      well at times they do and at times they dont...historically most political leaders believed that god was with them in their fight...those who won the war , their belief got more stronger...there is no consensus for god at global level...they are many gods ...and unfortunately people think that their version is only right version and others are believing in false god ...in old times these too became reason for attacking others...all in name of god who is said to be all about love , merciful and forgiving...in today's world religion too is seeing down stream of its own kind...it is gradual but it is too evolving...world is getting global and definition of life too is changing...m sure with time and more interaction , wars would take back seat ...

        At least half don't. That would be evident by the perpetrator. But how many people really believe in God? In America we elect lawyers, who's job is to get around laws, to our highest offices. Our lawyers cannot run a court system so Americans elect them to ruin our country. And of course the clients for lawyers is the rich. America's justice system requires you make a lot of money to afford lawyers. Therefore we have that trickle down thing where you have to make a lot of money to be healthy. Of course many times, to be able to afford health-care later, we have to ruin our health now. But it's all a giant pyramid scheme. Most wars are about resources. The Rothschilds (financed both sides of most wars since America's Civil War) and others with businessmen, can finance and equip either or both sides of the war. But these wars are for businessmen mostly. But the poor people who actually fight them are young, patriotic and their parents are too fascist to oppose governments of the rich and business. Meanwhile, attempts for better means of energy and efficiency, especially for the long run, are squashed.  I could go on but- every religion has a form of the Golden Rule. If nations and the religious really were on God's side- they would adhere to it. And for leaders who obviously break that rule, the punishment should fit the crime. But here in America the evil doer may just get a helicopter ride home. Perhaps an airplane ride in the Airforce One. But that's how we are in the land of the free. By the way - somebody really missed the nick-name for America. It should be "home of the most imprisoned" because America is number one in imprisoning its people. But again, they're lawyers, so we elect them to our highest office and they in turn sell our children to another war. But Harvard and Yale are doing very well.

    What difference would it matter if political leaders believed in a god or not, when they start/begin wars?

    I'd be afraid of the ones who do more so than the ones who do not.
