Myth: War Is Beneficial (summary) - World Beyond War . . .
But wars are also defended as being in some way beneficial. The reality is that wars do not benefit the people where they are waged, and do not benefit nations that send their militaries abroad to wage wars. Nor do wars help to uphold the rule of law -- quite the reverse. Good outcomes caused by wars are dramatically outweighed by the bad and could have been accomplishedwithout war.
