I think it’s safe to say that we all agree that war is a terrible thing and cannot be justified, WW2 excepted.
But it is Civil war that I find perplexing…what drives a man to take up arms against his own countrymen, his neighbours, his own kin, the guy he was having a glass of wine with a few months back.
We’ve had 2 civil wars in the UK because of the stupid actions of King Charles 1, Americans have suffered 1 because of various issues, slavery being primary I believe.
Most countries have had internal conflict but surely these wars could have been avoided if the opposing factions had just got their heads together and worked it out without bloodshed.
“In war there are no winners, just dead people, orphans, widows and destruction”
This would have been a good opener, so why didn’t they do it?
