hmmm ... so it's never been due to religion? 
I doubt it. But I never said that either.  Islam arose in the times of ME trade disputes. As long as people are happy with their lives & have enough why would they want to go to war?

Then too the CIA factbook has interesting info on the Ukraine Economy here.
My thesis still holds true - ALL wars are due to commerce & economies.
