Wars are started for different reasons which are noble, petty, or aggressive. Fighting for the protection of freedom is noble. Fighting over what the most delicious food is, is petty. Fighting to wipe a nation off the face of the earth is aggressive.
The only instances when war is acceptable are when your security is threatened and when you need protection. Those who fight for the protection of something meaningful to them like freedom are noble and are usually the defenders. The attackers are usually those that are aggressive. If there were less aggressive nations in this world, yes, the world would be much more peaceful.
If one refuses to fight and defend oneself, you give free reign to aggressive nation to be as aggressive as they want to be. Aggressive nations will, sadly, be aggressive until the day that this world is perfect.
Wars should not start over petty things. It's a crime to sacrifice humans’ lives over a petty disagreement.
Most things in this world cannot be black or white, an absolute truth. Most things require sound judgment, and not everyone has that which leads to unnecessary attacks. Does that mean the one being attacked is wrong for defending itself? If it cannot be resolved diplomatically and it's for a noble cause, then war is acceptable and necessary. There is a time to laugh. There is a time to mourn. There is a time for war. There is a time for peace.
Although I disagreed with it, I enjoyed reading your poem. It was organized, well-constructed, terse, and easily comprehendible.

A book you might like to read is called The Search for Delcious. It's a kid's book by Natile Babbit but like The Giver it's so much more than a kid's book. This one states how wars can be fought over silly stupid things like what is the most delcious food in the world. I'm weird so I like it. :)
