8. Good luck ! Survival v self-interest v rich/corporate interest v ideals v
"entanglements/treaties" v tribal relationships v religion beliefs v need for "power" v current rulers pet project.

And you want current examples.

I suggest Britian as a google should get you many examples of all the above.

But how do you show survival is most important reason and trumpts all others - around 30 BC Octavian fought Anthony because he would not remove Cleo from her throne - largest battle up to that time - and he won and renamed himself Augustus and it led to 300 years of peace for that area of the world. But was survival of Rome the motive for the battle?

Again good luck - glad I am 40-50 years past doing essay tests.
