    Revolutions are far more effective.

    I would have to respectfully disagree with such a generalized statement (quote). On my side of the family we have been involved in conflicts to include, but not limited to, the English Civil War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812 and the American Civil War. I would have to say that I believe that all the men who both fought and lived and fought and died were fighting for something and to me they count for everything.

    War -all wars- have a reason. You and I may or may
    not agree with whatever that reason is. But that does
    not make that war any less important.
     
  8. Just because some people profit from wars, doesn't mean the wars were for profit.

    Every war I can think of was caused by one side or the other wanted money or power from the other. So in my opinion war is about lining peoples pockets.

    I have to

    I agree 100% my family also has been in wars dating back to the English civil war up to Afghanistan which I was a part of in the Marines... They are some good reasons and some reasons that aren't so good... But there is a purpose for them..
