War. It is one hell of a big deal to our country not only in the past, but as well as the future. War is the constant topic that politicians and protesters talk about. You can't escape it! Even the most popular games out there have to do something with war! Take chess, risk, or even any videogame! Why are some of us entertained by warr? Others scared or against? America was born out of war, andd really has been involved with them for the longest time! I'm not advocating for world peace here, but you have got to question why is war a constant reoccurence? What makes it so great to the people who play the games, or why it is an option to solve our problems?
Humans to my belief are violent in nature. If our way of life or something we love is at risk by an opposing force we are so hastly to get into defensive mode and fight for it. Now that might not be the case for the past wars, but I just believe that it is in our nature. Now we all have learned about WWI and WWII, but honestly what have we leaned from them? Just that communism under a dictator can ead to very bad things that's what. If we have really leaned from the past wars why are we still in wars? It beats the hell out of me. However, my biggest fear would have to be the fact that WWIII is definetly a possibility. It's out there and it could be coming. To kids my age that could mean getting drafted in our lifetime. Many people believe the war could have started with the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008 as described here http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2008/08/georgia-latest/. Or when North Korea bombeed an island in South Korea. Many different people have different ideas and views how WWIII would start. For example, in this website here http://future.wikia.com/wiki/Scenario:_World_War_IIIthe person who wrote this gives in almost exact detail on how WWIII starts and plays out. War is also very present in entertainment today. Escpecially in videogames. Homefront is a brand new videogames that just came out, and might I add it is very controversal the games focus is. Homefront is about how north Koreans take over the Asain countries as well as the U.S. Not only is the focus controversal, but it tells how this all happens in a very detailed way. A timeline is shown at the beginning on how the takeover of the U.S. starts.
Although many people have their own opinions I question the coming of the next war. Is WWIII going to happen? Have we become too used to the idea of war? Or can we stop war from continuing? One way or another I believe war is inevitable and war.. War never changes.
