What's the most pointless war in recent history?


All of them. ✌

China knows what they are doing.




They all have their points


Yes. Selling weapons and paving the way for American imperialism, amazing…


>puts china on both sides
>doesn't put the usa on both sides
What did they mean by this?


how modern are we talking? what does "pointless" entail, a bunk causus belli, or simply unnecessary loss of life?
>The war, lasting less than three-quarters of an hour, is considered the shortest in recorded history.[58] Several durations are given by sources, including 38,[1][59] 40[60] and 45[61] minutes, but the 38-minute duration is the most often quoted.


A war where both sides failed to accomplish anything, leading to a waste of money, ammunition and human life
Recent history as in from the Cold War and onwards

Iran-Iraq war.

Also, check'd.


No necessarily wars, but the battles of the Isonzo river lmao



Is the man on the right wearing Chucks?


Lot of people in the Iran-Iraq war were irregulars who didn't always have full uniform.

Yep, there it is, the 8 year bloody war that pretty much defined my country and solidified the new governments rule, and by extension Khomeini's

Though currently looking at wikipedia now, it doesn't list China as one of the belligerents, which is correct since China never actually engaged in combat


This is actually the first time I even learn China had anything to do with Iran-Iraq war

Kinda ironic how our government is seeking help from people that also helped our enemy


Not true, the Iran-Iraq war was instrumental in solidifying the Iranian government's power and influence for decades to come

The Iran-Iraq war gained religious significance because of the concept of marty-ism in Shia Islam, So it became a religious war from the get go.
Even the names reflect it, "دفاع مقدس" ( religious defense ) .


Also I kinda fucked up the translation there, its better to translate it as "The Holy Defense"

A little bit of context as to why the Iran-Iraq war gained religious importance, and thus drove thousands of people to the frontlines to be butchered:

In Shia Islam, a "martyr" is someone who dies for god, whether that would be dying fighting enemies of Islam or during any kind of religious duty.

Being a martyr is the highest and most noble form of death you can achieve, with all of your sins forgiven and going to heaven

So it doesn't matter whether you're a rapist, serial killer or a pedophile, if you become a martyr, you're getting a first class ticket to heaven with your sins now completely forgiven as if you've done nothing wrong in this world.



Are you Iranian?



The nigerian civil war. Completely stupid, both sides were not even military but glorified cops for different oil tycoons.
