I think Greg Universe said it best, "No such thing as a good war." War is hell. And all those poets who preach the glory and righteous valor of war? Bull. War is blood and guts, death and suffering. Even a war fought for good reasons is still a horrible maelstrom of pain. No one should want to fight a war, and I'm sure most who do wind up in one would much rather forget it. Still, at times war is something that must be used. Peace is of course the desired status quo, and in a perfect world that would always be the case. But life is quite often imperfect, and as much as we would wish it to be otherwise, sometimes we have to make the hard choices.

As a character in one of my stories says: "I'd fight to the death to protect what I love, but war as a general rule is just pointless death and destruction." Suffice to say, it's one of the few stories where I actually killed a character. And the most innocent one at that.

Indeedy. There's very little that's pleasant and happy about war. Really is pointless death and destruction.

Hard choices... they come out the the hardest for those who had the choice made for them. Or even (in the case of suicide terrorists) got tricked/indoctrinated into believing they are on the right/good side.

Also, if wars weren't good business for some people, I'd bet we had much less of them.

Very true. Though, granted, some of our most important advances have come about because of war, but that's really not to say that wars are good things. Some good can come out of them, but the war itself? Pretty messy, and pretty horrific.
