Is war ever be justified: Essay 1 For centuries, war was a way to end all the conflicts in the world based on economy, politics, demography, geography, ethnic differences,... But why do people fight, why war is so necessary for certain people? Is it the only solution? What is the real intention of war apart for killing and hurting people?!

War is a horrible fight between countries; it kills thousands, even millions of people. Whatever the reason might be, I think war is something we should try to avoid if possible. Killing and destroying other people's life is unacceptable. People go into war for countless reasons; but power is a main factor of war.
