some people think that war is needed for rebellions and some major stuff. I say, No. War is never needed and should not be done. I will give two reasons that support this. First, War can give major damage after it. Second, Sometimes, The war may not be something to fight about. In other words, It means that it can be ended with talk.

Yes, The war is necessary under certain circumstance.
-War can be a way to achieve political justice
For example, French revolution, Was the war between citizens and royal army. Brutalities and cruelty happened, But as a result, We gained democracy and civil rights.
-War can give a lesson to society
After WW2, Was the golden age of capitalism. WW2 showed us that government can enforce market in the wartime, So they tried same in the peaceful time. And technology advanced, In account of war. Radar system, And satellites would not be born, Without WW2, Those were used to be military use, But we are using it for peaceful purpose.
-Fear of the war prevent more conflicts
Ironically, Chance of WW3 breaking out is relatively small, Despite of the recent development of nuclear weapons. After WW2, People knew how terrible the war is. They learned that total war can cause mass suffering and deaths, And even annihilation of the country. After big war, People try NOT to do it again. I do not intend to say war should break out, But big war gives a lesson to our society,
Thank you.

yeah, But war, As I told you can be very harsh to many people and to the society. Even if people get some lessons and learn from it, What is the matter of lessons if the people die a lot and the country falls? Then the lessons will not be needed. It will have no matters. Also, The revolutions like the French revolution was not like a big war against two countries what is our debate topic. Also, Wars can kill many people. Some wars are still happening all over the world and tons of innocent people are dying. So are young kids. The crops and land may become vast fields which nothing can be done. Therefore, War is never necessary.

-I agree that citizens gets harm in the wartime. But we easily rely on violence and war to fight against invaders and exploiters, And corrupted government, Or to get lost territory back. If your town is under attack, Only way to defend yourself is to declare war in the attackers. Since illegal occupation of country's territory and economic exploitation, And pressure on civil right does not end, War is last way to solve this problem
-the impact of war matters. There were one big one for every centuries. With every bitter and harsh, Terrible experience, We became more mutual. Technology also advanced in account of it. Killing each other is bad, But technological and philosophical advancement comes after it is great. How can you try to avoid war that has never happened and imagine brutality of battlefield if there is none of them?

Yes, But do you need to do "war"? Actually, You can try to talk to the enemy or try to figure it out. Just doing war without some type of specific reason is very negative. Also, War is not the wa4y to fight back. What about Korea's 4. 19 revolution? Can we possibly call that a war? What about Gandhi's work in India? Can we call that a war? No. Those were not wars. Even though Korea's fight made lots of people who died, It was less bad than most wars. Aso, Gandi's protest was peaceful. He did not use strength or guns to fight. Yes, It is true that many people died. But there were fewer victims than when there was a war. Like that, People can avoid war but make a better accomplishment than doing war. Yes, If even that doesn't work, We would have to do war. BUt that it only very negative cases. Also, Like I said before. War give much harm to citizens. Therefore, War is not necessary.
