Why I chose Anti-war

I decided to do my project on anti-war because we are coming close to repeating history only with more deaths and more destruction due to the advancements in the technology and weaponry we have today. Many people believe that the U.S. should worry about the million of homeless and less fortunate we have here and once we handled the problem here we can move on to other countries and help them gain what they need to in order to be a well functioning country.
