War is different!
A Shakespeare said, Cry havoc! And let slip th dogs of war...
War is the state of ultimate violence and savagery. The enemy that must be downed and subdued and forced to surrender totally - whatever the cost, whatever the level of behaviour and violence one must descend to. Simply whatever!
moreover if you're not prepared to do exactly that - don't go to war. its not fair on the guys who fight and put their lives on the line for you. don't do it - just because the armaments manufacturers have paid for your election campaign and you owe them one.
a civilised society is the opposite to war. that's us trying to get it right.
