In reply to comment: Proving that hypocrisy (see in situ)

War can be murder on a massive scale,

but not necessarily. Aggressive war to take other people's stuff is murdering, but banding together to defend your family, town, country, or whatever, from aggressors is not wrong. Also, the way you conduct yourself in a defensive war can be wrong. Even in a defensive war, killing non-combatants is murder, as per the Biblically based Christian Doctrine of Just War.
