I will probaly recieve harsh criticism on this piece but it is my personal opinion on war.

Is war about revenge or to help others.
War is misunderstood as being carnage and bloodbaths as winter is called ugly.
What we do not understand we shove away and consider it madness or oblivious. What we do not understand we take offensive. Take the Vietnam war in a way
We lost therefore the men whom served in war were punished by Americans. We think of ourselves as a superior race smarter than foreign countries. Are we no better than the Nazis whom thought themselves better than everyone. We may not admit it and we may not kill but deep down at times we think we are better than the rest. We may even say we are the best but this is how wars begin. We are not like Nazis in any way, shape, or form however if we think so highly of ourselves then why are people dying each day to save us. I f we truly are a perfect nation as some say then why do we fight in wars. The answer we are not a perfect nation we are a free nation. War is a necessity to survive anywhere if we do not fight and simply ignore it we will surely die. War is neither a farce nor carnage war is important no matter the cost. To have war is to survive though the war in the middle east is bad with people dying each day there is a chance that those who die are giving us more time to live. To live a safer life.
War is a necessity.
