A war is "an armed conflict between two countries or two parties in the same country" as it is defined in the Oxford Dictionary.It is usually waged that's to say carried on to obtain a nation's freedom or indepence. Better than that its motive could be self-defence. However, nothing justifies the victims it results in or the human losses. Indeed, thousands of people die, whole families split up and lots of children become orphans. Furthermore, people live in fear and suffering some even a long time after the war ends. In fact, many people who survived wars keep having nightmares. They cannot forget the horrors they saw or the terrible situations they faced.
However, as much terrible as all this may sound, many people use wars to make profit. What is revolting, they commercialise it and design war video and computer games and even toys. They not only aim teenagers and adults but also children with the various toys they invent. Thus, teaching them social codes of life is no more the goal but teaching them violence, indifference and cruelty. As a matter of fact, to see children playing with weapons or aiming and shooting at humans in video games, watching and causing blood scenes, isn't shocking any more.
To conclude, wars are synonym of death, fear and suffering. Indeed, No one is able to live normally if his country is in state of war. Beides, designing war games means that we are teaching our children the arts of war and that we are telling them it is alright to wage wars!!!

Even though they suffered great losses, the Japanese confirmed how civilized and disciplined they are.
Here are the ten things people all over the world can learn from them:
1.The Calm: not a single visual of wild grief or chest-beating. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
2. The dignity: disciplined queues for water and groceries. not a rough word or a rude gesture.
3. The Ability: the incredible architects, for example. In fact, buildings swayed but didn't fall down or collapse.
4. The Grace: People only bought what they needed for the present so everybody could get something.
5. The Order: No looting in shops. No hooting and no overtaking on the roads, only understanding.
6. The Sacrifice: Fifty workers stayed back to pump water into Nuclear reactors. How will they be ever repaid?
7. The Tenderness: the restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The weak cared for the strong.
8. The Training: The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do and they just did that.
9. The Media: They showed magnificient restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters.
10. The Conscience: When the power went off in a store, customers put back things on the shelves and left quietly.
