The causes of war aren't a popularity contest. It doesn't matter what the general belief is, what matters is the reasons of the leaders who start the war. The general belief is just a means to get the population behind the war that the leaders want for the real reasons.

The second Gulf War was not about WMD just because a large number of people thought it was. It was about conquest/oil/money/showing up Daddy.
