War may sometimes be a necessary evil but no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never good. President Obama who was given the Nobel Peace Prize seems to be as trigger-happy in declaring war as his predecessor President Bush was. It is a healthy sign that he has asked for Congressional approval first. What is further food for thought is that they have not learnt from their mistakes, leaving Iraq in shambles and Afghanistan in ruins while costing America in billions of dollars and thousands of lives they continues their aggression! Pentagon officials have acknowledged the risks in a strategy that declares that American ground forces will no longer be large enough to conduct prolonged, large-scale counterinsurgency campaigns like those in Iraq and Afghanistan.
