War is a state of violent, large-scale conflict involving two or more groups of people.
The factors leading to war are often complicated and due to a range of issues. Where disputes arise over issues such as territory, sovereignty, resource, or ideology, and if a peaceable resolution fails, is not sought, or is thwarted, war often results.

This in turn creates jobs and increases peoples’ income, thus generating economic growth. So in the short run wars and oil spills are good for economic growth in the same way as investing in your child’s education or in expanding your business — jobs are created and incomes increase.
In the long run, however, the outlook is not so promising. Dollar for dollar military spending creates fewer jobs than spending in civilian programs. It is estimated, for example, that $10 billion spent on weapons systems generates 40,000 fewer jobs than $10 billion spent on civilian …show more content…

Pre-war speculation (often exaggerated) here yields to post-war realities. Though Saddam Hussein did not use weapons of mass destruction nor set fire to Iraq's oil fields nor attack Israel with rockets, and though the conflict was relatively short, the war has had many serious results ranging from death and destruction in Iraq to regional instability to a weakened world economy.
With close to 4 million displaced people in and outside of Iraq, an average of about 100 people killed daily, and a third of the population living in poverty, Iraq 's humanitarian emergency has reached a crisis level that compares with some of the world's most urgent
