World War 2

            No matter what mankind accomplishes we will always continue to fight against one another because confrontation between civilizations has, and always will be, burned into our instinctive nature. As pathetic and degrading as it sounds, the human race has always resorted to warfare as a means of resolving conflict between nations. All great nations have had unthinkable accounts of bloodshed as a result of warfare: from ancient Babylon to England and even contemporary America. The human race gives life, and then at the first hint of a disagreement, takes it away at the speed of a bullet. .
             Throughout mankind's history there have been quite a number of these "disagreements" that seemed to have sparked the wick for warfare. Whether or not religion was the soul purpose of the conflict or if it was a mere fraction of the confrontation, religion has always played a part in any war. This is ironic because the sixth commandment is "Thou shall not murder." Most likely more people have died in the name of God than for any other reason. .
             We begin our discussion of American Warfare by starting off with the war that was supposed to end all wars: World War I. This war began with a single bullet that would change international relationships forever. It all started on June 28th, 1914 in Austria-Hungary when a group called the "Black Hand" assassinated the Arch Duke, Francis Ferdinand. (Adams, 7) .
             This "Black Hand" was based in Serbia, and as a result of the murder, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia on July 28th, 1914. No single person is of such significance that his or her murder should be avenged by warfare. The Austrians were blinded by such rage at the death of their Arch Duke that they declared war for the sole purpose of revenge. Sending troops into war to have most of them die is not of appropriate means to justify somebody's death. But, Austria-Hungary did this and as a result the Russian army had to be mobilized in order to protect borders from Serbia as well as Germany.
