In the modernized warfare, all the forces are being integrated to win the war. victories in any war can no longer be achieved merely by a variable or two. There are certain types of variables that are defined as archetypical tangible elements such as the national leader’s leadership, military power, economic power, reserve forces, and mobilization capabilities, etc. In addition to those tangible elements, there are intangible elements -- such as politics, science, technology, and social cultures -- these are also considered as the vital variables that would determine victory in war. Another factor that would determine the result of war is recognizing the importance of the “will of the people,” which is another type of intangible element.
War causes significant damages to the people directly involved in it, and the damages are catastrophic. For instance, many people will nearly starve to death, and vast majority of people will lose their shelters because their houses will be destroyed. Moreover, heating system will fail to keep people warm. While there will be numerous displaced civilians, blackouts and lack of water supply will cause a great difficulties to the people.
The government will increase taxes, and issue war bonds to provide funding during the war. Many men will be conscripted to fight the war, and women, on the other hand, will be sent off to the factories to manufacture weapons and ammunition.
In the mix of helter-skelter, some nation have overcame its suffering and achieved victory. While other nations could not overcome the suffering from war, and thus conducted anti-government activities that led to losing the war.
If war breaks out in the Korean peninsula, it is no doubt that the war will cause national calamities. Whatever the cause, the war must be avoided. It is vital to achieve victory if war breaks out. In order to achieve such a task, the citizens will have no choice but to serve in the military with various military tasks assigned to them, while they limit the citizen’s right. Hence, throughout this process of fighting the war, the result of war will be significantly determined by the will of Korean people.
As a conclusion, it is exigent to argue that the citizens must show their determination to win victory in war, and the government must use any necessary means to support the citizens so that they can fight for victory.
