Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

I guess , it require 2 parties to start a war.Like one to attack another one and cause the other side to exercise revenge and such and it will continues to out whole generations to come.I wonder if religion is removed ,will it reduce wars also ? i don't think so , because then it will be etnic cleansing , when one race will eradicate another race.Or civil war to wrestle land and power.What do your think?

I wonder if you had actually ignored that the recent uprising were actually more of pent up issues like being overly suppressed or dictated like Libya. Then, there's the deception and intentional oversight for the recently concluded Gulf War. I think there's something more heinous in wars nowadays, it is not as straightforward as in the past where it was about some lunatic conquest or ethnic cleansing.

Ya , libya , syria , Egypt . People are uprising against tyranny.HOever, the process is long and full of obstacle.Now without a common enemy , they will fight among themselve for the spoil of war. Like libya , can't even form a proper temporary goverment to held an general election. And syria, he basially ask kofi anan go fly kite and the rest.I guess with or without religion , wars will happen because of human nature. I think religion is just another excuse to shot the other guy.

I never think that religions cause wars. I always think that politics is what causing wars. We never hear the term 'classified','top secret'.'intelligent', 'spies','foreign threats' in any religions, we always hear them in a political context. In the surface, religion sometimes used to start a war, but the one who use it are always politician. Even in godless countries, politicians manage to create war.
