[quote=coolaid;2075820]what am i suppose to argue against?[/quote]There is always something to argue about, when the rights and wrongs of war are concerned. We have one going on right now, for which religious conviction is involved and I bet most of the pro’s and con’s haven’t exactly changed much since the Thirty Years War; so why not try and translate the current justifications across and back into the historical context?
Overall though, this looks like what we call a ‘Barrister Question’. Imagine you are a barrister and have been asked to defend one of the sides in court. What would your arguments be for their justification? Do some reading around on their circumstances, make bullet points and then expand these into text. Then, wipe all those arguments from your mind and the next day (or week) do the same for the other side. Finally pretend you are the judge who has to summarise it all, and give [I][B]your own[/B][/I] conclusion, citing the reasons. Remember there are no right or wrong answers, only logical ones based on your impression of hearing both sides, and you don’t have to agree with anyone.
It’s all part of training you to think for yourself, rather than just re-word someone else’s opinion.
