I have been wondering why are people so against theses wars, i am not pro or anti against them. However is going to war to secure resources not one of the most valid reasons? I mean we all use oil, gas and various minerals in our everyday lifes which keeps the west strong and a desirable habitat. Would you be happy for us to lose our way of life and not engage in these activities to sink into 3rd world life? To be honest in the animal and human kingdoms every single conflict has been to gather resources and land mass. Even the world wars where about resources and land mass, so what makes Afghan/Iraq so different? Should we not pursue wealth, power and a very very comfortable lifestyle only activities like these can bring?
