Exploration 11 Revision

I chose to do a revision on this exploration because it was one of my favorite topics. This is because this exploration topic is still happening and it hits home to a lot of people. The War in Afghanistan has been a war that has many mixed feelings from every spectrum and every side. This is also a war that has many factors to it and choosing one said or the other might be difficult but, some are sometimes stronger than others. This is obviously that the Afghanistan war should end.   
            War on its own is wrong and should be avoided totally. So allowing war because it might increase something will not benefit society as a whole in the end of the day. The war is not only hurting the soldiers in America, but there are innocent civilians in Afghanistan. For example, it has been reported that there were acid attacks happening to innocent people that don’t deserve to be in that kind of situation.  “It's the latest cruel tactic in the Pakistani Taliban's battle to stop girls and women from getting an education: acid thrown in their faces to scar them for life and deter others from following in their footsteps” (Khan). Tactics for this type of horrible treatment is getting more cruel and unethical; little is being done to stop this. Unless the war does not end, mindless and useless behavior like this will continue.
            Even though there are two sides to every story, what is happening in Afghanistan can only have one outcome. Some people might have good reasons for supporting the war, and hoopoes my very strong thoughts against the war. For example, they might say that this war is beginning to the end on terrorism. But is war the only way to end things? The obvious answer is no to the common man. If anyone in their right mind would know that there are multiple and peaceful ways to resolve a crisis. To support the war, you would to support the killing of hundreds and thousands of innocent civilians. Some may say that this war is like any other war. But why would we want it to be like every other war? Why don’t we want to bring to it to an end? The people all around the world should realize that it is time for change to happen, not war.
            All in all, I believe that any war is wrong. The war in Afghanistan is especially wrong because of all the torturing that is happening to the innocent civilians and the soldiers of ours.  People in America should realize that nothing is worth going to war over, especially money and gaining power; which is problem and one of the main reasons in this world. Power gain and greed could not amount to all the tragedies brought on by this war.
