Sing it again y'all...

War is good for:
1) Getting rid of all those weapons you made
2) Creates a good market for our arms industry for trade with other countries (Iraq for example)
3) Gives the goverment a means of uniting the country (Falklands for exaample)
4) Is really good at killing lots and lots of innocent people!
5) Finishing off what your father couldn't
6) Proving you're a "man"
7) Keeping down the population of fit able bodied males, wouldn't want too many kids with fathers would we!

(And before I incur the wrath of anyone, I know that not just fit able bodied men go to war however, the majority of non-civilian war casualties are soldiers/airmen/seamen who are also usually fit able bodied males. I await the inevitable backlash)

War is bad for:

1) It has not, does not and will not acheive anything that could not be resolved without war, or before the need for war arises. War is an all to often used last resort. It's poo.

War is good for peace........
There is a balance in the world.....

Pain is good for pleasure....
War for Peace
love for hate....
and on and on and on.......


Beside the fact that we are all humans.....
we dont learn...we dont swallow our pride....
we dont let anyone say or do anything offensive to us........war is as natural as peace.....
war is a conflict.....peace is an agreement....
and it's in the human nature to live the balance between them


Peace

I like Fire.. :)

War is good killing people....
Destroying lives....
Making mindless bigots out of those left alive...

It can solidify cultures...
Bring people closer together...

Deepen racial/ethnic hatreds.....

Make people realize they arn't all that different...

It has positives and negatives, but the negatives sure are worse!

The current war is doing wonders for the sales of gas masks.
