Wars fought among the Caucus towns, cities, and states, were efficient. All men had to fight, those that did not were cast to the bog, the victors kept what they won, and no safety was permitted. A total war model of the willing.
But fights that involve any other any, other than Caucus, have always gone differently. These are always dysgenic, unless the war is fought in reverse order. This is because the Caucuses and able go off to fight, while the shitskins take all the properties, estates, and females, both good and bad, left unattended. Shitskins use the righteous piety of the too meek and inept to fight as disguised 'justice' and 'deserving' to do the same, regardless of war (war just exacerbates it). Thus the worst, and the most corrupt, are not only majority excluded from the fight, they are chosen and rewarded extensively. The archikes enrich themselves, and the shitskins multiply, both with certain damnable definitions of 'fertility'.
To avoid this, the Caucuses must fight the shitskins directly, killing the meekest and most abominable directly. Which again, is not what is done in primary practice. In practice, the fight, and the wastelands of destruction afterwards, did the awarding to the victor, killed the meek and shitskin, and all agreed to uphold the reset score. Against shitskins, this must be reversed. This model is only followed rarely, as the time and distance and winter were the primary methods to avoid allocating Caucus might to killing every one else's lossful losses for them (they should kill their own losers, why do I have to go kill their losers for them for free? - only if there is now no other option, sure, and I'm going to take my profit since they cannot pay). This secondary model of war, kill them all (kill all shitskins firstly), is only executed rarely, usually indirectly, or only on small scale.
/aside: Shitskin is a functional definition: Those that throw their shit, demand your shit, and use their skins as an excuse to do so. They reject ownership of actions, scores, and time. They exploit all reserved spaces to fester in the places set aside for the meek, and hate said spaces. Thus feminists hate women, kikes hate jews, niggers hate blacks, etc. Each of these reserved spaces, set aside when there was wealth left over, refuse to self police the shitskins out, and thus all safe places must be burned, regardless.
The point being made, is the War is just a tool. Those that wield it determine the useful utility. The tool is irrelevant, next to the user. The shitskins fight to-lie-to-steal-to-eat, and the Caucuses fight to restructure inheritance and award away from lossful losses. The Caucus war model requires memory to keep the new score aftewards, which the shitskins don't have, and always seek to delete and rewrite, to keep lying to keep stealing to keep eating. The expense of killing shitskins is often too great, as it falls onto disparate accounting and resources to fulfill, so retreat to the high grounds and winter are arrived at instead. The model of war chosen over the last century saw some of the greatest advancement of the archkikes and shitskins ever witnessed - because it was not total war.
