If cake isn't evil, why do they make devil's food cake?

I think you'll find that cake [i]is[/i] evil though because it makes you fat if you eat too much, so this analogy doesn't work.

Why do military units name themselves after acts of violence, mythical creatures of violence, violent animals?

The average military, while capable of great evil - is not inherently so.

Are you suggesting a job where one of your roles is to kill/injure people isn't evil? Again, bad analogy.

You're missing the point here all the same, if you called your army, the "DoomsDay Army", you would give the impression that they are going to commit acts of evil, which is why if member alliances of DoomHouse wish to claim they aren't evil, why call the bloc, DoomHouse?

If cake is evil how could angel food cake exist? Angels are not evil.

Maybe the Doom aspect of DH is a tribute to the ever popular FPS :awesome:

Clearly, angel cake is the work of the devil, a cake of temptation with a name that doesn't sound evil, so eat to many and you'll become fat, hope this clears it up for you.

Well obviously one needs somewhere in which to enjoy Doom, many of my nations citizens find that Houses are the best place in which to do this.

Killing people isn't necessarily evil. There's this critically important thing you need to factor in when looking at conflict and it's called 'context'.

Is deposing a dictator that kills tens of thousands of innocents a day an evil act?

Why would the army that deposed the above mentioned hypothetical dictator be called the 69th Fighting Dragon Child Eaters?

Intimidation, sure. Is intimidation evil if it's used to keep you safe? Nature doesn't seem to think so going by the creatures it created.

The cake itself cannot be blamed for lack of willpower in fighting these temptations, nor the intelligence of those who eat such cake on a regular basis.

I believe there is a popular show called House.

Doomhouse finds the whole "destruction" theme rather fun, which is reflected in their choices of titles (Everything. Must. Die.) their various grandiose announcements, their dedication to national interest to the expense of whomever gets in the way, and their overbearing attitude towards those under their mercy.

I see the point you are tying to make but who are they trying to intimidate, there aren't any blocs which you could replace for [i]69th Fighting Dragon Child Eaters[/i], I mean there are a few other blocs with slightly intimidating names, possibly; Pandora's Box, Checkmate and Blood for Friends. And it's not like DoomHouse are some how fighting evil oppressors, they are the oppressors.

One side of the fight has aid freely flowing to all nations involved and encourage good natured, jovial comradeship.

The other side of the fight leaves younglings to die while the top tells them it's for the greater good, 'comrade'. And by greater good it is meant 'my technology, my infrastructure, my money'.

Which side is really the oppressor?

Sorry my stance isn't the official stance of the Mushroom Kingdom. On my own I'm an evil guy what can I say.

Yeah, under different circumstances, we'd be best friends, walking hand in hand in our matching powerpuff girl shirts, and drinking Pina Colada's from the same straw.

Pity really.

The side that is trying to dictate to others on how they should run their alliance.

Last I checked, 'the side that wins, makes the rules'.

And I don't see the terms demanded as particularly onerous. So, yeah.
