What Kind of God is This?

Shane Claiborne, in his book, "The Irresistible Revolution", relates this story:
One beautiful Iraqi mother threw her hands in the air and said, "Your country is declaring war in the name of God and asking God's blessing, and that is the same thing my country is doing. What kind of God is this? What has happened to the God of love, to the Prince of Peace?" - pg. 218
Of course our response is that "our God is the True God, so we're in the right". But even assuming that to be true, is it really the Prince of Peace's will that we be so aggressive in "protecting" our country?

Just askin' ....
