So now, when someone searches for war, they go straight to an Anti-war quotes page? That doesn't seem sensible. DrSandstone 16:04, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Well, that was the case before the edit, too. The page move makes sense since the content was just a bunch of anti-war quotes. The War page isn't locked, so anybody can create a serious entry about it by editing the page at [1] --Sid 3050 16:08, 29 March 2007 (EDT)
Alright, well I'm going to add a simple definition so that it at least doesn't redirect to anti-war quotes. DrSandstone 16:10, 29 March 2007 (EDT)
You could add several links to existing articles on specific wars, too. MountainDew 16:12, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

The only external link is something called "what liberals say about war?"Jros83 20:19, 24 August 2008 (EDT)

re: Wars, USA and Russia

I looked at this and it doesn't appear to be correct or a good fit.

Three things:

1. There is a difference between using military force and a full-blown war. And the footnote doesn't appear to be saying the USA has been in 200 full-blown wars since the Cold War.

2. None of the military actions the USA has been involved in post COld War with has had to do with "Holy wars". They were not holy wars. The same applies to Russia. So it's not in the right section. And neither Russia or the USA are considered to be irreligious/nonreligious. Both countries have some degree or religiousness (Number of churches, etc.).

3. I am looking at List of wars involving Russia and from 1991 to present, Russia appears to have been in 10+ wars.


Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has been involved in over 200 wars;[1] the Russian Federation has been involved in 4.
How many countries has North Korea invaded since 1950? RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 14:55, February 21, 2024 (EST)
I just used North Korea because an armistice has never been signed and they are a pretty hostile country. I will just get rid of the current graphic and use something related to Islam. Conservative (talk) 14:59, February 21, 2024 (EST)
Oh, you don't have to explain. I think I understand full well why you used North Korea. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 15:09, February 21, 2024 (EST)
The United States has invaded (i.e., violated the sovereign territorial integrity of) 160 countries in 215 instances since 1991.
As to your point 2 about Holy wars, that's interesting, but it's not the main subject of this article (perhaps it belongs in your religious wars article). And whether America's 20 year war on the Islamic faith in Afghanistan, to turn the country into a bunch of Westernized sodomites, is debatable.

I do think the USA has been sticking its nose into too many things in the world, but the section has to do with the causal factor of wars. The USA has gotten into various wars throughout its history, but I don't believe any of them were "holy wars". But there was some irreligion/religion aspect to the USA/West vs. the former Soviet Union as far as the Cold War, but it doesn't seem to be a religion vs. irreligion war or a holy war and instead a major power conflict in general.
Anyways, it seems as if we came to some agreement concerning this section. Conservative (talk) 15:27, February 21, 2024 (EST)
