Was the Vietnam War caused by religion?
Was the 1st or 2nd Gulf War caused by religion?
Was WWI or WWII caused by religion?
The examples can go on. "All" is an absolute and leaves no room for error, unless of course, one uses it improperly.
WWI-caused by religion-if there was no religious dissent between austria hungary and the slavs then there would have been no catalyst for wwI.
The reason our troops are still in the gulf region-sunni and shiite conflict.
Religion is everywhere in war. If you look at it hard enough theres always some kind of religious conflict that drives or starts war.
