    Humanity as a whole is pretty horrible, but we always surbive, band together, and keep going in the face of the consequences of our actions.

    War is war. Like Covid is covid. It can act its black magic as well as good

    I don't think we can really justify trying to settle moral issues with physical fighting, as it only proves who has the strongest army.

    Wars are good for fighting against regimes, but bad because of the loss of lives. We just need to weigh up the consequences.

    Wars can topple oppressive regimes, such as WW2 in Germany, but will always lead to nothing but utter destruction.

    The good consequences of war don't justify the act in itself, but the advances, at least medically, certainly have saved many lives.

    War is a justified cause when ridding the world of the evil of people like Hitler or Saddam Hussein

    Also the cuban revolution resulted in tremendous inequality between the people and government bureaucrats.

    Some of the facts on this are inaccurate. The bombs dropped on Japan in WW2 were not hydrogen bombs.

    Without WWII, we would be nowhere near as medically advanced as we are today, however, it this was not accomplished morally.

    Human life is invaluable and irreplaceable; to justify sacrificing someone is insuperable.Even when benefits arise, does this outweigh life?

    I don't think war is a good idea. Didn't know about Roald Dahl though- who knows if he'd be famous if it weren't for his war experiences

    I don't think it is worth all the death just for some people in the future to have new inventions like rubber tyres...
