All of the above most likely. The innocent die just as easily as the guilty in wars, and the suffering goes on long after the fighting stops. I think part of the problem that encourages some to hope it happens is that Hollywood sanitizes and glorifies wars, and the good guys virtually always win. Real wars are messy and sometimes the bad guy wins. It comes down to who was stronger/smarter/luckier, not who was right or who was good.
