|Mankind is digging it's own grave|
Typically a war is fought by a country, or group of countries, against an opposing country with the aim of achieving an objective through the use of force.
Wars can also be fought as Proxy Wars, or within a country, however, in the form of a civil war, or in a revolutionary war.
Of course, the causes of a war beginning are often numerous and several reasons for war can be intertwined in a complicated way, rather than there being just one single, clear cause. The ego's of some world leaders can also play an important part.
Many theories have been put forward over the years for why wars happen and some of the greatest minds have offered their ideas.
The main reasons why wars usually start were given as being the result of: Nationalism, Religion, Revenge, Economic and Territorial gain
This phenomena unfortunately begins already at a very basic local level, were most people in the world still show to have a very nationalistic, tribal, territorial viewpoint, specially when it comes to how they identify themselves.
When a Dutchman visit another country, he or she will usually identify herself or himself as " I am Peter/Anna and I am from Holland".
This goes for just about any nationality visiting another country.
Maybe it would be better, if we all would adhere to what one wise man once said: "the world is mine and wherever I can live in peace and harmony I will call home.
Yes indeed aren't we all citizens of this planet we call earth, regardless of were we were born or what religion we profess?.
At least if we could all agree on that, it would be far easier to deal with all those other causes of war
