The article focuses on the advantages brought by a war. According to Theodore Roosevelt, a war is a way for invigorating nations and soldiers who engages in it and added that it keeps a nation from getting soft. One of the concepts of war is that it is something that has been there for a long time and that people can do nothing about it, which the author says show two difficulties including being associated with long-running histories, and the lack of response even if nothing can be done. According to the author, viewing war as the only solution to maintain peace is a dangerous belief that people might be always be preparing for war rather than peace.
