Do you agree that territorial tussles between countries could lead to wars?
Since territory is the sphere of the country's supremacy and dominance, most countries would probably not give in to territorial demands.
Where ego is involved, conflict will always occur. Territory is part of ego.
Where a conflict persists, there you will find an undisclosed third party fanning the flames of discontent.
Definitely, wars have been started throughout history for this exact reason.
It's hard not to think, with few exceptions, that all wars are about territory, regardless of what philosophy appears to drive them. What else can war really achieve than to create territory that's favorable or deprive it from an enemy? War doesn't win hearts and minds, it can only render control of ground. What the victor does with that ground is a different issue.
This is an excellent question and the world needs to reflect on this significantly. Absolutely and it is important to understand that sometimes it is indeed the cause of conflict; yet, sometimes it has been the excuse for conflict (i.e. Hitler and Nazi Germany invading Poland).
It's as old as time; wars have been most often fought over territory as anyone who studies history would know. If world leaders actually learned from history there wouldn't be wars.
