoor toilets and very poor general hygiene standards were destroyed. This gave the people living in these appalling standards a chance to build a new home and claim better living quarters for themselves and their families.
Besides, since when was it our duty to look after the world? Yes, there are people out there that are less fortunate than us, but why are we all more focused on people in places like Africa, when we can't even help the homeless in our own country? Did you know that a starving man in Kenya is more likely to recieve sympathy than a starving man in the streets of your own city? A child in Milawii who hasn't been allowed an education is more likely to have funding given to them than the same child in America or even Britain.
You are repeatedly appealing to emotion. Thousands of people die every day from illness, starvation, depression and mistreatment, but you still focus on war, as if it were the only world evil and the cause of every malady about the globe?
