If your family is killed in a war, does it really matter if they were killed with spears or with a nuclear bomb?  If your town is destroyed, does it really matter if it was burned by Mongol raiders or flattened by supersonic bombers?

War is death.  War is destruction.  War is loss and suffering and pain.  War is severed dreams and the work of generations laid waste in an instant.  that is as true today as it was the first time two bands of hunter gatherers came to blows over a hunting kill.

Like I said, the difference is the scale.  At the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, 6,000 - 9,000 English troops met 12,000 - 36,000 French and 7,000 - 10,000 died.  At the Battle of Kursk in 1943, 940,900 Germans faced 2,500,000 Soviets, and something like 450,000 died.  Even nuclear weapons (although admittedly they suck for the vultures) are mainly a question of scale.  A thousand conventional bombs can destroy a city.  A thousand fusion bombs can destroy the world.
