you have no proof that the article is accurate. even if it were, we did not start the war with iraq, we only finished it late. since saddam at least gave lip service to islam and swore to destroy israel and the us, our going back to enforce the cease fire could be called a defensive move against an islamic radical.
So you're saying we should go to war against anyone that preaches Islam? Wait, were you trying to say this wasn't religion based with that arguement? And defending against speech?? Really? That's a sad arguement, even for a republican. :D
hitler and his buddies were heavily into the occult. he may have worshiped a god, but what he called god is in question.
You may not like it, but what he called god is what you call god, he may have been twisted, but he still believed in the christian god.
the peasant war was a popular uprising against the church and the nobility. it had more to do with taxes and land. it certainly was not started because of some christian fervor on the part of the peasants and land owners.
So take it out of the equasion if you want... doesn't matter, I listed far more than just two inside of a 1000 year span... so it doesn't really matter if you want to ignore the religious aspects to that one particular war.
By the way, I believe we were originally just talking about christians who started wars, not necessarily wars for christian reasons, which means the list could be expanded to cover most of the wars in the last 1000 years.
