    War, huh, what is it good for?

    War is a natural human trait, it’s in our nature to be possessive over our borders and possessions.  Since time began people have gone to war, and fought side by side with comrades and enemies alike.

    Currently the UK is involved in two wars, we all know which they are. Iraq is a sticky subject which causes conjecture and dispute amongst those who have an opinion. 

    Personally I feel the war was justified in that the removal of a tyrannical government cannot be a bad thing, however with the inevitable death and destruction it brings it’s natural that in two-thousand and eleven we question its moral basis.

    The problem lies in both sides fighting the war. You loose soldiers on both sides of the fence.

    Now, I’m not going to sit here and berate the bravey of those soldiers who fight for freedom and peace, it takes guts to go to war and follow orders that might mean you die, but these soldiers know the risk they take going to war, and no matter what you say so do their families. 

    We, as the people of a country at war need to show them respect but keep in mind that, no matter how you put it, a soldier at war is fulfilling his duty and completing the job he signed up for, and unfortunately death is a hazard of the job.
