    The underlying cause of war is greed . Nations embark on war for two main reasons 1 ) to acquire and secure markets for the benefit of their Industrial/financial complex , like the German invasion of Russia in 1941 , 2 ) to secure a strategic advantage so as to protect the sovereignty of their Industrial/financial complex from other rivals , like the current US invasion of Iraq . To secure public approval for an invasion , the Establishment of the aggressor nation , embarks on a campaign exploiting the differences of their intended victim in Religion , Race , Nationality ,or Political System giving this as the reason for the Invasion . Once the aggressor nation has invaded and occupied the victim nation , the conquering nation exploits rival differences in that nation , like the European nations in Africa exploiting trbal differences . Or like in Catholic Ireland actually creating the problem by settling large numbers of Protestant British Immigrants , or South Africa implanting a White minority into the Black majority in other words creating a ' DIVIDE AND CONQUER ' situation . Only one conflict has it source in religion that is Israel , this nation was soley founded on the religious belief that God promised this land and that the Jews shall return , in 1896 modern Zionism was born and was realized in 1948
