Introduction

´╗┐war should always be avoided. do you agree? I disagree with the statement that war should always be avoided because war is usually the last resort and is only done after a long amount of thought and consideration. Wars can sometimes be essential for fighting against oppression and unfairness.

He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves? . This shows Jesus using violence to solve an issue for a greater cause and this is exactly why wars are considered to be acceptable as they can be there for the greater good.

Conclusion

Also, sometimes war can be avoided with ease such as peace conferences and agreements and this in turn can save lives and money too and hence war should always be avoided as it saves lives. In my opinion I believe that war should be avoided but it is not always. It should be avoided when the reason to fight for is not as good such as for land. Also war must be avoided if it does not follow the just war rules set by religions. It can be waged to save lives and save countries from dictators. It is always a last resort and can be helpful for freedom or independence. Hence I think that war should be avoided but not always. ...read more.
