War is an act of violence pushed to its utmost extreme. The immediate object of war is to disarm the opponent to achieve their compulsory submission to our will. The ultimate, and therefore true, object of war is the advancement of the interests of the Nation-State. War, then, is nothing more than the continuation of politics by the application of the "other means" of violence.
Carl von Clausewitz 1780-1831
Prussian General and military theorist
