When the next war breaks out it will not be for logical reasons but because human nature is irrational.
Men have repeatedly gone to war for irrational reasons.This includes First World War,Iraq War of 2003 and now the Syrian War.
At a personal level I saw Iraq closely from 1981 as we had a family interest in Iraq and many of my friends served in Iraq.What happened in Iraq from 1980 to 2003 was not logical but it was the reality.The US attack on Iraq may not be morally right but many individuals made big benefits out of it.
Similarly Afghan war is not about Islam but materialism also and by that I maintain , for both sides.Some one is making big money and if most are suffering , this does not affect maiden history.
When the US opens a new front in Asia it may not sound or seem logical but all the same it will happen.
The hierarchy in states consists of MORALLY DUMB BUT OTHERWISE CRAFTY people.
They see in war some personal benefit like a company winning contract or simply blood lust.
When we say this may happen or that may happen , it is not that we want it to happen that way , but we are merely pointing out what may happen based on our knowledge of what has happened in the past.
