I'm guessing you have no rebuttal?

If that is the case I urge voters (if any should actually vote) to vote in favor of my stance.

Know what, I am dumb. Sorry sleep deprived.

I realized that was your opener and stance.

Well, I'll tackle your title initially and let you rebuttal in round two.

As for war being the only reason for a nation's success. That honestly couldn't be further from the truth.

According to a massive Bloomberg report, some of the most successful and prosperous nations in the world are the ones that are not, nor have been been part of major conflicts in a long time.

The article is called..

The World's Most peaceful nations.

Along with countries like Denmark and their average 62K GDP per capita. Unemployment rate of 1.8% and an average school mean time of 16.7 years per citizen. I would say, that Denmark is doing alright. There are 26 other countries with like stats.

I await your response.

...You really want to stick with that wording? "War is the ONLY reason for a nations success"? Sure you don't want to rethink that word ONLY?
