International conflicts have different causes, which are not limited to opposing interests, abilities, and individual expectations. The debate on whether human behavior is the leading cause of war is a hypothesis that is hard to prove. Human behavior is not always associated with acts that disturb peace. For instance, humans engage in charitable events and acts of kindness; hence it is not their nature to cause war. For instance, one may argue that human nature caused a war in 1914; alternatively, it caused peace in 1910. However, it is correct to say that inappropriate behavior by humans leads to international conflicts, and individual goodness brings peace to the world.
Analyzing some of the international conflicts, such as the one between India and Pakistan and the one between the U.S and the Taliban, it is true that inappropriate behavior by humans causes conflict and war. India and Pakistan conflict emerged as a result of terrorist acts that can be considered improper human behavior. However, there have been other problems in the past, such as the territorial conflict over the possession of the Kashmir region and attacks from either side. However, the decision to have peace can also arise from humans or individuals willing to have peace.
The conflict between the U.S and the Taliban has existed for a long due to terrorism and disagreement between Afghanistan and the United States on handing over Osama Bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda. This conflict was caused by opposing interests, terrorism, and the desire to impose retribution on extremists who had killed U.S citizens. Terrorism can be classified as improper human behavior, while the urge to punish through retribution is against human nature. This indicates that international conflicts result from a variety of issues that are not limited to human behavior.
