While reading the news today I had an epiphany. In pretty much every part of the world, other then the developed world, massive conflicts and nasty situations are going on everywhere, yet in the first world, were untouched by it.

Off the top of my head I could think of ongoing "strife" in Iraq, Israel/Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Bangladesh, Madagascar, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Sudan/Darfur, D.R. Congo, Guinea-Bissau, Western Sahara, The Caucasus, Mexico and Colombia over the last week alone.

This is probably just scratching the surface, not even getting on to such issues of human rights, etc. . So pit lets discuss other countries problems!

People get on the case of organized militaries when the reality most wars are fought by civilian armies. Its the countries with strong organized millitaries that are less likely to cause trouble.

you have to look at religion my maths tutor says. "the country that has the most people beliveing in god is nigeria. the most violent country to be in is nigeria." see a pattern here? it was something like that anyway...dont ask why my maths tutor was saying that in a maths lesson. we got a bit distracted lol

EDIT: to strat-o-sphere:

thats a good point. doesnt really follow what our theory was ( me and maths tutor) but it has still got to do with belief. the BELIEF of not splitting the country up and not havin it run by the UK and such

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

Well, despite me liking the anti-religious post America has something like 85% (that statistic may not be correct) theists, so I dunno

I think one cant be that simplistic. Theres no religious conflict in Mexico, its drug dealers vs. everyone else. Still thousands are dying in Mexico. And theres a lot worse places to be than nigeria...

As for strong militaries not causing trouble, in loads of countries they cause the problems by removing democratically elected governments and implementing violent dictatorships.

One can not group things together like that, every country has its own issues which result in strife. Theres no models for this type of thing.

True, people should only speak about religion on a thread like this if its to do with the countries actual problems. Although it will come up considering it has caused lots of problems, the catholic church in places in africa telling people condoms are evil for instance..

Erm, correct me if I'm wrong but less people have been killed lately than I have fingers on my hand. Its still not good I know, but no need to sensationalise.

Almost all wars have something to do with religion


Yeah... well no, not really.

The leaders of almost all wars use religion as an excuse for their political and imperialist goals... Religion is never really the main drive of the people who run these wars... They just use it to gain support of a certain target group.
