Uh, more wars have been fought in the name of God than for any other cause. And the reason those countries are eternally messed up because of the wars they've fought in the name of God and because of how tightly God is tied to Government.

It's a shame, but it's a fact.
As for war, well, the war was brought to us, not the other way around. Remember that. And if you have your intelligence agency, Britian's intelligence agency, and the "President" of Russia all telling you that Iraq has WMDs (which btw they have used in the past and not accounted for), you don't screw around. You don't screw around with millions of lives at stake and listen to a group of talkers (i.e. France, Germany, U.N. as a whole) who you know are in league with the very administration who is threatening you. The fact is, Iraq had WMDs, they hid them or worse sold them, they couldn't account for them and now neither can we. We just don't know why. Worst case scenario.. they were sold to terrorists. Maybe not Al Queda, but some group. Personally, I think Saddam was making it seem like he had WMD's when he actually didn't so that neighboring countries wouldn't attack, but that's another story.
Okay, feel free to comment or not. Sorry to go on such a tirade. I just get worked up about these things...
