    Yeah exactly. It's not like anyone wakes up and goes, "I think I'll have a war today." It's a last measure.

    The application of sentiment on the impact of war does nothing to describe the essential motivations for it.
    I do not believe my neighbors share it, only that they should. And, still it surprises me everytime. We are beasts in that we are able to justify that which we cannot comprehend.

    I doubt men of war are motivated by anything philosophical. I'll take dominance for $1000, Alex.

    greed, envy, hate, lust, power? etc etc
    It's a combination of fear and lust for power. It's mostly lust for power among people calling the shots and fear among the people who actually have to do the fighting.

    Exactly. War has always been around and has always been an effective method to preserve interests. Is it the best method? Most certainly not. Does it give way to a mass of other problems? Certainly. Since the birth of civilization, people have lived by the sword. I guess its an act of desparation, either an inability to plan a better method or a fear that there isn't one and either party is going to be crushed if they don't act. Act or react if you will because people will always feel entitlement towards something.
