The cause of this war is most likely the same as any. Greed and arrogance. The human condition.

Religion, my son, did not enter into it

As a lad in Canada we were taught that the underlying cause was the desire for Manifest Destiny – i.e. that many politicians in the US felt that they wanted all of North America – at least above the southwest

I recognize that my American counterparts were taught a very different thing
