Function of God in War

In a war, both sides imagine they are in the right and a deity is on their side. The worse they behave, the more they have to convince themselves of the justness of their cause to justify their atrocities. Note, for example, how Americans fancy themselves as the saviours of the planet. They are also the only nation to routinely use banned weapons, torture, target primarily civilians and to attack unprovoked.
