Summary/Abstract: The war is a complex social phenomenon, a limit-phenomenon. It belongs to a social essence which is confrontation. By all means, not all the confrontations are wars, but each war is a confrontation, namely, a violent armed one. The war isn’t a curse or a catastrophe, even if sometimes leads to inconceivable human, material, ecology and cultural disasters. War is a reality of all the times. It’s a mean to open up a strategic situation. It’s a way to end or to emphasize a crisis, to prolong, to bring it to a limit-threshold from where the change, the mutation follows. This is the case of the revolutionary war. But, the war isn’t a state, even if often people are powerless confronting it. It isn’t a punishment, a fatality; it’s a resultant of some political, economic, social, ideological, psychological vectors that are in a state of confrontation, incompatibility or competence. After all, war is an act of political will namely a violent instrument of politics for getting out of a crisis.
