There is always danger in pointing to a single cause of any given war,
even if the history tests demand it. I have always been intrigued, for
example, at just how much our involvement in Iraq can be traced back
to the attempted assassination of George Bush (41) the father of
George Bush (43) who was the guy starting the war...

Perhaps history will have more to say on this topic someday.
