What is Pentecostal theology of war?

What is the theology of war? Generally speaking pentecostals are hawkish and seem to want to shoot first and ask question later. Three families from Laos now live in our neighborhood and that has made me curious as to why they and many more are here? So I have been doing some research about Laos and found out that they sustained the heaviest bombing of any nation ever; even though they were never our enemy.
Our country flew 580,000 bombing runs over Laos and dropped two million tons of explosives, killing over a million of their people. Even now less than one percent of the unexploded bombs have been deactivated and tens of thousands have been killed because of that, since we left that part of the world.
Was it wrong for the U. S. to do that? Does any guilt filter down to us common people? Is there any way for us to right those wrongs?
Have we learned our lesson or are we apt to do it all over again?

    Could Pentecostalism use more focus on peace and justice? http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/pentecostalism-focus-on-peace-and-justice/

    Real Pentecostals are conscientious objectors.

      WE should as much as possible develop a language of peace. If millions of families were to discover ways to really communicate to children, to husband and wife, to employees and all others we come in contact with it would help. Next give more support to diplomats and all others who must try to find a way to bring peace between nations.
