    decentralized activity which is coordinated properly can produce best results as targeted.it should be viewed as a football team playing in the court.if each member feels to shoot the goal individually himself and the efforts are diversified unilaterally ,we could imagine the results. the same thing is happening in the case of centralized organizations.if all the members are submissive to the leading man certain results can be achieved,but it never equals to the team work of a planned and motivated decentralized force.more brains can think better together if motivated and guided properly in any function.

    The War-machine is expensive to operate... Manufacturers who supply the hardware (trucks, tanks, weapons, ammo, etc) see many advantages to a war...There's also the other support-services, like fuel, food, etc. Wars are rarely conducted for humanitarian purposes...there's almost always an economic prize on the horizon; Controlling someone's oil supplies, opening new markets for American businesses, etc. The disadvantages start with the same first line...the war-machine is expensive to run. The toll in human life is immeasurable to most of us, but someone in the decision-making system has managed to put a price on it.
