Has war ever "worked"?

Garry, you ask if war has ever worked. Did wars ever solve any problem?

I believe they did; ….Many and very threatening problems. One of the best examples is WWII. Unless the Allied Forces victory in WWII, to day there wouldn't be a Free World left to be worried about. Perhaps the Nazis would be still fighting their previous Japanese and Islamic allies in a hopeless world, ruled by dark totalitarian dictatorships of the kind we have in North Korea and in most of the Arab/Islamic countries.

And if you ask me, today the free world is facing the same kind of threats (and perhaps much worse) as it was on the eve of WWII.
