    • i love that most here object to holy or race wars but no one seems to think fighting over long dead tree juice is 'dumb'

  • There has not been one war that hasn't been fought for idiotic reasons. Far better diplomacy is what this world needs tbh.

  • Your not going back far enough in history. No such thing as a religious war but there is such thing as people hiding behing religion to push their agenda. So war in general is stupid but i do have to say if we go to war now it wouldn't be stupid at all.

  • I think virtually ALL WARs. It's just senseless loss of lives. But it was inevitable because humanity has the nature to destroy themselves. Inevitable that there are always oppressors and deceivers and hypocrites.

    Also it's because I think that "War Is a Racket". Either way history repeats itself, and because of "If you want peace, prepare for War". It's impossible for humans to stop fighting among themselves, for "as long as there are people, there will ALWAYS be War".

  • The deep reason for a war is always economic. Money, riches, trade, control of the natural sources of the countries attacked. Or stopping a third country from getting these.

    Religion, ideology, nationalism, patriotism, ethnic oppositions are only means to persuade the cannon fodder to die eventually.

  • All wars are in one way or another fought over resources - be it territory, labor, wealth, influence or some other valuable commodity. You've listed excuses, not reasons.

  • I cannot limit my response to just one of these kinds of wars. The three wars that I find to be the most idiotic come in this order from 3 to 1. (3) Ethnic Wars, (2) Colonial Wars, (1) Religious Wars. The only reason I did not include Ideological Wars is because of the Korean War. Had we not fought against the North, then South Korea would not be on the map. Instead we would have one big Stalinist Korean Peninsula forced under the ideology of Juche (Self-reliance) which cuts off nearly all outside trade and ties with the outside world.

  • It's a trick question.

    They're almost all fought over which groups have what resources.

    The rest is just window dressing to inspire the cannon fodder.
