Do all wars between different races involve a majority white country?

There's never been a war such as China vs Iraq or Iran vs Zulus for example. There's wars within a race such as Iran vs Iraq, China vs Japan, Hutu vs Tutsis etc. But whenever it's a war between different races (ie ethnic groups who don't physically resemble each other) it always seems to be a majority white country against someone else.

Are there any exceptions in modern history?

    The USA seem to try and stop the fighting with fighting you ask now how can one stop the fighting with fighting simply one wins and one does not win its a win win situation 

  • Hello, i add, may yes, because was reflection in the nature laws which caused violence from roman, and may roman was interested about the material issues but not for ethical issues, but no problem where a god control everything and in post-modernity a nature become true and a good nations established an United Nations and its controlled empires as good global system e.g. commonwealth is a new good Christians controlled empire from an United Nations "basically populations govern themselves"..

    Depending on your definition between 15-20% of the world's population are white; they've also been the most technologically advanced group for the past 700 years or so. Technological advances lead to increased populations which survive longer increasing the need to expand frontiers (we want your space), so eventually there's conflict between white and other races. Prior to this expansion, and following the fall of the Roman empire, it was mostly Arab and African populations doing the fighting and expanding; we may be returning to this situation now.

    In modern history you could look at the Afro/Arab-Israeli wars, conflicts between China and India and others on the borders of contrasting ethnic groups for examples of conflicts not involving white-majority countries.

    Most wars happen between neighboring countries. For example, Japan fought a war against China. France fought wars against Germany and Britain. Iraq fought against Iran. Iraq invaded Kuwait. Neighboring countries seldom have different racial makeups. Most wars are fought for economic reasons, or their may be wars fought for ideological reasons, such as Islamic countries fighting Israel. Civil wars such as the industrial north fighting the agricultural south over slavery in the USA, communists fight against capitalists in China, or Muslims fighting against the government in Iran, are not race wars.x

    Tribal wars may happen between African tribes and wars in the Balkans are similar. I do not remember any war being waged because one race tried to eliminate another race. It is probably because such wars do not accomplish anything economically. Even when American whites waged war against native Americans, race was not the motivating factor. The reason for genocide was territory. White Americans wanted to rob natives of land and resources.

    There are no races, so your question makes no sense at all.
