I have a really historic argument
There was a historic event where U.S had the expedition to Korea after Korea attacked American ship called "General Sherman". It is true that I am a citizen of Korea, but I do not have a biased point of this event. American history skipped the part where they illegally came into the harbor. The shipped imprisoned the government officials who were trying to negotiate. Still, they never got permission to stay in the harbor. Most of the documents in the U.S only show the Korean's murder on the crews.
They told the government to pay the U.S for firing warning shots at them after they stayed in the harbor for a really long time( it was armed too).
Later many armed conflicts happen and battles have occurred.
I do not deny that Korea is a secluded country and never opens its harbor but it does not give U.S the permission to attack us. Many Korean soldiers killed themselves instead of surrendering. There is no wrong or right in history but what do you think about this event?
Yes, Korea thought that they achieved something great but it was just an empty victory.

In my opinion, wars contribute to progress.

War is a conflict carried on by force of arms. Progress is a development of growth. There are happened three world wars that humanity will never forget. World history is based of these wars. Wars contribute to progress although in many cases they bring destruction and loss. There are positive and negative affects of war on the world.
Wars contribute to progress economically and politically. According to the world history in the past wars always contributed towards progress. Medicine has always progressed during wartime because there are more casualties that need to be dealt with and most technology was originally designed for military reasons. In the past humanity believed that wars contributed to expand government power and control. Many historians of our century agree that wars contributed to progress in a technical sphere.
In order to have peace you need war and if there war, then all the soldiers, spies, generals would lose their jobs and become homeless. And it would also be weird to have people follow the rules everyday which would make life boring.
just as killing can be a good thing, if someone enters your home and threatens your family, and you blow him or her away, problem solved !

Are you telling the truth because we Americans sadly never hear criticism about our county.
