Introduction: War is an armed conflict between different countries or different groups within a country. War is a horrible thing. Most wars in history were the outcomes of selfishness and longing for the power of some crazy leaders.
Why Wars: There are wars and wars. There are wars to protect a country, religion and oppression. War to fight against tyranny and oppression. Again wars occur to quench the thirst of some bloody imperialists. In history, we see that some strong nations under crazy leaders waged war with other countries and toppled down innocent humanity. Sometimes war may be necessary but there is nothing great or spectacular about war. War is always the expression of an animal in man.
Evils of it: There have been many wars in the world since ancient times. Ancient warfare was a martial and courtly practice. Citizens, in general, were not affected. But modern wars have completely fallen apart. It is the father of many evils – political, religious and economic. The battlefield is a ghostly scene of defeat and destruction. Thousands of people die of starvation, disease or suffering. Thousands of homes and families are cleaned out of existence. The main business of war is to destroy cities, burn croplands, turn fruitful areas into deserts etc. War multiplies widows and orphans. Certainly, war is abominable. Every war costs a huge amount of money and lives. After the war, the government imposes all kinds of taxes on the people. The prices of all commodities go up. As a direct effect of the war, trade and commerce get badly affected. Industries are disorganized and the progress of a nation stops suddenly. War is the enemy of culture. In times of war, all schools and colleges remain closed. Such are the evils of war.
Conclusion: The victory of peace is better than the victory of war. Both warring parties are equally afflicted and have to pay the price for their stupidity. Yet each war only leads to the next. Therefore, leaders should learn the lesson from history that war brings no good to humanity but chaos, death and destruction. They should find out the points of contention among nations and solve them in some amicable and peaceful ways and take a vow to avoid war anyway. 0 0 0
