Quite a straight-forward question coming out of discussion in another thread and in light of the tragedies that have occurred this past week. Is war the answer in this situation and can it be for others? Can you meet terror with terror and violence with violence? What is the greater good?

If you are FOR it means you believe that war can never be justified and peaceful approaches are the only ways to solve global issues.
If you are AGAINST it means you believe that war can be justified and can be used as a means to solve issues.


While you are here, take a look at previous debates and if you haven't already, have your say in those too!

'The opt-out system for organ donation should be mandatory'
'Assissted suicide should be legalised'
'People who download illegally should be prosecuted'
'Capital Punishment should be reinstated'
'Voting should be compulsory'
'The voting age should be lowered to 16'
'Abortion should be made illegal in the UK'
'Animal testing should be outright banned'
'Vaccines should be a legal requirement'
'Religion does more harm than good'

I am more FOR than AGAINST. Sometimes it's the only thing left to do and it's human nature to resolve conflicts by using force. However, anything possible needs to be done to resolve situations peacefully without any major bloodshed. Fighting fire with fire doesn't extinguish it.

Can you change my vote to 'For' because I misinterpreted the question kink.gif

And I pretty much echo Conderella's post.

Yeah i agree with Condy too. With this current situation i am torn.. full blown war against one establishment which will no doubt lead to the death of thousands of civilians.. I am inclined to say that the attacks this week were a massive wake up call to the world that something has to be done and perhaps war is the only solution. But i don't think anything can ever stop such heinous acts from occurring.

I voted against, however like most people this question really isn't black and white to me. I think a few days ago I would've voted "for" this statement, but after the terror attacks I'm sadly beginning to believe maybe the only way we can defeat these terror threats is through war. I completely agree with Conderella though, in that every peaceful attempt HAS to be tried first.

God, I wish it never had to be justified. I wish we lived in a world where peaceful solutions could always be the answer, I would much prefer to be a pacifist and never have to go to war. However there are sometimes some groups which do threaten all of humanity and there's no getting rid of them any other way.

Yes, war, but only as an absolute last resort to take a stand against evil.
