War is used to suppress the evils of oppression and dictatorship. Done with honour War is the final resort when left with no other recourse to protect the innocent from external threats. The dead are honoured for their unselfish commitment to freedom.
War is used as a tool to further ones own political interests and media image. The bigger picture is not so important as the current picture (usually lasting 3 to 5 years). The dead are statistics and often blamed for their own demise.
