Thinking about terrorism torture and war
How does war differ from terrorism?
War and terrorism are two different contexts. Terrorism is someone when creates fear in other or inflict harm on innocent people who don’t deserve to be hurt. It is a common belief that it is politically motivated activity but according to the example of the school shooting in our course points that this not the case.
War is considered as lawful forces which beneficial for a nation or country even though there is the cost of lives. War is also very violent and hostile, but it is used by countries to defend the lives, honor, and liberty of the country.
Is one man’s terrorist another man’s freedom fighter?
This might be the possibility, but according to my opinion and thoughts freedom fighter is a misguided person who does not understand the beliefs of opposition and does not know that violence and murder is not the solution to the problems they are facing
What would make a war the just war? And can it be waged morally?
War becomes “just war” when one is fighting for the defense of self, nation or country or war is just war when someone is fighting against terrorism, but there needs to be a cause for a war to declare it waged morally. Ware for personal benefit is unethical.
Can torture ever be used morally, or is it always wrong? Even if wrong, can it be forgivable?
According to my opinion torture is a bad thing to do and matters should be solved without the usage of violence and torture is violence is not the answer to everything, but it can be morally used when it is a matter of a nation, and it will help in self-defense.
