war has always been a tool to fullfill certain international political/economical goal, from obtaining certain resources to anhaialating oposite political enemies. its just a tool, i can both solve and create a problem.
oh, and some of you said that wars occur cuz of things like pride, stubbornness or revenge... please dont be so naive, no war has ever ocurred cuz of such petty causes, the masses may be stupid, but the powerful leaders are not, they occur for money, directly or indirectly, world leaders have no pride or ideology, they would gladly admit they are wrong if it gets them a couple of millions, and no one is foolish enough to risk their position or resources to wage a pointless war about religion, revenge or pride, and if wars seem to happen cuz of that, then its just an excuse, today world leaders are too crafty to start wars on something so non-profitable as revenge...
please understand that a win-lose situation implies that someone will win, thats right, lots of people will die, but the ones who declared the war, the leaders, will not, and at the end of the bloody conlict they will be richer, and more powerful. a win-win situation may save lots of lives, but who cares about OTHER PEOPLE'S lifes when I can be much richer? those who fight are never who choose to fight, and those who benefit from it are never who pay for it.
the versallies treaty was win-lose right? it caused a war right? at the end of that war, besides the thousands of deaths, some people benefited, right? so, if you were one of those guys, why would you even care for the destruction it may have cuased? afterall, it did brought you some cash, didnt it? they ones who made the treaty werent moronic, they werent stubborn, they were smart, and they are rich.
as i said before, war is nothing but a tool, that runs on human lives
