It was the very right term, before I was posted. You were talking about how what it wasn't it at all.
You're still using the term total war wrong. Militarism and total war are distinctly different things.
Meaning, me using English as second language doesn't prevent me understanding the difference between a manipulated definition or a real definition of total war -or any other term- that you and other first language speakers argue from. Do you need any further explanation in English or do you need to learn another language enough to carry on this conversation to get that?
Simply put, you're wrong. It's as if I were to go to France and lecture people on their use of language. The term you want is militarism, plain and simple. Total war has a different meaning that has been around since the days when America had a tiny standing military.
Then try to act like it. But then you informed me on behalf of people where you live that nobody cares about it, so why bother...
Your arrogance is funny. Maybe I should go to France and argue with them that I understand their use of language better than they do.
