*facepalm*

The point was, we didn't need to bomb the crap out of Iraq to get Saddam. Could've got him with covert operations; without taking civilian life.
Ah, I get it. Want to know the reason why we invaded though? Because Bush was mad that Saddam tried to kill his daddy. >_>

While I continue looking for my info, I have a question.

The article that you posted, what is the main concepts of it? There are a couple I have in mind, but I'm not sure if they are correct.

EDIT: While looking for info, I found that so many countries opposed Saddam's death. It's funny that the US was like the only one that wanted him dead. That MUST say something, correct?

With Saddam dead = more control over a country with no proper leadership = useful to the USA. USA don't do anything major unless it's to benefit them in some form.
Exactly. Almost every country, expect a couple of allies, protested this act. Saddam wasn't the greatest, or good at all for that matter, but it's better than foreign occupancy.

And as for my previous post, all I have to say is never believe your friends until you research it first. >_> He made me look like a dumbass. -__-

Ever been into a quarrel between two kids fighting over candy? or Santa Claus?

It's pointless, isn't it? Just like war, I find it to be completely pointless. :verymad:

While many people have viewpoints that perceive war to be gruesome and unwanted, I'd like to provide an alternative viewpoint that sometimes violence did solve the problem much quicker. While it is to be used as a last resort because of the destruction and damage it would bring - be it in material or emotional well-being of both the contenders, war is extremely effective in resolving certain disputes for the past 30 years.

Take the Gulf War for example, violence ended a struggle between Kuwait and Iraq within a week. Without violence in terms of warfare, diplomacy may require up to 6 months or more for demilitarisation.

I'm not talking about modern warfare in the recent years though. With the amount of weaponry and the deadly arsenals of nuclear and chemical weapons, many countries have this policy of Mutual Assured Destruction, which is itself a great deterrence from aggressive behaviour of other countries.
I think Russia is rumoured to have an auto-pilot nuclear missile launch in the direction of hostile missile.

Evidently, talk is cheap. Action in terms of raw weaponry and military strength is what is keeping the world stable today because no one is willing to risk destruction by deploying weapons.

Just my few cents worth of opinions that may be flawed - feel free to rebut any and provide constructive discussion material :)

Without War, some nasty people would be in power and If they were left in power then there could be more death and suffering.

^This.

Also, by nature humans are in a state of war, and no such thing as peace for us. Our stubborn, ignorant, and power hungry nature makes us fight, in turn causing this. We are like a game basically, except it's real (I hope).

Yeah, unless there is equal distribution of resources and wealth in a utopia, there will always be fighting going on because there is insufficient resources for everyone to enjoy equally.

"What are my thoughts on War?"

With the complexities, perceived by us, this world is in chaos. That is, these sides within war are simply the differentiators that causes chaos, or simply is chaos. War, then, is simply this chaos staying in order. In other words, it will fall through in "attempt", if you will, to keep order just as water should fall down a river and not stand still. It is simply a consequence of the complexities we are able to perceive. So then we can assume war is natural. It will happen just as you were created. Destruction is creation.

War is great without it there would be no radio and therefore no television as well there wouldn't be a need for computers and worst of all no gamingforce ;)

Well I don't see it as either. Being human it does bother me to know that others are suffering and dieing for/from it, but I know it's just a natural thing that we are able to experience and judge. But that's where I stop, somewhere in the judging. That is where it becomes more relative to you and is of course is where "It is great" or "It is bad" is coming from. It's neither if you try "looking" at it from a more external point of view. For example, the stars don't give a hoot about our "specific" wars. We are just ants, if you will. Or just the earth changing as anything else, even.
