The definitive theory of War

According to this article on ape behaviour it is mentioned that the “wars” witnessed between neighbouring bands of Chimpanzees seem to have been brought on by human encroachment on their habitat.

I would venture further by saying that it doesn't matter whether it's fish, pandas, hippopotamuses, or cute and cuddly koala bears: if you see a bunch of them fighting, assume there is a human being involved somewhere.

How about that for a meta-theory of War?

I recently read an article that said monkeys have been observed trading food for sex. We can learn so much from our simplistic cousins...

PS> I hope mo humans were involved!
