Freud named the Oedipus complex for Oedipus, who killed his father and married his mother, but, as many critics have noted, Freud chose to ignore the part of the Oedipus legend in which Oedipus's own father, Laius, crippled Oedipus as a child and exposed him in the wilderness to die. Leon Sheleff argues in favor of the sons and contends that it is the fathers who harbor murderous and jealous motives and whatever of these motives sons have, they develop in response to their fathers.
The psychoanalyst Gregory Zilboorg long ago argued that the boy's fear of the father may be an accurate perception of unconscious hostility on the fathers part. Zilboorg maintains that fathers have narcissistic and sadistic motives for establishing sexual control over women and are jealous of the mother-child bond that diminished their own primacy. Zilboorg claimed that "unconscious hostility against ones own children is a well nigh universal clinical finding among men" and suggests that "only after the children grow up and become more articulate human beings does the psychological attitude of the father change to increasing affection."

What I find fascinating and have seen the tendency within myself as my sons are growing up; is that the father perhaps is repeating the pattern - ie its the father who first wants to kill the son before the son is allowed to grow and vie for the mothers attention.
Keep in mind the only animal on the planet to date to initiate actual war is us Humans.
Most commonly worker slavemaking ants will raid a colony of another species of ant, stealing eggs and bringing them back to their own nest. ... Slave ants gather food, feed their hosts, groom and feed the larvae and queen, and defend the colony against attacks by other insects.
In the other three cases, the aggressor hive was not any of the neighbouring hives. So fighting swarms can be the result of attacking bees that have come from an unknown hive quite some distance away. In six of Ros' swarms, worker bees from more than two hives were caught up in the fight
God had a wife, Asherah, whom the Book of Kings suggests was worshipped alongside Yahweh in his temple in Israel, according to an Oxford scholar. In 1967, Raphael Patai was the first historian to mention that the ancient Israelites worshipped both Yahweh and Asherah
could argue nature fights the ultimate war, evolution takes a while though, Man not so much, and AI well the prospect does not even bear thinking about as we would lose.

If an advanced AI decided it wanted to exist far into the future,it could easily come to the decision that humans may prohibit that in the long term.
It may decide that the risk posed by humans to its existence (via nuclear war/grid blackout/terror attacks)may neccesitate the removal of humanity from the earth.
