Some might have been, but I do not belive WW1 or WW2 was fought over religion, nor Korea, nor Vietmam, so after you take the big ones out. A lot of the middle east wars were fought over oil.
yes the crusades were Catholic against Islam.
yes the Easter Upriseing in Ireland was.
No for WW1
No for WW2
No for Korea
No for Vietnam.
No For 'desert storm'
No for 'desert storm 2;
No for the Americian was of Indpendence, just a disagrement between Americican's and England.
No to the war between the north and the south, again a disagrement, and freeing the slaves.
some of the early wars in Europe might have been, but they will have to be named.
That is what I belive, it is so easy to blame religion, Hitler wanted power and land to feed his army and country. WW1 was such a mix up it is hard to work out who wanted what. Korea was a grap for power, pure and simple. Vietnam was left over from French Indo China, and could not be won, as we were fighting, with one hand tied behind our backs.
Guess not much left to try and blame religion for.
Thats my thinking, anybody disagree, if you do please show me were I was mistaken.
God bless '
P.S. great post Sottway , well done.
