the answer is yes... it is good... and yes it is bad.
War to stop hitler... he needed to be stopped I do not think anyone disagrees with that.. or napoleon.. or the greeks fighting Xerses to remain free, Heck I even think killing sadaam was the right thing to do, just 30 years later than it should have been.
BUT... there is no way to wage war and not kill innocents, war is a brutal thing to go through that will damage the participants for the rest of their lives, when you figure in things like radioactive fallout from the bomb, or the depleted uranium rounds for the A-10... people that were not even in the war can be damaged by the fallout from it.
Also lets not forget the mines that are still scattered all over the world, maiming and killing years after the conflict ended.
So in short... Yes to both.
