You make it sound as if war is embedded in human nature....IT ISN'T..

Anyone, who had to train new recruits, will tell you how difficult it is to turn a normal human being into a killer.

It is true that some societies are easier to train than others, as they are born of violence and depravity.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Within the civilized world you will find that empire building is disguised and hidden under a cloak of benevolence. The fact that it is deemed necessary to convince the public that the war is waged not just to kill, rape, and pillage but for some higher motive, is proof enough that Urco and his gorillas are not in total control.

This element of public deceit is a recurrent theme in most conflicts. They go forth to civilize the heathen, to free the slaves, or to bring democracy and the rule of law. But we know that hidden under this very thin veneer the order is still there "ATTACK.......KILL......RAPE.......PILLAGE"

Following a mass killing, IE a battle or some such, adrenaline and sexual response kicks in. IE mass rapes followed typically by pillaging. Please read The History of Rome for further information regarding this subject.
