It depends on the war. If it is a war of expansion, the aggressor wins if they take the land, the defender wins if they hold it. If it is a war for resources, the one left holding it wins. If it is an ideological war, it is almost impossible to win. If it is a civil war, the government may change but no one really wins. If it is a war by proxy, the powers behind it might win but the combatants both lose.
The propaganda at the time was about stopping the Nazi threat, not about genocide.
People did go to war over genocide.
Have you ever gone to war?
no one went to war to stop genocide. that isn't what the war was about. in retrospect we say that's what it was about because we know more than they did at the time. they were fighting over imperialism.
How is stopping genocide a bad example?
the world wars are bad examples. none of the original belligerents really won. they were all crippled and bombed out. America was the real winner since their economy was booming.
Yes, sometimes you must go to war to settle differences. I.e WWII or the Revolutionary War (Speaking in more modern times)
look at the wars Rome fought. they established a massive empire and spread their language and culture across Europe. they clearly won alot. so yes, it certainly is possible to be victorious in war.
keeping in mind deaths of innocent people and warriors. destruction of cities and towns. this victory may be called as phyrric victory which is not truely victorious.
