PROMPT: There is an old cliché about war that says truth is the first casualty of war. However, the biggest casualties are made of flesh and blood.
Consider your readings and videoclips for this week along with your discussions in previous weeks and answer the following questions:
In your opinion what group/s of people comprise/s the largest casualties in a war? Explain.
Is there a difference in the way men and women think about war? How so or not so?
Who benefits from war and why? The word “benefit” is not meant to guide your response. Wars definitely have costs; is it possible there are benefits? What are the moral/ethical issues raised by this question/these questions with regards to war?
There is no one sentence that can respond to these difficult questions; be detailed and include references if applicable.
