Better to live in peace than to begin a war and lie dead “Chief Joseph” Manifestly war is not good act or solution to any problem. A war apparently seems little word but its results are disastrous and harmful. Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through negotiations and understandings. A new study shows that 60% of the world’s war have lasted for at least a decade just take a example of US-Afghan war it held for more than decade.

Better to live in peace than to begin a war and lie dead “chief Joseph” Manifestly war is not good act or solution to any problem. A war apparently seems little word but its results are disastrous and harmful. Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through negotiations and understandings. A new study shows that 60% of the world’s war have lasted for at least a decade just take a example of US-Afghan war it held for more than decade.
During the last 10 years of US-afghan war, thousands of civilians had been killed by air strikes supposedly targeting the Taliban. USA and NATO commanders could consult with the afghan authorities before intiating operations. Despite, occupiers turned a deaf ear to pleas and cries. Against this backdrop, the unprecedented attack on families asleep in their homes came as anti-foreign sentiment which was already running high after the Afghans discovered that the USA troops had burned copies of the holy Quran. USA used all his power and spent much on this disastrous war but it ended up with social and economic losses of both the countries. Besides, the world is still facing the effects of first and second world war. During the world war II America used nuclear weapons against Japan resultant thousands of people lost their lives. Still people of Japan are facing health issues due to Nuclear Weapons.
War on Terror
We can’t say that the war is final solution. War is wastage of time, energy, power and huge money as Pakistan spent a large portion of its budget on war against terror but still no appreciation from the countries which rather to promote peace not war with the Muslims. Thus, Pakistan ended up with huge loss of precious lives, money and power.
Conflicts Over Kashmir Between Pakistan and India
If we talk about Pakistan and India, since 1947, both the countries are fighting over Kashmir. Both the countries have spent lot on defense but no fruitful results obtained besides heavy losses on both side and still the fate of Indian occupied Kashmir is in limbo. War just ruins the future of generation! Therefore, no nation has saved itself from its scourge to till date.
Charles Sumner once said, “Give me the money that has been spent on war and I will clothe every man, woman and child in an attire of which kings and queens will be proud. I will build the schoolhouse in every valley over the whole earth I will crown every hillside with a place of worship consecrated to peace”. After every war, there has been turmoil and participants have suffered a lot and have grown antipathy against each which requires minor friction ensuing into another conflict.
Causes of War
There is great debate over why wars happen, even when most people do not want them to. Representatives of many different academic disciplines have attempted to explain war. While, many theories put forth over the years as to why wars happen. So, the war can be fought either for economic gain, revenge, competition over territory/ territorial gain or for religion. Other main reason can be the lack of planning and understanding. War is nothing but a barbaric act that can only give disastrous results and war can leads to the inflation rise. Because government spends more on weapons and spends in preparing warriors and on defense and to overcome the economic crisis they(Government) starts tax culture and increases the general price level of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. In other words, it increases your cost of living.
Great Nations Win Without Fighting
“Great nations win without fighting” Fight is always curse because it has taken countless lives throughout the world. Hence, the meaning of fight here interpret is “WAR”. Now, in my view great nations here mean those nations who do not fight to achieve its goals. i.e. to progress, to have influence over the world.
From the above conflicts it is crystal clear that war only cause harm and gives disastrous result. War only bring social and economic destruction to the countries. Most of the countries developed or under-developed countries have realized that no war can bring peace. Only peaceful negotiations and talks can bring peace and harmony among nation.
