    Weigh up a fight and a War.
     
  4. What's the difference? A war is just a big fight between 2 organized groups. Same as if one colony of ants attacks the other.

    I see them as separate but to a degree one is an extension of the other.

    As in fighting happens in Wars, but in separate little pockets to gain a certain thing (like US forces fighting to control Baghdad for example) but War encompasses all the fighting as a collective.

    Animals fight over territory sure, but they don't start 'Wars' (at least as I see them) where they are trying to take over the lands of Africa.

    I think Gunny's trying to say that wars are for political or social gain, and are consciously strategically planned, and that animals don't do that.
     
  7. Wars are fought over territory and resources. The reasons why the 2 sides oppose one another may vary (i.e. race, religion, etc), but they fight to gain something physical. Animals may not divide themselves based on philosophical beliefs, but they do divide themselves in tribes.
