personally I hate war. with every thing that I've learned war just leaves sadness on both sides!! I think we need to forget war altogether!!!! but lets see what YOU all think about war.....

It is apparently logically genocidal to deny the absolute fact the war has no meaningful bearing. labor is one factor that boost production. labor in the form of human or physical effort is made manifest when war break out and labor (man) is conquered.Before 1700s the wars that were fought between the people of Fante and the Asante people in the Gold Coast involved capturing of slaves. With that not withstanding royalties are paid to conquerors which aids in a developmental project. Territorial expansion is one benefit of war. why do you think Hitler engaged in war apart from getting rid off the Jewish people? The absolute answer is territorial expansion.

still war is insane!! all it proves is who's insane enough to shoot the other guys till their dead....... I think if we all really had common sense we'd all realize that all this does is leave needless blood shed everywhere..... and sadness on both sides.

It is so pathetic when our sane conscience is been overridden by our emotions. Got to think of it, war has rendered many people with great opportunities like employment which is just a gist of it. What about the case where a country has been invaded by strong military might and there is the need to defend it citizens? War is necessary when defending of your citizenry is at stake.

but why must the strong invade the week?! I thought we were a SMART race. so why must we still answer to our primal instincts?!!! if we do not evolve past those base primal instincts we will not move forward!! instead we will knock each other down with every little thing we say or do!! WE MUST EVOVLE PAST THOSE PRIMAL INSTINCTS IF WE PLAN TO SURVIVE!!!

The weak you said? well, international relations actions a of countries cannot be predicted so who do you call the weak.Even diplomacy has a destructive form called the gunboat diplomacy or even coercive diplomacy. Sometimes certain policies taken by countries which bring a war is to the benefit of the global world. Imagine if the U.S.A hadn't invade Iraq in 2003 when it was suspected that they had nuclear weapons?

Reasons for voting decision: While Con was very passionate about her case all she did was state how wrong war is. Pro brought up excuses to go to war that were not properly refuted. Also, pro brought up exceptional cases to go to war that were not refuted.
