Well I believe a country should only declare war against another country if they had attacked them first. The victor should be able to give a fair trial to the former leaders of that country and pass a sentence for the crimes they have committed. The public are innocent and the country that has won should not put them under any military oppression nor force their own ideology upon the public. The country that has won the war should remove any reasonable possible forms of threat within the country and establish a new government. A government that is elected by the people.
That is my opinion on the matter. I know it is not applicable to all circumstances however I strongly believe civilians should not be mistreated during and after the war. They should be given rights and not be put under any form of military oppression.
As for the Palestine and Israel conflict I believe the first step is to give Palestinian citizens rights and not be put under any form of military oppression. Jews, Muslims and Christians in the past did live peacefully in Palestine. After the Holocaust, the Zionist regime used the holocaust as an excuse to take Palestine. They are the cause for this conflict. That was not needed. In Iran, Jews are a minority and President Ahamainjead has given them rights and the Jews have their own representative in the law making system and how the country is governed. This can work in Palestine as well, were Jews and Muslim can live together. So there is no need for a two states. One state where both Jews and Muslims have equal share in power and all the citizens have equal rights.
