There is no single, all-inclusive answer as to why nations war with each other. We cannot even say that the participants always seek "advantage", which seems almost a no-brainer. The United States, for example, did not begin participation in the Second World War out of an intended "advantage", but rather to stop the disadvantage that would result from not fighting the Japanese. The U.S. would (1941-1945) expend a lot

Man is a social animal.  War is simply organized, socialized violence.  Violence is a basic tool of every beast, however simple or sophisticated, because violence is a very successful behavior.  Asking why we engage in mass violence against one another is like asking why we breathe, or eat, or reproduce.  

The question has spawned an entire field of political science called "conflict studies".

It usually starts off with a very aggressive act from a country that provokes the recipient country to declare war on the country for national security reasons.  That is the most basic explanation.

Money,

War is all about money, generally, when the markets are flat, war increases the demand for natural resources and creates jobs.

Bring Money into the Country.

Hi, because unfortunately, shouting doesn't have the same effect.  I hate the fact that our soldiers are sent to other country's to fight their wars (that will only happen again and again when the soldiers leave!) just to get killed.  My heart is 100% with all the soldier's families, God bless you all. Lots of love and hugs Hayley-May
