Alma : 35
I noticed in this chapter that even though many threatenings were made to the king of the land of Jershon (most likely an Ammonite), he didn't seem to care at all. His concentration was on the many poor people of the Zoramites who were coming to his city.
Eventually, I believe this action was the tipping point for the wars forthcoming throughout the rest of the chapter of Alma. The Zoramites joined forces with the Lamanites, and decided it would be a good idea to kill as many of the Ammonites and Nephites as they could...
...and for what?
I guess because the Ammonites were treating the poor Zoramites better than the Zoramites did. Man... It seems that the reasons for war when started by the wicked are about as justified as "You're weird - therefore I must kill you." It's actually even worse. It's more like "You can take care of my people better than I can, so I'm gonna kill you." *shrug*
I guess the master of all evil doesn't have to come up with intelligent plans to create war, when the wicked want to kill each other anyway.
