Yes, it has always been with us because, to paraphrase Voltaire, man always repeats himself. The causes of War have generally been viewed as economic, albeit cloaked in high-minded principles such as religion, nationalism, righteousness, even a man’s ear.
This thread is for discussion of War. To limit it somewhat, wars previous to the Hundred Years’ War (1337-1453) will not be discussed here.

Recognizing that some discussion may be heated, the moderator retains the right to ban some posters, although she hopes she need not.
