Democracy against USA Attack

I was talking with my friend with political science and international relations background about democracy and wars. We discussed how there has been no major war between two democracies in the history. We realized that Pakistan and India fought in Kargil in 1998 while being democracies, but that can be viewed as a mis-adventure of Pakistan military.

In the end, we agreed that democracy is good for avoiding wars among nations. If two countries want to avoid a war between themselves, then they should strengthen democracy in themselves.

Later I thought about the attacks of USA and UK on Iraq, French wars in Africa, Israel engagement with Arabs, democratic India’s wars with Pakistan. In the meantime, the Vietnam war in which USA was the bad guy.

I think democracy is necessary in a country to be safe from a democratic country, but if a country has democracy then it is not necessary that it will never attack another weaker country with the wrong objectives. Just like democratic USA and democratic UK attacked Iraq, and democratic USA had destroyed Vietnam.
