Politics is the most important in discipline and pragmatism. The relationship between war and politics adhere to resolving human conflict. We look at politics as a historical perspective, since it's been around since Athens times. Aristotle said there are 4 subdivides of politics, first is budget and funding, are we going to fund the war or not? Essentially, we're saying fiance is a test of power. Then management, domestic management is integral to running the state. If the person is able to persuade and therefore can succeed. We need to persuade people because they are always in competition. Competition for natural resources, power, etc. That is also why we need security, ultimately we are looking for power. Public speaking and debate were significant in Greek society. Socrates was a part of it as well. The person who leads is how the leading is expected. In order to engage in politics, you can participate in the war, military, or the army force. Greeks realized that there is a competition for power. So the question is “how do you resolve conflict?”: Whoever has the best legal case or argument is what you call a peaceful resolve. You can do it peacefully or destructively. Moreover, what is power?: Influence, control, and infringement in a way that benefits you and not necessarily them. One type of power is coercive power, its an act of force through the means of threat, “do this or else!”. The ability to harm and sanction power, for example, the nuclear weapons that are held by the government help instill fear and determine power. The one with much power is going to prevail. We are looking at power in relative terms. This is why states lose or win wars, power is not absolute. Whoever is growing slow has less power and whoever is growing fast has more power, power is relative.War uses the utmost exertion of power. It can be used as a tool for politicians to achieve their objectives. And this objective will be used to determine both the aim of the military force and military strength, that may show various results in the effects on its people. In brief, politics is measure in war. The measure of the effects and mass of nature. It is implicitly stated that war is as an act of force compelling the enemy to its will, which involves the use of weaponry, military, and advance encroachment of states. Irregular forces are not victorious unless they interpret their irregular gains into their advantage and bring military, strategy, and politics against their enemy. The original irregular belligerent can only achieve their motives unless they are able to generate regular military strength.
