• War is always bad, although bad is a mild word for what war really is. War is evil. It's heartache, destruction, and death. Pain and pestilence. People starving with no money and no place to live. War means shattered lives and broken spirits. War is the Dark Side, triumphant in all its sick and twisted glory.

      Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for. - Norman Schwarzkopf
  • It certainly keeps the population of humans down. Nevertheless, its bad.
  • War is -always- wrong. The big corporations & politicians are always the winners. Real human beings are always the losers. My 2 cents.
  • For the munitions and armaments business, War is what makes the world go around! :|
  • Bad for the victims. Good for the makers of arms.

      How about ending the Third Reich? That seemed like a pretty good reason to me.
  • war is not always wrong or evil. war is a big money maker for governments. war is the testing ground for new weapons. war is not about losing people's lives. there wasnt any draft for the Iraq invasion. People thought that they were defending the freedom of people everywhere. The use of the National Guard was not right. Yet, The Guard realized they were supposed to be guarding the usa. Yet they went where they were sent.
  • We " war" because of Satan... Jehovah God does NOT approve... (Psalm 46:9) He is bringing an end to wars throughout the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; He burns the military wagons with fire. Weapons of war and vehicles of war...all equipment designed for war, will be destroyed...

      God even gave his angels swords because he knows that you can't solve all your problems with kind words. Psalm 144:1

      That's correct. Believing the "golden rule" cam solve all our problems is na?ve. Instead, learn to tolerate your neighbor, not slaughter him.
  • Edwin Starr answered this question many years ago.
  • That depends on whether you're a peacemaker and arms dealer.
  • War is a business where the rich and connected cut down on the "stock" of the proletariat. Thus whether it's "good" or "bad" depends on where you stand in the platform of power.
  • It depends on your perspective. I've read all the comments below and it seems that universally, everyone thinks that war is bad pretty much no matter what. With that idea, I'm going to have to disagree. Sure, war is a terrible thing. Gen Robert E Lee said, "It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it." But is there nothing worth fighting for? Nothing that you would sacrifice for? Ponder that for a bit and there is your answer.
