What are some wars really about? We know that some are for freedom, some are from revenge, and some are for…money. It’s called “killing for profit”. George Washignton and his army of men, defeated the Hessions while in the Battle of Trenton. The Hession Commander wished to speak to George Washington before he died right after the fight, but he refused. He said, “Do you want me to weep men who die for profit?”. He changed his decision after General Greene told him that if you think about it, fighting against Britsh Taxation was also considered fighting for profit. In my opinion, I think that it’s okay to kill for profit, but only in some cases. For example, the Americans were fighting against taxes from the British because they couldn’t afford a lot in their own country, and as for the Hessions, well, they were just hired to fight against America while getting paid to do it! Do you see what I mean? So in the case of the Battle of Trenton, I think the Americans had the Right to fight because they actually had a reason! A time I made a decision, but for the wrong reason was when I decided to join the track team. I decided to join it because I just wanted to be apart of a team sport, and had no interest in running, but in the end I really did like it!
