Is War Beneficial to Mankind?
War is a horrible medium, which has been used for hundreds of thousands of years, to achieve certain goals through the use of force. The major causes for war are resources, which can be territory, water, gold, minerals or animals; and ideologies: political beliefs, religion, philosophical differences. In other words, brutal outrageous kings, rulers, commanders and emperors possessed the purpose of having power and control over the whole world. But do these egoistic goals really bring benefit to humanity?
Many people are sure that any war is unfair and should be stopped, as it brings only harm and damage. People are losing their homes, relatives, lives, but they aren’t even the part of the war. Many men want to refuse participating in war and killing people, but they must do it because of a draft. Millions of innocent people are dying, e.g. casualties in WWI were above 11 millions, in WWII – almost 60 millions, and in the War in Iraq – already near 107 thousands and the death count still increases every day.
War also destroys the towns, earth, and nature and brings terrible chaos to the land, where it occurs. Many plants, factories, historical buildings are crushed down and there is the enormous harm to the environment. Mother Nature gives all men so many miracles, and in return it gets great suffering from such a horrible activity as war.
Moreover, war affects every citizen, as everybody has to pay money for the soldiers, theirs travels and food. For example, in the WWI 196.5 billion of dollars was spent, in the WWII – $2,091.3 billion, and the War in Iraq has already cost $753,201,827,717 and has increased by $102, 734 while I was writing these words. It means that some people pay for the death of others without being able to refuse from it.
