War is referred to as the state of the society whereby people are in a conflict characterized by the use of weapons, aggression, and destruction of property, and loss of lives. A conflict is a prolonged fight or battle between two or more parties, where people live in constant fear of attack by enemies. A country that is undergoing war concentrates on the wrangles instead of developments.
An armed conflict can contribute to a depreciating economy and distraction in infrastructure. The results will even be severe in areas where the war is intense. Both individuals and companies suffer. The companies have their technology, capital, and even their workers who got the best skills to die in the war. This will directly negatively affect the company once the war is over. Investors would never invest their money in countries enraged with war. The economy of the country thus drops drastically. The cost of living of the citizens rises, poverty strikes, and health is affected. The illiteracy level also rises since education is disrupted during war leading to school dropouts, or even the schools may be burned down during the war. Civil wars are very costly, and the government will have to invest in buying weapons and military expenses. Infrastructure is, therefore, neglected.
However, developed countries do not experience war because their economy is stable, and they will spend most of their energy and resources improving their economy. These countries are politically stable and do not entertain tribal conflicts and all treated as equals.
Countries should strive to have peace since it is the source of development. Peace of mind creates healthy thinking, therefore, a strong country.
