Bloodless war

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A bloodless war is generally a small conflict, crisis, or dispute between rival groups that is resolved without human death or injury, although the threat of violence usually seems very likely at the time. (Intentional property damage may still occur.) Typically, these events are recorded in history as wars even though the term "war" generally implies violence. Therefore, the term "bloodless war" is somewhat of an oxymoron. Nevertheless, there have been many conflicts throughout history labeled as such.
