War is often seen as a means to an end, but to some, the casualties of war are far too significant to justify. Throughout the centuries, there have been plenty of wars, some legitimate and some that without reason. But regardless of the reasons, the casualties of war remain the same, loss of human life.

He discloses to them that he is there to talk so anyone might hear the second some portion of their supplication for triumph, the part which they have certainly longed for yet have not talked resoundingly themselves: the petition for the anguish and pulverization of their foes.

Amid the mid 1900 's, Americans were made up for lost time in the possibility of government, or extending their impact to different nations utilizing military power.
