Just thinking about the rather hypothetical NK vs France thread. Ok let's take the 20th and 21st century and the Western involved wars of this period, have most of the offensive wars actually achieved a victory? Or have most of them been a waste of manpower and resources ultimately. Let's debate the pros and cons of invasive war. Is it becoming redundant due to the technology and tactics of modern warfare, or is it still a viable way to enforce your will on a country? After all people don't meet on the battlefield slay one side and then reep the spoils of war from a country as they did in the past. I'll say no for the sake of debate, I have yet to see an offensive large scale war achieve anything in the long run in this period, so it begs the question have we learnt our lesson yet or is there one to be learned? It's not a simple issue, and it's not a simple answer yay or nay, but what do you think?
