I think you misinterpreted what I was saying. I was not implying we shouldn't try to reduce war or be more humane about it, but rather stating the truth of the matter:

-War is ugly.
-War will, in some way, always be ugly.
-People die in war (at least, actual wars as opposed to a single individual "declaring war" on another).
-To win a war, you must sacrifice some sort of resource to achieve a goal. -According to 1984 by George Orwell, the most directly effective yet least benevolent method is for the goal to be the sacrifice of that resource.
-Resources can range from human beings to the materials that are used to create the weaponry used in war to a strategic position.
-A war without bloodshed or weaponry is not actually war. More likely, it's either economics, politics, or a video game.
-[FALLOUT]War...war never changes.[/FALLOUT]
