It's a judgement call. I wouldn't go to war if I didn't think it was worth the risk. You have to leave your options open... there may come a time when you really need something or really want something, and there's no other way to get it.Originally posted by: flavio
So you'll pretty much support any war any time? We should probably be fighting just about all the time and it doesn't even matter with who by your logic.
Take for instance if you were in a country that was barren of natural resources. I have a great example... right now Saudi Arabia and Kuwai are living pretty good due to one thing... oil. For the time being they're in good shape. What are they supposed to do when the oil wells run dry? What will they have then to support themselves? Sand? Desert? A time will come when they will have to fight for survival, and they'll either have to leave their homeland or they'll have to acquire something else.
