Bible makes it quite clear. War is reserved for only the most evil people, whose removal can only be done through massive damage and assault. God did order the slaughter of entire civilian populations. But history tells us why. The region was full of pirates, barbarians, rapists, and horrible people. So evil that not even the concept of "innocents" existed. For such a culture of death, the season is that of death. To kill all and remove them from the face of the Earth, least weak minds be carried along with them.
For me, it's just another example of a sane God who allows his people to manage their own kingdom rather than go in and run everything.

A sad irony here is in Christianity, or in the very least Catholicism, suicide is a sin, and one who commits it will never reach heaven.
This is one aspect of the catholic church I despise. One is suffering so badly that they see suicide as the only way out, and what do they receive after? Eternal damnation. That is not a just God.
