    Not really sure this is going to be an interesting question but I shall try and give you an example:

    In Sri Lanka you have the civil war of the Buddhists vs Hindus with the Sinhalese vs the Tamils.

    Not in the sense we think i.e. blood death and violence! I don't think because MANY Buddhists are considered to be pacifists, but that is not to say they can not go to war all together....like you said, interesting question...

    Buddhist Warrior Monks frequently fought in Japan especially between the 10th - 16th Centuries. They were at the forefront of firearms technology when it emerged.

    Also, Chinese Shaolin Monks were very war-like when necessary.
