The wars of Ancient Rome, the fire and sword of Islam, the Crusades, the Reconquista and the Inquisition .... Judean Wars and the War of Independence of the State of Israel ....
War is one of human inventions. Throughout the whole history, wars accompanied and continue to accompany people. Do aggression and selfishness or patriotism and lofty ideals cause that?
