I don't think it was the cause. It was the trigger. The cause was a lot of little countries with nationalistic aspirations, infatuation with military machines, and old prejudices and hatreds. War is caused when a lot of folks think it is to their advantage (economic, political, social, and "religious" advantage) to wage war.
