Here is a clip of Christopher Hitchens debating Tony Blair about Catholicism. He makes an interesting point toward the end about religion and warfare.

There is an interesting point made about the “messianic fanatics” getting a hold of “apocalyptic weapons”. The theory of mutually assured destruction doesn’t count for much when one of the factions are full of martyrs, does it? It might sound more like a masochistic temptation more than a means of deterrence. Although this is probably obvious haha

Hitchens was correct, his warnings about this should not go unheeded.
