War

From dKosopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

War is the state of two or more forces in opposition, supported by some social institution such as government or religion. A narrower definition restricts the sphere of war to conflicts involving violent force between sovereign entities. Usages such as "the War on Terror" stretch the former definition, allowing attacks on ideologies or conditions directly, and such usage is disparaged by many.
