     Note: As war is the contest of nations or states, it always
           implies that such contest is authorized by the monarch
           or the sovereign power of the nation. A war begun by
           attacking another nation, is called an offensive war,
           and such attack is aggressive. War undertaken to repel
           invasion, or the attacks of an enemy, is called
           defensive.
