The reason given for closing was "see the help center"
However, on looking at the help center, I see
Matters of Policy:
Central to the idea of this site are the nuts and bolts of policies introduced by governments, presumably for the welfare of their citizens.
How could it be possible that questions about the use of military power from one country against another country is not part of politics?
Is it possible that the Mods have not read Clausewitz on war i.e. "War is a continuation of politics"?
We see, therefore, that War is not merely a political act, but also a real political instrument, a continuation of political commerce, a carrying out of the same by other means. All beyond this which is strictly peculiar to War relates merely to the peculiar nature of the means which it uses. That the tendencies and views of policy shall not be incompatible with these means, the Art of War in general and the Commander in each particular case may demand, and this claim is truly not a trifling one. But however powerfully this may react on political views in particular cases, still it must always be regarded as only a modification of them; for the political view is the object, War is the means, and the means must always include the object in our conception.
Or there are the words from Sun Tzu about the political dimensions of war.
