War is a way of shattering to pieces,
or pouring into the stratosphere,
or sinking in the depths of the sea,
materials which might otherwise be used
to make the masses too comfortable,
and hence, in the long run, too intelligent.

The very word 'war', therefore, has become misleading.
It would probably be accurate to say

that by becoming continuous
war has ceased to exist. ... War is Peace.

George Orwell, 1984

After 10 years I'm getting a bit tired of this war stuff.
