depends on the problem(s).

War can solve a lot of problems (justification of high military spending, increasing low presidential rating polls, giving kickbacks to old buddies for business transactions aka spoils of war, need for more land/minerals/natural resources, need for more population/skilled workers)

War can create problems too (cycles of hatred and violence, political/regional instability, civilian injuries and casualties, a shift in the balance of power/hegemony (can be "good" or "bad" depending on what country you're rooting for), damage to the infrastructure of an invaded country, post traumatic stress disorder for anyone involved in combat)

Violence never solved anything. Maybe in a few rare cases though. tongue.gif

What should the question according to you be.
Please suggest as to what I may add , so that the question is apt.

I just want to know it in general , not asking about a particular war !

theres nothing general about war, each war is unique because if its reasons and consequences and whos involved and shit like that. sometimes war is the solution to "the problems", such as stopping nazis. sometimes there are much better ways to solve problems besides war.

my suggestion would be that you ask about a particular war

Hence why so few wars are fought in the name of peace.
I believe that all forms of diplomacy should be used but War should not be ruled out. Some people will only react to direct conflict.
Look at the African Warlords. We can make as many UN sanctions as we want but they still keep doing what they are doing only they make more of their people suffer.
It's not pleasant and it's not ideal and no one ever truly wins but war is a necessity we should except.

War is not the answer.

To quote Rem from Trigun "If violence seems to be the only answer you aren't looking hard enough." Okay so it's not an exact quote but it goes something like that.

War will only spark more hatred and eventually hatred will lead into revenge. the bombings we heard now a days around the world is all because of hatred and revenge.

War is a "Necessary evil." Although it should never be considered as the first choice, it is an excellent fallback in some cases. This is, of course, taking all military actions with a grain of salt, separating the wars themselves from the atrocities frequently committed during them.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

the question was indeed very vague. is it a solution? Yes it is a solution. Now, is it a good or ethical solution? No, never. It may be necessary or much quicker and easier than diplomacy and other non violent means, but never ethical. When you take a life, even for the greater good, you are playing god. Sometimes though nethical things must be done.

Peh, idealists...

War is necessary. There can not be humans without conflict. It is in our nature and our mental programming.'


Now, full-scale war? Nuclear warfare? All of that can and should be avoided.

Nothing says 'I'm right and you're wrong' like an old-fashioned swordfight.

All hails the next White House Apprentice @The Dan

*claps, whistles from big-boop girls*

----
As a citizen who lives in a Third World Country, I strongly disagree that "war is neccesary"... There might be conflicts but conflicts can be resolved through table and chairs instead of bullets and guns...

Once again, narrow minded-ness and pride comes during negotiating with both side wants a Win-Lose situation, instead of a Win-Win situation...
