Title: Proxy war

A war involving smaller "clients" (countries or armed movements) acting as proxies for larger colliding forces -- especially the major imperialist powers.

The proliferation of such wars (arming them, provoking them, helping them drag out, justifying them) is one of the crimes of this system and the major powers -- who use them (very cynically) to joust for advantage, to drag down their rivals, to neutralize key parts of the world and so on.
