    The following lists 9 wars fought over commodities:

    Well, personally, I think that's being awfully unfair to Greed.

    Culture. Religion. Greed. Humans are innately evil. There are a few good ones like vegans etc, but the vast majority are evil and selfish and cruel.

    no,,, but your definition of culture may not be what mine is 

    most wars are over money and power as most disagreements 

    IE: Japan felt financially isolated in WWII thus why they started the pacific war 

    so fact much of it based on misunderstanding -- still the war occurred and they began to reinvigorate past culture hates of China and Korea ---

    if remembering war of past is what you describe as culture and willingness to reprise OK

    IE: my buddy is Korean and he is 63 his hate is of communist China... his mothers hate is of Japan

    both based on the memories of their minds  ---

    I wouldn't say culture based but certainly religious, economy, power over others.

    An interesting theory, which has some  merit. Quite probably 'culture' was not on the minds of many people who instigated wars.
