As long as nobody gets seriously injured, and as long as it's not done out of anger or contempt, I see few things wrong with fighting.
I think the best way I could put it is that in a civilized society, there should be no need for soldiers, and there should be no politicians to force them into situations where they must kill.

We need suffering in the world. Without suffering, we have no comparison to know that we are happy. In order to appreciate something (life, happiness, good health), we must have a recent memory of the way our lives were without those things.
