Calvin: Dad, how do soldiers killing each other solve the world's problems? I think grown-ups just act like they know what they're doing.

Theres a thing called just war theory wich states that some wars are acceptable while others are not. Take for instance in WWII The allies were fighting an actual evil. yet their are wars like The Crusades, VIetnam, Korean wars wich were foght over religions and economic/government systems. And their are wars like WWI wich happened just because the heir to the throne of AustriaHunagry was shot by a Serbian nationalist Austria Hungary threw a hissy fit and declared war on Serbia Serbia asked France for help and Austria asked for Germany pretty soon Russia, the ottoman empire, UK,Belgium, USA Canada etc. were involved. Then their were wars like the first gulf war over stinking oil and the Afghanistan and Iran wars wich for the most parts are flat hot messes wich I’m not even going to get into. A long time ago the reasons for war were ridiculouis, land some dispute with two monarchs etc. Nowadays wars are fought for those same reasons but we do have some fought over liberty and justice. The problem is there are so many hazy limits. I personally believe in non violence but sometimes war is the only option still when its like that its probably the opposite partys fault. Basically I’m saying war should be considered a last option when all diplomacyand peace keeping ways have failed then you may have the problem of either going to war are having worse things happen. The thing is what is worse I mean we lost Vietnam but it wasn’t that bad heck we shouldn’t have been there in the firdt place. But if WWII had ended badly well lets try not to think about that. In short soldiers killing each other makes the world problems erupt. War is terrible but what we need is for Everyone to stop being jerks and become pacifists for it to end because of protection. Meanwhile, us Pacifists are standing were we are waiting for the rest of the world to catch up.
