War Losers Are Criminals – Military Leadership and Something to Think About

By | 3 August 2017

What number of wars have been fought over totally different beliefs and religions? I have been alive for lower than 50 years and thru the span of historical past this can be a very small quantity time however but I seen sure patterns by learning historical past and being a part of it.

Why will we settle for warfare as a necessity or a necessity to amass one thing or instill a sure perception into another person? Is it as a result of we all know, we’re completely proper and we all know for a reality 100% that our way of life is best than theirs? What makes the winner of the warfare proper and the looser fallacious?

I used to be watching a film that Robert McNamara made referred to as The Fog of Struggle: Eleven Classes from the Lifetime of Robert S. McNamara. I by no means actually put two and two collectively however he talked about one thing within the film that obtained me considering. His superior officer talked about to him someday,” You Do Notice Robert, If We Lose the Struggle, We Are Going to Be Tried As Struggle Criminals.”

I by no means actually thought that simply because we have been proper they usually have been fallacious, our navy leaders might be executed. However have been proper aren’t we and their fallacious, is not this why we have been combating World Struggle II. The Germans and Japanese have been fallacious in doing horrible issues. We tried their navy leaders and located them responsible. After they misplaced the warfare after all.

I suppose after I was a child enjoying baseball and my coach informed me “That the winner takes all.” This additionally applies to actual life, warfare, beliefs, society and what have been pressured to perception. Should you examine the wars all through historical past, you’ll discover that many of the profitable sides acquired advantages from the losers and typically even property. Is smart does not it, winner takes all.

Shedding a warfare does not make you a prison, for those who’re skilled as a superior chief, does not this contain killing individuals or are there particular pointers that navy leaders ought to observe. Are there particular guidelines and did the Individuals and English observe these guidelines throughout World Struggle II. Generally we have to examine management books to realize information and expertise to develop into a greater chief.

The idea of making warfare criminals as a result of they’ve killed others in the course of the warfare, will in all probability by no means make sense to me. Struggle is a horrible and merciless factor to bestowed on any nation and with it comes many acts of horror, it is warfare and there is just one goal and that is to win, in any respect prices. If have been going to place the dropping aspect on trial, should not we additionally discover out extra concerning the crimes the profitable aspect dedicated in the course of the warfare.
